AIS Network (AISN), a leading IT services enterprise has offered their Cloud Readiness Assessment Services to help Virginia Based Agencies to move their applications and data to the cloud, as per the latest legal requirements imposed by the recent mandate.
The new mandate as imposed by the Virginia Government requires Virginia based services to move their applications and data into the public cloud.
AISN Assessment Services Help Virginia Agencies Move Data To Cloud
ASI Network took the opportunity of the 8th of October, 2018 to step in and offer their services to Virginia based companies and get them their cloud readiness assessment reports before the deadline established for submission of aforementioned reports.
The primary purpose of the report is to determine which applications and data can be safely moved to the cloud to provide optimal support to business while least hampering ongoing and recent future operations at the same time.
The new gubernatorial mandate, Executive Order Nineteen (EO19, issued on Sept. 17), requires Virginia agencies to shift their locally hosted information technology systems and services to cloud-based platforms over the next few years.
The agencies have been tasked to submit cloud readiness plans to the Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VITA) later this fall. Starting in January, agencies must identify which resources will be needed to migrate to the cloud.
AISN has had an ongoing relationship with the Commonwealth of Virginia and VITA since 2012, and during that period, we have been moving applications, data and workloads to the cloud for dozens of agencies. We strongly support EO19, which is intended to advance cloud readiness among all Virginia agencies, not just the largest ones

The AISN cloud readiness assessment can evaluate a plethora of different factors for the companies involved and save them a lot of time in the process.
The evaluations include the continued use of dedicated hardware, development of a formal process to evaluate cloud infrastructure and services, and ensuring compliance with VITA services and infrastructure policies.
Moving to the cloud can be complex and there are business risks. AISN’s cloud readiness assessments will provide agency chief information officers with the risk analysis they need to make the best possible decisions about a logical path toward cloud migration
– AISN CEO Jay Atkinson
AISN would be building reports for the percentage of physically and virtually deployed IT system components, cloud readiness status and expected workload, and the required resources to make the companies cloud ready.
Without the aid of AISN, these evaluations and reports would’ve taken a long time of research and guidance. However, with their aid, the businesses can save a lot of time, which can be spent elsewhere instead.
