 Smartronix to Help Emory University Migrate their Academic Data Center to the Cloud

Herndon, VA – (14 December 2018) – Smartronix has been engaged by the Emory University Library and Information Technology Services Department to plan for the migration of the Department's academic data center resources to the Amazon Cloud. Emory University has made a strategic commitment to the Cloud to provide faster, more efficient, and flexible information services to academic users of the university's information resources. The university expects to reap benefits of greater flexibility in supporting research needs, increased agility to user computing demands, better responsiveness to seasonal computing demands, and lower overall cost of providing information resources to its constituents.

Smartronix will be adapting a tried and tested methodology created by Amazon Web Services (AWS) called Migration Readiness Planning (MRP). The Smartronix MRP solution provides consultative and advisory services that incorporate the AWS Cloud Transformation Maturity Model, AWS Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF), and Smartronix' own Foundational Agile Strategic Transformation (FAST) framework. This includes industry-best practices to ensure Emory University and its clients realize the maximum benefits gained from adoption of AWS Cloud technologies.

During this engagement, Smartronix will provide Emory with strategic guidance to prepare the Emory information technology team to perform the migration. Smartronix also will provide execution support for key artifacts like business case, skills assessment, and training plan development; establishment of a Cloud advisory group; and update of operating models for Cloud operations. Additional support will include ensuring security in environment and processes; applying hands-on migration experience; and developing a practical, fast-tracked migration plan.
