A Case Study in Modernization
The Azure Foundations Assessment recently played a critical role in a client’s modernization plan. This New York metropolitan area town department needed their cloud workloads moved to a public cloud, more specifically, Microsoft Azure, to lessen reliance on regional infrastructure and facilities. The department’s current environment necessitated frequent hardware repurchases and releases, which was not cost-effective. Tallan successfully responded to the town’s proposal request, as we created and carried out a data-driven approach that aided this client’s modernization to a safe, effective Azure environment.

Tallan began by implementing a Azure Foundations Assessment, with Microsoft supporting the project with funding. This engagement scanned all 151 Windows Server Nodes and 5 Linux Nodes inside a single town domain. This allowed Tallan to gather all the information required to decide how to create the migration plan. Tallan’s analysis successfully located VMs, databases, and applications that supported the migration roadmap with am Azure-ready plan in place. Tallan then prioritized all workloads, with categorization applied to support, aging hardware, and low consumption markers, relying on the data output from the Azure Foundations Assessment.
