Why Discovery & Assessment Lite

In our 4–6 week Discovery & Assessment Lite program, Align helps companies gain an accurate picture of their internal infrastructure. Our team outlines a plan and process to modernize your IT, rationalize your data center portfolio and determine what you can migrate to the cloud.
Our goal is to quickly give you a snapshot into your infrastructure through various reports and share best practices to help outline and jumpstart a broader transformation program. To get started, we focus on a “sample set” of approximately 200–250 assets.

Step One

Pre-Project Scope of Work Call
  • Define client goals, timeline and project scope
  • Gather available client inventory & asset data
  • Review program schedule & identify a point of contact from the client side


Step Two

Discovery & Assessment Lite Audit

  • Conduct a non-intrusive physical inventory on-site (we do not touch assets or trace connectivity/cabling)
  • Apply agentless monitoring tool to perform logical discovery of virtual servers and current and unknown software for the sample set
  • Evaluate collected data and develop management report of the 200–250 discovered assets for the client presentation

The Management Report includes:

  • Physical & Logical Inventory Discovery Report (validates accuracy of physical & logical assets, EOL, installed software, cabinet elevations)
  • Cloud Migration Compatibility Recommendation
  • Demonstration of process and tools for how to right-size your infrastructure with a hybrid solution leveraging the cloud

This assessment includes 1 data center with 200–250 assets (i.e., server, storage, network, physical/virtual assets). Client must agree to security requirements and provide us a POC so we can install non-intrusive logical discovery tools.
