Cloud Design, Migration and Optimisation

Fordway provides consultancy to assist at each stage of your cloud journey, from design and build to migration and management.

If you want to migrate applications or services to the cloud we’ll match your requirements to the most effective solution. That could be selecting the right public cloud instance or platform for your application or designing a fully integrated hybrid cloud or multi-cloud solution. We also ensure that your chosen solution meets your security and compliance requirements.

To find the right solution for your organisation we:

  • Baseline your existing IT environments
  • Review the cloud options available
  • Map the baseline against the range of cloud service providers
  • Plan and manage the transition to cloud
  • Help you optimise your cloud for performance and cost-efficiency

“Fordway’s experience and the support they offered was a key factor in our decision to award them the contract,”

Damon Fox, Digital Integration Manager at Fusion.
