Week 3:

Coursera AWS Fundamentals Specialization

Enroll in AWS Fundamental Specialization



Week 3 focuses on the mobilize phase of the migration. This week, you learn about the methods and tools that are useful for building a refined migration plan. We discuss getting your team and applications ready for migration, look at services like AWS Application Discovery Service, and cover how the AWS Partner Network (APN) can help you establish your migration plan. To close this section, you learn about AWS Management and Governance, AWS Control Tower, and AWS Landing Zone—tools that can help you prepare for the actual work of migrating applications while also prioritizing security and dependability.
