Azure Planning Assessment

What if you could use tangible, real-world numbers to support your argument for moving to the cloud? Would that help you sell it to upper management?

Working in conjunction with Apparatus and Cloudamize, SHI’s cloud experts produce an Azure deployment strategy which captures your virtual machine capacity and shows the actual benefits you would receive by moving to the cloud. We survey your existing physical and virtual environments and use that data to recommend your best approach into the cloud, estimated costs and what it’ll take to get you there.


  • Quick: Results are provided in as little as one week
  • Thorough: On-premise and data center machine usage data is collected
  • Accurate: Provisioning and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is factored into CPU, memory, disk and network I/O usage metrics
  • Accessible: Detailed results are available through an audit report or SaaS platform


  1. Goal Setting: We explore your objectives, review concerns and define priorities
  2. Analysis and Planning: We analyze your environment’s data and identify your assets and how they should look in a cloud setting
  3. Solution and Next Steps: We present an Azure Readiness Assessment Report, showing the benefits of moving to the cloud and the simplest way to get you there
