Transform, Innovate and Accelerate With Lightwell Cloud Consulting Services
Moving to the cloud is an inevitability, not a fanciful future initiative. But cloud migration and architecture are complex to manage in-house.
Planning the initiative, tying IT activities to business goals and hiring the right skills and talent for the job takes time, money and dedication.
The journey to the cloud is not always smooth. Lightwell paves the way.
How are you preparing for the speedbumps ahead?
Join the Great Cloud Migration
Companies of all shapes and sizes are flocking to cloud technology in 2020. The global cloud service market will reach $266 billion this year, and an estimated 94 percent of enterprises are already leveraging the cloud.
Cloud services meet several business needs, both internal and customer-facing:
- Increased demand for hyper-personalized customer experiences.
- Pressing requirements to modernize legacy systems and support new business models.
- Leveraging and supporting emerging technologies, like advanced analytics and AI.
The benefits of moving to the cloud extend beyond the IT department into the entire organization.
Why Move to the Cloud?
Performance and Growth
Moving to the cloud can yield many benefits, but the move isn’t so simple.
How do you migrate thousands of services? Which cloud service(s) do you choose? Which legacy applications should you modernize first?
These questions, and dozens like them, dominate the conversation early on in cloud migration. We help you find the answers and the way forward.
Use Lightwell as your trusted partner to navigate every stage of the cloud journey.

We walk you through an assessment to determine the best path forward. These include determining your cloud maturity, looking at which applications are cloud-ready and which integrations you will need for cloud success.
Build an in-depth understanding of your current architecture and a strategic plan for modernizing your architecture with the cloud.
By working closely with your team, we provide a cloud architecture design that covers infrastructure, processes, performance, security and more. Engage with our cloud and enterprise architecture experts to receive:

Lightwell doesn’t just plan; we’re here for you when it’s actually time to make the move to the cloud. ‘Lift and shift’ and DIY often create more problems than they solve. Lightwell focuses on creating customized migration plans for every client.
