Cloud Strategy

Your enterprise thinks that it might want to move its key applications and data to the Cloud. Now you need to figure out how to get there.

You need the right answers to many questions:

  • In their current state, can my core applications will operate effectively in the Cloud?
  • If not, how do I get them up to speed?
  • Do I refactor, build new, or buy COTS applications?
  • What is involved in refactoring an application to run in the Cloud?
  • In what order do I move my applications and data to the Cloud?
  • Can I afford to move to the Cloud?
  • Do I have the right people and skills internally to manage a Cloud transformation and operate in the Cloud going forward?
  • How do I get my team up to speed by adding the right new skills?
  • What’s the Cloud vendor landscape? Which Cloud platform is right for my enterprise? Which tools should I use for application development and operations? How should I manage my data in the Cloud?
  • How do I manage both my technical team and stakeholders across the enterprise during a Cloud transformation?

At OPTIMOZ, we work with enterprises to build a comprehensive strategy for determining whether, when, and how to move their core applications to the Cloud.

The key elements of the strategy include:

Application Audit – to identify the applications are close to Cloud ready versus needing the most work and, therefore, shouldn’t be moved.
Prioritized Cloud Transformation Plan – to provide a roadmap for moving your core applications to the Cloud.
Financial Analysis – of the costs and benefits of moving your enterprise’s IT infrastructure and applications to the Cloud.
Human Capital Analysis – to identify skills gaps and needs to support a Cloud transformation over a 3 to 5-year timeframe.
Technology Recommendations – to analyze which Cloud platforms, infrastructure tools, third-party components, data management strategies, and software development approaches are appropriate for your enterprise and for each application.
Refactor v. Rebuild Analysis – to determine which applications should be refactored for the Cloud versus being either rebuilt from scratch or replaced with applicable COTS solutions.
