We want to move our existing system running on aix/Oracle with BWA to AWS/Windows/MSSQL. Please let me know if someone has done the migration and what are steps performed to remove BWA. Steps both from Basis as well as BW side

When you move towards BWoH you can follow the DMO procedure.
see more Information here -
and - SAP First Guidance – Using the new DMO to migrate to BW on HANA

If nothing special was done with the BWA, the DMO procedure will simply deactivate the BWA

Moving from Oracle to MSSQL will make the BWA not obsolete, only a HANA migration can do that.
Furthermore Oracle and MSSQL are two different DB setup which will make you target system possibly slower even a BWA would be attached

So in your case, I would review the decision and moving to Cloud will not make anything easier
