Business Process Transformation for Cloud Readiness
For success in the future, today’s approach needs to be Multi-Cloud. This means digital processes functioning on future-ready Cloud technologies.
With our Cloud Consulting you benefit from a structured approach to the analysis of your IT environment, aiming to identify and develop those areas with Cloud potential. We work closely with our clients to identify what is needed for Multi-Cloud business to become a reality. Based on our findings, we develop and implement future-oriented strategies with powerful solutions.
Holistic 360-degree Approach
Our Cloud Consulting approach includes a detailed evaluation of all parameters which could be relevant to your journey into Multi-Cloud business.
Data security is a key element in this. Critical data stored in the Cloud must be secure. Our Cloud Consulting incorporates a full analysis of your specific data security requirements. Clients receive practical recommendations on how and where to store and manage business-critical data. Working with you, we develop an architecture design on which the structured and cost effective migration of software applications and Cloud services will be based. We evaluate existing IT components as well as processed data and review their integration into the IT landscape. Great care needs to be taken at this stage, as the technical setup and processes of local IT environments do not always lend themselves to a seamless transition to a highly-standardized Cloud environment. In order to assess the changes necessary for Cloud integration, we conduct a detailed and thorough analysis of all interfaces.
Customized Cloud Solutions
Based on your company’s goals, we develop a tailored strategy, which is executed by selecting and implementing those Cloud solutions most appropriate for both your existing IT infrastructure and your strategic business model.
Throughout the implementation of your strategies and the transformation of your processes and applications, we are at your side evaluating possible approaches and supporting you as your business Cloud migration takes place.
Our clients benefit from our experience in planning and implementing current migration strategies, such as the Lift & Shift approach used for existing applications, the transition of customized applications while retaining their basic structure, or moving updated legacy applications into the Cloud. As well as this we are always ready to use our expertise to support you in launching new native, cloud-based developments or in implementing Saas solutions to replace existing applications.
