The Principal Phases of the Google Cloud Adoption Framework

This phase enables stakeholders to comprehend the business effect and anticipated business results of cloud adoption.

Step 01: Understanding the rationale for cloud migration

A team of migration specialists from CDWT will evaluate the enterprise’s business, present landscapes, and workloads in order to assist them categorise the motives into three groups.

Critical Business Events or Decisions

Step 3: Organizational Justification

CDWT migration specialists can assist businesses in developing a business case for the cloud. A smooth and uncomplicated migration to the Azure cloud provides depreciation savings, physical asset recovery, operating cost reduction, cost avoidance, soft-cost reduction, staff reductions, and capital expenditure reductions or avoidance.

Step 4: Select Your Initial Project

CDWT assists businesses in selecting their first project by providing them with well defined criteria and a list of desired business results.

The primary function of cloud adoption is to make organisations’ cloud adoption strategies a reality. With the aid of the cloud adoption strategy, CDWT’s team of specialists assists businesses in performing the necessary technical activities to achieve the intended business outcomes.

Rationalize Digital Estate
Here, crucial choices about an asset's rehosting (life and shift) or retirement are made.
Prioritize and define workloads
Prioritized are the first ten workloads that will generate an initial adoption backlog.
Align Assets
Identified are the assets (planned or existent) necessary to support the priority workloads.
Examine Rationalization
The first-step rationalisation choices are improved for adoption-path decisions: Migration or Innovation
Estimate Timelines
Initial estimations are used to define approximate release planning deadlines.

STEP: 01

Prepare the Ambient Conditions

The CDWT team develops the design for the landing zone, which includes network, security, computing, storage, security controls, cloud platform operations, and governance regulations. The plan emphasises the organization’s standard operating procedures for security and governance.

STEP: 02

Expanding the Landing Zone Blueprint

There are three types of factors to consider while designing a landing zone.

Hosting – Decisions about computation, storage, networking, and databases to offer hosting alternatives in the touchdown zone. blueprint
Fundamentals of Azure – These are the fundamental building elements for arranging cloud-based resources.
Governance Considerations – Implementation of governance principles at each landing zone

Step 1: Intuitive choice and creativity using the 6Rs

Several cloud-native features might be advantageous to older applications when the system is upgraded to their benefit. CDWT facilitates selection among the renowned 6Rs. What exactly are they?


The organisation abandons its on-premises software licence and migrates to the cloud-based version of the same software, repurchasing the licence.


Identifying the apps and current workloads to be transferred and lifting and shifting them to the cloud environment is the purpose of this step.


This procedure employs a similar technique to rehosting platforms and apps. Nonetheless, adjustments are done to guarantee that the platforms operate properly on the Azure cloud.


To prepare existing on-premises apps, databases, and workloads for cloud migration, the codebases are drastically redesigned.


This entails identifying duplicate apps or platforms that are producing needless strain and driving up operating expenses. They may be decommissioned and replaced with a version that is more cloud-friendly.


Businesses may choose to keep certain old, on-premises apps if they offer excellent performance and are integral to mission-critical initiatives.

Maintaining a well-managed cloud infrastructure requires strict adherence to governance/compliance standards.

Document business risk and risk tolerance
Define policies and develop procedures for monitoring infractions.
Monitor costs and establish cost responsibilities
Make every attempt secure by design
Enforce identity and access policy with the correct RBAC
Drive and emphasise consistency and uniformity
