Week 1. Planning and Evaluation:

  • Gather requirements and determine objectives.
  • Evaluate existing infrastructure, services, apps, workflows, and overall technology choices.
  • Scope and backlog planning, setting the priorities
  • Suggest improvements, if necessary.

Week 2–4. Prepare a new cloud environment:

  • Enable Cloud Foundry on Microsoft Azure.
  • Provide cloud services: load balancing, databases, message queues, etc.
  • Provide high availability to ensure smooth migration and zero downtime, using such best practices as blue-green deployment.

Week 5. Logging and monitoring:

  • Implementing logging and monitoring solutions or reconfiguring the existing ones.

Week 6–8. Refactoring:

  • Assess portability of an application
  • Refactor applications according to the 12-factor principles towards a cloud-native microservices pattern if needed
  • Decouple monolith apps into a microservices-based application, whenever a more profound transformation of the customer’s development lifecycle is required.

Week 9–11. Migration:

  • Setup of CI/CD pipelines to automate application migration to a new environment and reproducible delivery of application changes to production
  • Gather and analyze the most important data and reconfigure logging and monitoring according to it.


  • A strategic plan on the running workload migration to a new environment using best practices.
  • Highly available Cloud Foundry installation on Microsoft Azure.
  • Implemented logging and monitoring solution.
  • Cloud-native application portfolio deployed in Cloud Foundry.
  • CI/CD pipelines, which automate further application migration and reproducible delivery of application changes to production.
