We have also published training videos covering the major aspects of cloud and data center migration projects in order to help others succeed.

Application Mapping using the Build Sheet Method
An important step to developing a data center or cloud migration plan is to map your applications and identify the server to server interface connections. This is often one of the most daunting tasks for teams, causing them to stumble and fall. Over the years, the build sheet method of mapping applications has proven to be the most cost effective way to gather accurate information.
Migrating Workloads using the Cut Sheet Method
After you master application mapping using the build sheet method, you can proceed to developing your move plans which we call cut sheets. At cutover, you simply follow the cut sheet plan to move your applications, test them and receive operational sign-off.
