Cobham was ready to embark on a digital transformation, including the migration of its legacy Oracle and Microsoft applications to a cloud infrastructure. To ensure a positive long-term outcome, it began by conducting a detailed assessment. This effort was to determine the possibility of transforming its entire suite of applications to a common cloud platform.

AST completed the cloud assessment and determined that a total transformation of Cobham’s applications to a cloud infrastructure was, indeed, possible. The assessment included portfolio rationalization, infrastructure consolidation, and standardization of IT Services, targeting improvements across 22 global locations.

A long-term roadmap for cloud migration ensures that you take the right steps in the short-term.”
