AWS Migration Readiness Assessment (MRA)

Successful AWS migrations begin with an MRA


What is an MRA?

Cloud migrations are complex and can easily become time-consuming and unnecessarily costly without proper planning and preparation. You need to consider all the business, operations, infrastructure and budgetary factors involved before proceeding with a migration.

The AWS MRA examines the current state of your business and environment, identifies any readiness gaps and makes recommendations to ensure you're best prepared for migrating to the cloud.

As an AWS Premier Tier Services and Migration Competency Partner, Mission Cloud has the expertise to help you successfully migrate to AWS. We use AWS MRA and migration best practices to help you identify, plan for and address financial, technological and operational challenges that come with a migration.


Benefits of an AWS MRA

The results of an MRA are the foundation of a migration plan that'll align your business and technology objectives with AWS best practices for cost, security and performance. Our extensive experience in migrations combined with an AWS MRA offers:

Your Own Strategic Migration Roadmap

Strategic roadmapping through the MRA allows for organizational consensus around a clear path forward and understanding what success looks like.


Support for Business and Operations Modernization

Stay competitive in your industry by driving business objectives and innovation through modernization on AWS.


Mitigation Against Risk & Costly Surprises

Avoid migration pitfalls and complexities through discovery tools, automation and proven processes. We'll help you determine all the requirements and costs post-migration to avoid unwelcome surprises.

Reliable Forecasting for Optimal Financial Planning

Mission Cloud gathers information about your infrastructure to help you prevent overprovisioning and stay on budget. We emphasize accurate financial forecasting and provide increased certainty, transparency and granularity into the factors that drive spend.


What You Can Expect From Your MRA

Your MRA begins with a half-day workshop based on the AWS Cloud Adoption Framework to gauge your organization’s migration readiness. We work with you and other key stakeholders in your organization to learn about your business, objectives, operations and infrastructure and to identify migration gaps. This session is a great way to build consensus around your cloud competence, capability and commitment. 

After the workshop, we analyze the collected data and schedule a one-hour feedback session where we provide you with a full report of your MRA, projected total cost of ownership (TCO) and recommendations for the next steps.

Who Is the Workshop For?

We recommend the following stakeholders attend the workshop: 
  • CEO
  • CTO/Chief Architect
  • CIO
  • VP Engineering
  • IT Finance Leader
  • Security Leader
  • Network Leader
  • Application Dev Leader
  • Operations Leader
  • Applications Owner

“I’ve worked at Evolve Media for nine years, and the company has been around nearly two decades now. In all that time we have never before had a partner that we could count on the way we count on Mission. The Mission team was there leading our particularly time-sensitive migration every step of the way – even during the 18-hour shifts as our deadline approached. That kind of trust in a partner is something we’d never had. I knew the people on Mission’s team cared – and really understood AWS migrations.”
