Global Healthcare Technology Company Moves Windows Servers to Azure

Business Situation

Following a major acquisition, a global healthcare technology company assessed their newly consolidated IT infrastructure. Upon evaluation, they determined that their hybrid cloud infrastructure could not support go-forward business or technology goals.

Powered by 500 on-premises VMs and Amazon Web Services, the existing environment lacked agility and scalability. A reliance on Windows Server 2000 and 2003 also left the organization susceptible to security vulnerabilities and compliance risks. With a cumbersome physical footprint and outdated systems, the healthcare technology knew it was time to make a change. They needed to move to a secure and reliable cloud platform. They needed to migrate and modernize applications. They needed an experienced technology partner to help them accelerate their digital transformation.

They needed Core BTS and Microsoft Azure.

Our Solution

First, to ensure the organization could experience long-term success, Core BTS led key stakeholders through a cloud assessment and workshop. The output was a comprehensive cloud strategy and migration roadmap.

Next, Core BTS put the newly developed cloud strategy into action. Core BTS helped the organization address their most pressing issue: outdated versions of Windows Server and SQL Server. Using a lift and shift approach, Core BTS cloud specialists quickly moved the organizations Windows Server and SQL Server instance into Azure. Then, to ensure the infrastructure had replications and backups in the event of a disaster, Core BTS enabled Azure Site Recovery.

Then, following Core BTS' delivery methodology and the Microsoft Cloud Adoption Framework, additional priority workloads were moved into Azure.

The Results

In 2020, Core BTS provided the organization with the assessment, planning, and migration skills needed to build a reliable cloud infrastructure. As a result, the healthcare technology provider has addressed security vulnerabilities, freed up resources, and eliminated budgetary constraints. Now, the company is more efficient, secure, and agile.

Ready to Move to Azure?

Core BTS' Azure Accelerate program takes the guesswork out of cloud planning and adoption. The program operationalizes cloud adoption through structured analysis, financial planning, and roadmap development. If you are ready to jumpstart your journey to the cloud, Azure Accelerate is the way to go.
