Making software migration to the cloud easy

As organizations adopt cloud-based software and infrastructure, Livingstone has developed cloud services that deliver value at every stage of your cloud journey. Livingstone’s Cloud Services help you plan to move critical software and infrastructure to the cloud, monitor the migration and then optimize consumption and costs in the cloud…

  • Optimizing on-premises licensing
  • Identifying key candidates for cloud migration
  • Tracking the move from on-premises to cloud
  • Optimizing visibility and cost of software and infrastructure in the cloud
  • Providing a single view of ‘hybrid cloud’ consumption
