You are almost certainly undertaking a Digital Transformation of some kind, you know that your organisation is driven by data and every day you are expected to do more with less.
One of the common denominators of all these pressures is the adoption of cloud-based solutions. Cloud offers the potential of greater flexibility, enabling lean DevOps approaches, massively reducing capital outlays and increasing the velocity of solution delivery.
And yet Cloud Adoption is not a panacea. Simply take your current landscape and drop it into the cloud will more than likely increase your challenges rather than reduce them. Costs would be likely to rise and new challenges in terms of security and management would also be likely to increase.
The adoption of Cloud is an opportunity for business transformation rather than undifferentiated heavy lifting.
Where are you on your journey of Cloud Adoption?
Are you at the business case stage, proof of concept, someway down the path or at benefits realisation and management? Wherever you are on your journey we have here to help you based on experience and proprietary accelerators.
We have a dedicated team of cloud experts as part of our Cloud Practice analysing, comparing cloud providers, tools provided by them and advance in technologies which would benefit our current and future customers.
