Cloud computing has matured enough to the point where many businesses can deploy their IT services more effectively and more efficiently in a cloud infrastructure. The real innovations are the shifts in how IT is operated and consumed. Cloud represents a shift of IT from an asset model to a service model.
We have found the process of business transformation into cloud technologies is best done in two broad phases: cloud enablement assessment and cloud enablement.
Cloud Enablement Assessment
The definition of cloud is different to every organization, and there is certainly no “one-size-fits-all” cloud solution. Why do you want to go there? What are your needs and the potential benefits? What are the obstacles? What are your barriers to getting there? Is the cloud secure? We can help you find the answers with a Cloud Enablement Assessment.
It’s the first and most important step in your journey to the cloud.
Our team of experts will assist you on board to address the need and impact analysis based on your current IT infrastructure by addressing following:
How does cloud computing fit with your business objectives as it relates to internal resources, organizational structure, compliance, security and other variables?
What is the financial impact of the cloud, and what are the costs, risks, pros, and cons in comparison to your current infrastructure, storage and operational model?
What application interdependencies exist and how will those applications behave if they are moved out of the data center?
How will users access applications that are moved to the cloud, and do you need to evaluate new access mechanisms?
How will your IT team manage the operational side of the cloud, such as integrating with cloud providers, monitoring applications, and retiring underutilized ones?
Infrastructure optimization is foremost step to realizing the benefits of cloud computing, creating the foundation upon which a business can execute its IT strategy.Infrastructure optimization encompasses standardization, virtualization and automation. These three key building blocks provide an efficient, scalable and reliable IT service delivery platform. Cloud enablement, is an ongoing operational model that incorporates orchestration, correctly organizing teams, and a shift toward thinking about platforms.
Orchestration is the process of coordinating multiple tasks needed to deploy or support an IT service. Automation, which is part of infrastructure optimization, focuses on creating a repeatable process for a single task, such as provisioning a virtual machine or deploying a database server. Orchestration builds on automation to enable the deployment of complex application environments including servers, load balancers, proxies, databases, caches and other components of application stacks.
Our four-phase approach is an impartial framework that results in completely unbiased recommendations and deliverables so you can make informed decisions going forward. The engagement will leave you with a clear definition of cloud for your organization, as well as criteria to use when evaluating cloud providers. We can even help you take that final step by creating RFP documentation for the cloud providers you are evaluating.
