Outcomes

Cloud Strategy

is an outline for the role of cloud in an organization, not a plan to move everything to the cloud.

Cloud Governance

is the people, process, and technology associated with your cloud infrastructure, security, and operations. It involves a framework with a set of policies and standard practices. This could include policies for cost optimization, resiliency, security, or compliance.

Migration Plan

the process of relocating an organization's data, applications, and workloads to a cloud infrastructure. Organization may choose to relocate all of its computing assets to a cloud; however, in most cases, some applications and services still remain on-premise.

Delivery

is a comprehensive way to consume technology, including management processes and procedures

Iaas

Infrastructure as a Service – highly scalable and automated compute resources. IaaS is fully self-service for accessing and monitoring computers, networking, storage, and other services. IaaS allows businesses to purchase resources on-demand and as-needed instead of having to buy hardware outright. Examples include AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Compute Engine.

SaaS

Software as a Service – utilizes the internet to deliver applications, which are managed by a third-party vendor, to its users. Examples include SalesForce, Dropbox

PaaS

Platform as a Service - provides cloud components to certain software while being used mainly for applications. PaaS delivers a framework for developers that they can build upon and use to create customized applications. Examples include Openshift, AWS Elastic Beanstock

Deployment

activities that assist businesses to execute a plan for development and integration of new solutions derived from advanced available technologies.

Public

Public cloud is the most common type of cloud computing deployment. The cloud resources (like servers and storage) are owned and operated by a third-party cloud service provider and delivered over the internet.

Hybrid

A hybrid cloud is a type of cloud computing that combines on-premises infrastructure—or a private cloud—with a public cloud.

Private

A private cloud consists of cloud computing resources used exclusively by one business or organization.

Multicloud

Multi-cloud is a strategy where an organization leverages two or more cloud computing platforms to perform various tasks. Organizations that do not want to depend on a single cloud provider may choose to use resources from several providers to get the best benefits from each unique service.

Our Cloud Approach

Cloud solutions enable businesses to move their internal processes to an “automation” state. Cloud is consumed either as a service (IaaS, SaaS, PaaS) or a combination of internal and external systems and processes.
