Softcat's Cloud Assessment Service helps you to understand your current IT estate's suitability for a potential move to the public cloud. We have two assessment services, each offering a different level of depth.
Our "Standard Cloud Assessment" is tool-led and gives you a high-level illustration of your IT estate's appearance on the public cloud. Our consultant-led "Advanced Cloud Assessment" delves deeper by leveraging the knowledge of our Cloud Technical Experts. Whatever your journey, we will support you in taking the next steps, find out more below.Download our service overview
Both our Standard & Advanced Assessments use industry-leading assessment tooling to complete a detailed analysis of your IT environment. They uncover everything from the suitability of workloads for migration, to their dependencies, the utilisation of the infrastructure, and their likely running costs once migrated.
Our Advanced Assessment offers you the experience of Cloud Technical Experts who can ensure each workload’s most optimal migration path is identified rather than a pure lift and shift approach.
We understand that the needs and complexities of your business are specific to you. For this reason, our Advanced Assessment provides Cloud Technical Experts who will take time to understand your organisation’s exact requirements to make sure our approach works for you.
We know there is much more to a transformative project or programme than can be addressed by tooling alone. Because of this, we make sure that we provide you with up-to-date advice and guidance.

Our Assessments are designed using best practices, learnt through our strong relationships with Microsoft and Amazon Web Services, and our real-world experience. As with everything we do, we take time to build a solid relationship with you, so that we can thoroughly understand your environment, business objectives, expected outcomes, and that we work in partnership through every step of our engagement. This means our experienced Cloud Specialists and Technical Experts understand your organisation’s critical priorities and are able to give expert advice.
