By performing hundreds of cloud transformation, we have developed our proprietary Cloud Adoption Framework or CAF. Our Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF) walks through the cloud adoption process and provides systematic questions to ask during a migration from traditional data centers to working in a cloud-based environment.

Amazon Web Services (AWS), a subsidiary of, offers a suite of cloud-computing services that make up an on-demand computing platform. As a Premier Consulting Partner, Six Nines is one of only a few companies in the world that is qualified to help an organization operate 100% in the cloud.

The Six Nines CAF focuses on 7 key areas:
