HERNDON, VA– Karsun Solutions, the Enterprise Modernization Experts, announced today that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Migration Competency status. This designation recognizes that Karsun Solutions provides deep expertise to help customer’s move successfully to AWS, through all phases of complex migration projects, discovery, planning, migration and operations.
Achieving the AWS Migration Competency differentiates Karsun Solutions as an AWS Partner that provides specialized demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success with specific focus on Migration Delivery and Migration Consulting. To receive the designation, AWS Partners must possess deep AWS expertise and deliver solutions seamlessly on AWS.
“Karsun Solutions is proud to achieve AWS Migration Competency status,” said Kartik Mecheri, Karsun Solutions Co-Founder. “It is a perfect reflection of our work as modernization experts and our team is dedicated to helping companies achieve their technology goals by leveraging the agility, breadth of services, and pace of innovation that AWS provides.”
AWS enables scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology AWS Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.
The Karsun Solutions Cloud Migration portfolio offers clients a full suite of services to develop and host cloud-based applications. Backed by the AWS Migration Competency, its customers may also utilize Karsun’s access to AWS Migration Acceleration Program (MAP) resources.
AWS MAP is a comprehensive and proven cloud migration program based upon AWS’s experience of migrating a thousand enterprise customers to the cloud. The program packages best practices, tools, expertise, financial incentives, and the AWS Partner Network (APN) to make cloud adoption easier. Supporting customers investigating migration solutions, these financial incentives subsidize the three key steps in the migration process (Assess, Mobilize, and Migrate and Modernize). When applicable, Karsun implements these financial incentives as part of its Cloud Runways toolkit which accelerates cloud migration through fit-to-purpose transformation playbooks. These enable incremental migrations which adapt to unique customer requirements and constraints.
The data driven migration approach used by Karsun Solutions assesses the existing integration landscape, identifies future needs and develops future state integration architecture, with a specific focus on harmonizing information across applications. Using a proprietary multi-criteria decision support framework, the platform team performs a robust assessment of the solution identifying key characteristics such as interoperability, flexibility, SLAs and security to make an optimal selection for its customers. The framework also balances private, public and hybrid cloud options based on economics, functionality and security.
In addition to the AWS Migration Competency, Karsun Solutions also achieved the AWS Government Competency designation. It currently serves agencies including the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the General Services Administration (GSA).

Karsun Solutions offers a portfolio of enterprise modernization solutions to federal and commercial clients. Key among these is Karsun’s cloud migration solution, Cloud Runway. Cloud Runway enables cloud first organizations to migrate legacy systems to the cloud. Karsun recently paired its Innovation Center team with one of their federal customers for a large migration effort using Amazon Web Services (AWS).
The customer approached Karsun to move an app to the cloud in order to reduce costs. Critically, the customer also wanted to limit the impact on business lines during the migration. In any of Karsun’s Cloud Solutions offerings, the goal is to leverage the flexibility and agility offered by the cloud to reduce costs. The approach balances private, public, and hybrid cloud options based on economics, functionality, and security. Migration teams use strategic partnerships, like those with AWS, to build cost-effective high-quality solutions.
Beginning the Transformation Process
Karsun’s Cloud Runaway leverages change management best practices. Migration teams discourage customers from building their own platforms in favor of focusing on the assets and processes already available to them. They start by identifying the processes and tools already in use. First, the team implements Karsun’s GoLean methodology. Teams identify daily process performance and health measures prior to migration. These measures are assessed and tracked throughout the migration to observe and mitigate the impact on development teams.
Once teams are actively measuring their performance metrics, tools are paired with similar cloud-native apps. The objective is to support and nurture the processes already in place. Karsun’s partnership with AWS supports the migration team’s efforts to use their own experience to select the most appropriate tools available. Cloud Runway takes a collaborative to this transition. The Karsun Innovation Center pairs one of its teams with the migration team. In bringing this in-house research and development team on board, the migration effort utilizes the latest enterprise architecture solutions.
Combining Karsun’s change management approach with strategic cloud partnerships, the customer was able to quickly migrate to the cloud with limited interruptions to their business lines.
