*Well-Architected Review

What is it?

In an era of rapid digital transformation and stricter compliance standards, a documented review of your AWS Cloud environment is necessary for long-term success. Without insight and a future framework, you face potential resource wastage, lack of visibility, and unnecessary risk.

The Well-Architected Review is a consistent and thorough process of identifying gaps in AWS Cloud architecture. Our Solution Architects guide you through the AWS Well-Architected Framework to evaluate workloads through a series of interactive discussions and data collection, pin-pointing business and technical issues.

Gain insight into business issues such as unused resources or data security and a detailed report of all findings across each pillar, along with a set of recommendations for remediation which are prioritised based on risk, cost savings, along with effort and cost to remediate.

Evaluate

We’ll identify business-critical areas you need to address in order to close security gaps, accelerate efficiency, eliminate waste, and improve performance.

Educate

We guide your business every step of the way with a documented strategy. Our goal is to best educate your team on how to accelerate cloud evolution.

Evolve

We’re with you for the long-term. We outline all the steps needed to drive continuous improvement and growth of apps based on your key business objectives.
