The reality

Cloud as a business enabler

The operational benefits of cloud are widely accepted. It offers more flexibility, less cost, more computing capacity, applications and services are available on demand and you often have less capital tied up in on-premise systems.

Organisations are striving to create more agile, flexible, secure and cost effective IT platforms to support global expansion. Businesses are virtualising their IT infrastructure to seize the benefits and limitless possibilities that cloud based services can offer.

The problem

Managing the risk to achieve the benefits

While the benefits of the cloud are clear, the concerns are still pressing. How secure will your data be? Will you still comply with regulations once it’s in the cloud? Will your applications perform well enough? Do you have the right skills to migrate to the cloud? Do you know how to make the right choices about what type of cloud is best? And how can you move applications to the cloud quickly but securely, without having to worry about the disruption of migration?

How we can help

Helping you get the most from your IT

Whether through business growth, acquisition, merger or consolidation, infrastructures are constantly changing. And the inefficiency caused by the resulting complexity is a key concern. You need a trusted advisor to guide you on your cloud journey to mitigate risk and make sure your transition is smooth. This is where we can help.

A transformational end to end cloud journey

Our consulting, integration, testing and management capabilities are aligned to a simple three step process, Discover, Transform, Manage, for a complete end-to-end journey.

  1. Discover – get an in-depth understanding of your IT infrastructure. We help you get a clear view of your ‘as is’ architecture which includes how you use cloud services, transformation scenarios and all associated risks and costs. 

We can help you:

  • Understand how you are currently using cloud services and any associated risks or costs.
  • Get a clear view of your current ‘as is’ architecture and how this could be transformed.
  • Get a ‘what if’ analysis showing projected transformation scenarios and likely spend.

We do this through a range of services:

  • With a cloud readiness assessment, we’ll provide an accurate view of your current business architecture and how we can support your future needs.
  • We’ll develop a cloud strategy and plan for transformation by establishing a common understanding of cloud options and how they can benefit you.
  • With application and data discovery you’ll get a complete picture of the data and applications being used across your business and an understanding of how to move them to the cloud with ease.
  • With an infrastructure assessment we’ll introduce the right business processes and support options to ensure the success of your cloud solution. 
  1. Transform - helping you move to a better IT Infrastructure. We help demonstrate the feasibility of cloud transformation, deploy a proof-of-concept, document recommendations for a successful transformation and create a detailed migration plan for a smooth transition.

  • Have a proof-of-concept deployment to document recommendations for a successful transformation.
  • Use the most appropriate and cost-effective migration methodologies and tools.

  • We can design a hybrid solution to integrate cloud and traditional services seamlessly and support your cloud application migration.
  • We’ll help you migrate your workload (server operating system, applications and data) from your current to your target environment, for example, physical to virtual, hybrid migration, or from one cloud provider to another.
