The right cloud approach can influence the success of your digital transformation efforts

Choosing the right cloud environment can drive operational efficiencies, IT flexibility, and scalability. It can also heavily influence the success of your other digital initiatives, such as artificial intelligence (AI), mobility, big data, and the Internet of things (IoT).

The advent of hybrid cloud models has resulted in a cloud landscape that is challenging to manage, maintain, and optimize. We can help you plan, build, and efficiently manage cloud infrastructure. In an increasingly hybrid cloud culture, we help to cut through the noise, implement strategically and quickly, and leverage what you have.

Our cloud services help you react quickly to market changes, define workload requirements, effectively manage enterprise workloads, and make regular updates to help future-proof and achieve consistent ROI. Our team can help you find the answers to these cloud questions:

  • What do we want to achieve? How will we measure success?
  • What is our best approach? Public, private, or hybrid? Software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), or contact center as a service (CCaaS)?
  • Which workloads should we move—document management, databases, CRM, storage and backup, inventory and orders, accounting, HR, quality assurance materials, or something else?
  • How will we maintain control of cloud data and systems? How will we ensure privacy, security, and compliance? How will we keep vendors aligned?
  • What’s our timeline, scope, and budget? Are we going to approach this in phases? What are the impacts on our policies, processes, and people? How much training will staff need?

Forrester reports that 49% of enterprises see faster time to deployment as a key reason for migrating to a modern cloud.
