Assessment

The assessment begins with Vanuston’s cloud experts assessing your organization’s needs. Our team will analyze your existing system in detail and the service models of the cloud system that resonates with it. The assessment begins from the origin or the department that needs the cloud transition the most. The assessment of the infrastructure and its versions is involved too.
