Migration Acceleration

Migrate to the cloud with confidence.

As an AWS Migration Competency Partner, you're in safe hands.

The AWS Migration Competency recognises fourTheorem as an AWS partner with demonstrated technical expertise in delivering customer cloud migrations. This designation allows us to access migration support available under the AWS Migration Acceleration Program (MAP) on your behalf. 

MAP is a proven cloud migration program designed to help move workloads to AWS quickly and easily, in a cost-efficient manner – with AWS funding available at each phase of the migration process, as well as significant discounts for several years after.

Migrating to AWS unlocks efficiencies and operational benefits - but the process can be long, complex, and expensive.

MAP can accelerate your organisation’s cloud migration and modernisation journey through outcome-driven methodology, tooling, and financial incentives.

We follow a three-step approach to migration that uses proven frameworks to reduce the risk and cost for you.

A serverless architecture for high performance financial modelling

RenaissanceRe is a highly differentiated reinsurance business that combines the best of proprietary analytical tools with the domain-expertise of their people in delivering value for their clients and stakeholders. In 2020 RenaissanceRe decided to stop investing in their on-premises cluster, and to re-imagine the system on AWS. 

fourTheorem are now fully engaged across their tech teams collaborating, architecting and helping to build exciting serverless solutions, in tune with their desired pace of acceleration. Reducing the run time of one process from 10 hours to 1 hour demonstrated the true potential of serverless AWS – the removal of the artificial ceiling the monolith represented, unleashing the power of the cloud.
