“Managing big data on-premises is complex and requires expert technical talent to troubleshoot most problems. That’s why more enterprises are moving their data workloads to the cloud, but the migration process isn’t easy, as there’s little visibility into costs and configurations,” said Kunal Agarwal, CEO, Unravel Data. “Unravel’s new cloud migration assessment offer delivers actionable insights and visibility so organisations no longer have to fly blind. No matter where an organisation is in its cloud adoption and migration journey, now is the time to accelerate strategic thinking and execution, and this offering ensures the fastest, most cost effective and valuable transition for the full journey-to-cloud lifecycle.”
“Companies have major expectations when they embark on a journey to the cloud. Unfortunately, organisations that migrate manually often don’t fulfill these expectations as the process of transitioning to the cloud becomes more difficult and takes longer than anticipated. And then once there, costs rise higher than forecasted and apps are difficult to optimise,” said Enterprise Strategy Group senior analyst Mike Leone. “This all results from the lack of insight into their existing data apps on-premises and how they should map those apps to the cloud. Unravel’s new offer fills a major gap in the cloud journey, equipping enterprises with the tools to deliver on their cloud goals.”

The Unravel cloud assessment service encompasses four phases. The first phase is a discovery meeting in which the project is scoped, stakeholders identified and KPIs defined. Then during technical discovery, Unravel works with customers to define use cases, install the product and begin gathering workload data. The initial readout is next, when enterprises receive a summary of their infrastructure and workloads along with fresh insights and recommendations for cloud migration. Then comes the completed assessment, including final insights, recommendations and next steps.
