Cloud planning, migration & optimisation

Livingstone’s Cloud Services help you plan to move critical software and infrastructure to the cloud, monitor the migration and then optimize consumption and costs in the cloud.

As organizations adopt cloud-based software and infrastructure, so Livingstone has evolved the delivery of Software Asset Management programs to deliver value at every stage of your cloud journey:

  • Optimizing on-premises licensing
  • Identifying key candidates for cloud migration
  • Tracking the move from on-premises to cloud
  • Optimizing visibility and cost of software and infrastructure in the cloud
  • Providing a single view of ‘hybrid cloud’ consumption

The ability to concurrently track resources both on-premises and in the cloud is becoming more important as software vendors increasingly adopt a hybrid cloud model, encouraging customers to consume new products and services in the cloud while continuing to support legacy on-premises applications.
