Cloud Migration Planning

Apps Associates has migrated more than 180 workloads to the cloud, including AWS. A customer’s Oracle license contract governs usage compliance not the location of your applications. We handle the pre-migration compliance review, remediation steps as necessary and migration to the cloud.
