Cloud Migration Support2019-02-04T11:51:20+00:00

As part of our third-party Oracle and SAP support, we help customers migrate from on-premise to cloud by enabling savings, time, staff optimization, and business flexibility.

The cloud market exceeds $100 billion in revenue and shows no signs of slowing down. According to Gartner, close to 80% of surveyed enterprises have adopted some form of cloud, whether Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), or another form.

The journey to cloud is confusing, costly, personal, and complex. It shouldn’t be rushed. Per Gartner, there are five distinct strategies that enterprises are deploying to migrate their on-premise applications and infrastructures to cloud: rehosting, revising, rearchitecting, rebuilding, and replacing. As each enterprise has its own unique IT landscape, with a variety of different software product lines, there is no one-size-fits-all cloud migration strategy. The best approach usually involves the execution of more than one of the five deployment strategies.

Five Cloud Migration Strategies

It is not surprising that Oracle and SAP are incentivizing their customers to move to their respective cloud solutions — regardless of readiness or fit. This is referred to as single vendor “lock-in.” For enterprises that have decided to migrate from Oracle or SAP on-premise to Oracle or SAP cloud, third-party support may or may not be a viable alternative. For everybody else, third-party support is certainly worth investigating.

Spinnaker Support has become an increasingly popular enabler of cloud migration for enterprises that run Oracle and/or SAP. Besides the superior level of service, we facilitate:

  • Savings on annual support fees for stable on-premise applications that are often reallocated to fund cloud migration. A growing number of our nearly 1,100 customers are still firming up their cloud strategies. Their on-premise applications are functioning well with years of value ahead. Spinnaker Support takes care of these applications until a customer decides to migrate.
  • Time to investigate and identify the optimal cloud migration strategy. Time to build funds. Time to wait for cloud solutions to properly mature. The pressure applied by Oracle and SAP to “lock-in” their migration roadmap can be countered with more time. There’s no reason to rush to an inferior cloud strategy.
  • Staff Optimization – You want the right staff with the right skills at the right time. Spinnaker Support provides the deep software support skills required to help customers with today’s application environment while customers re-tool their internal staffs to ready for tomorrow’s digital/cloud environment.
  • Adaptability –As customers move from on-premise to cloud, we can offer flexible commercial terms to align support services and fees with license use.

There’s no reason to rush to the cloud if you’re not ready. Spinnaker Support provides its Oracle and SAP third-party support customers the latitude they need to fund, staff, and time their moves to the cloud.
