Migration Roadmap & Risk Assessment

We simplify your journey to the cloud by quickly assessing your overall environment, and providing recommendations on how to expedite the migration of applications, modernize strategic applications, and manage risks all along the way. 

Cloud Migration Approach

Cloud Migration Options

Depending on your needs, we can support small, medium, and large scale cloud migration initiatives:

  • Start small and migrate a web, mobile app, or line of business application.
  • Migrate 3 to 5 targeted applications to assess the viability of the cloud.
  • Migrate hundreds of applications.

Migration of Existing Solutions

Migrate your legacy systems to enhance flexibility, ensure they are right-sized to scale on demand, mitigate ongoing operational risk and lower ongoing support costs.

App Modernization / Rapid Prototyping

Modernize and create new market distinction with cloud-ready apps. We rapidly design and develop prototypes, then evolve them into full-fidelity applications via agile iterative development using a Platform as a Service. Some of our best work is when we take a great app or idea and update it for today.

Managed Hosting & Application Support

Need to ensure your applications are right-sized to scale on demand? Launch pros manage your hardware and software configuration, technical support, patch management, system maintenance, monitoring and updates. Whew, that's a load off your mind!

Cloud Cost Optimization

Optimize the value of your cloud investment.  Map costs to business value, right-size resources, and enable cost control.

IoT is not a revolution, but an evolution of technologies.  We bring experience in product development, solution architecture, integration, data management and CX to accelerate your transformational solutions.

Case Study

Expedite Journey to the Cloud

Challenge

Expedia has thousands of web applications running in the cloud, including many that were migrated from on-prem. These applications support mission critical, publicly visible websites with millions of users and require a platform for provisioning, deployment, monitoring, and remediation on cloud infrastructure.

Solution

Launch joined with Expedia’s Cloud Platform Team to deliver onboarding and automated pipeline components to enable migration of more than 1,400 applications to a hybrid cloud. Together we built an integrated platform that provides real-time, enhanced metrics on the state of their applications, deployments, and environments.
