A growing number of businesses are considering moving their applications to public and hybrid clouds, in order to compete more effectively and replace outdated data centers and applications. Unfortunately, migrating company-wide software applications includes the risks of service interruptions, project failure and delays. Many companies are not prepared to evaluate connectivity and performance issues and migration to the cloud can take months or even years, if not properly executed. Wheelhouse provides comprehensive Cloud Migration Services that utilizes best-in-class technologies, ensuring a smooth migration.
Wheelhouse employs a standard methodology and effective architecture to plan and migrate your business applications, data, operating systems and configuration − based on your company’s needs. These standardized methodologies shorten project timelines and decrease costs, when migrating to public clouds or between clouds, virtual platforms or data centers.

Successful migrations require actionable analysis. Unfortunately, to assess the current environment, for cloud migration, most organizations must rely on the process of conducting interviews with their team and collecting data, manually. This error-prone process can lead to delays and roadblocks for moving enterprise applications to the cloud.
Wheelhouse Solutions utilizes a holistic strategy to evaluate the cloud-readiness of our customers' business applications. We help clients assess the cloud portability of their enterprise applications, using a proprietary tools framework, and then execute their migration to the Cloud. We employ analytical methodologies to rate the application fitness for the Cloud. Our methods utilize all aspects of the appropriate qualities - risk, technology and business viability.
