Cloud Readiness Assessment Chart a new course for your IT environment with a cloud readiness assessment. Regardless of your level of cloud migration readiness or the type of cloud deployments you already have, a cloud readiness assessment can chart a new course for your IT environment. We take into consideration your technology, people and business strategy and tailor a public, private or hybrid cloud environment specifically for your organization. Cloud experts, at your service You have a lot of choices when it comes to cloud infrastructure. Maybe the idea of getting started with your cloud journey is daunting and you don’t know where to begin. Or maybe it seems easy enough to get started with a public cloud service provider like AWS, Azure or Google: create an account, enter a credit card number and follow a few steps to turn up an environment. But multiply that by 50, 100 or 1,000 times over — and imagine the headaches and costs you’ll ultimately have to answer to. We’ve been doing this for 20 years — and we’ve seen it all. Our certified cloud engineers draw from this experience to provide guidance on the cloud operating model that will work best for your organization. We’re cloud-agnostic, which means we don’t play favourites with a cloud provider, but we always base our recommendations on best practices for cloud design, security and compliance. We start with our consulting services to help you come up with a vision and create a roadmap for cloud adoption. Based on your specific business requirements and workloads, we’ll collaborate with you to architect the best possible single, multi or hybrid cloud solution to balance agility, flexibility, cost and security — all with white-glove support. How it works By taking a holistic approach in our cloud readiness assessment, we can give you a comprehensive roadmap for your cloud migration process that’s sustainable with an eye toward cloud management and security. Business & IT Strategy Our cloud consulting team meets with your primary stakeholders to understand your overall business objectives, IT strategy and resources. With our multi-cloud platform experience, we have extensive knowledge of available funding programs that can help de-risk your cloud adoption and maximize your investment. Workload Discovery & Analysis We create an inventory of cloud-based applications, infrastructure and network assets, as well as application dependencies. We then look for opportunities to right-size resources based on utilization to optimize total costs. With a clear picture of your inventory, we help migrate certain workloads to the cloud, modernize legacy apps, or retire those you’re no longer using. Target State Platform We build an infrastructure design using the optimal cloud platform(s) for your organization. We can provide a few options for comparison that align with your business needs, budget and pace of cloud migration, taking into consideration your workloads and network, but also the security and compliance requirements that relate to your business. Ongoing Financial Impact A cloud readiness assessment that doesn’t factor in ongoing costs doesn’t paint a complete picture. We include a cost estimate of the future overall cloud spend that accounts for the ongoing run phase of your new cloud environment. Key benefits Clear Path Forward Our experienced architects provide a health check to identify gaps in architectural best practices, security, and cost factors. You can take action on the tasks internally or leverage our team to remediate and initiate a Cloud Launchpad project as a reset for a new path. Cloud Launchpad This streamlined cloud adoption solution is built on years of experience across multiple industries and sectors. Our proprietary solution uses prescriptive best practices and pre-built infrastructure-as-code templates to establish solid cloud foundations. Avoid Costly Refactors Rushing cloud adoption programs commonly leaves technical debt that causes cloud security and scalability problems. We measure twice and cut once to set a course for successful cloud migration and long-term growth. Reduce the Learning Curve We’re here to help empower your team to do better in the cloud. We can help you build the internal expertise and technical experience you need to own, operate and evolve your own cloud environment.
