How Citihub Consulting Helped

  • Assessed existing application estate using available data points and categorised applications into a set of patterns which could be mapped to future-state cloud capabilities
  • Developed questionnaires and to help determine the level of coupling between infrastructure and application. Verified these responses with raw data and interviews where required
  • Defined and implemented tooling to manage data points (incl. inventory, questionnaires and planning data)
  • Used inputs from the pattern work and coupling assessment to create high level migration roadmaps for applications
