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.
