Public cloud has changed many aspects of IT delivery and the recognised leaders in this field continue to invest heavily in functionality and performance.
The key question is whether Public Cloud is right for your organisation at this point. Sometimes the answer is yes. Sometimes it is “not yet”. This can be based on many things such as application performance or comparing cost models.
We have taken many organisations on the journey to the Public Cloud. For some this is a ‘lift and shift’ to Infrastructure as a Service; for others it involves the migration of a specific application or exploiting the features of a particular cloud platform. Benefits range from gains in performance, to the ability to scale for user demand.
Our aim is to present an independent assessment of what it could look like for your organisation. We assess the operational, commercial, cost and organisational implications as well as the security, data protection and Disaster Recovery considerations, which are often overlooked in these types of projects.
We look at the operational and management changes that need to be made to use cloud services.
We uncover the business and IT reasons that are driving the change you want to make.
We use reviews and SWOT analysis to assess your cloud readiness.
We analyse the implications for security and compliance for your organisation, users and partners.
We whiteboard scenarios and architectural overviews, to demonstrate what the future state might look like.
The result is an optimal roadmap for cloud adoption through a high level review of which business and IT assets are most suitable for migration.
