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