Create a Cloud Strategy that Drives ROI

Develop and Refresh a Cloud Strategy

What is the best way to leverage cloud capabilities in your company? Align them with your business objectives. We help organizations establish an initial strategy or refresh an existing cloud strategy, including what, who, and how the cloud will drive value.

 

Assess Cloud Readiness

Identify the benefits and risks of expanding in the cloud, learn common strategies, and understand the stages of the Cloud Adoption Framework to inform, educate, and identify where your organization resides in cloud maturity and readiness for your cloud journey.

 

Establish Cloud Governance and Control

Take control of cloud growth and adoption. Establish standards to deploy cloud solutions in an automated, secure, and cost-effective manner. We’ll assess current—and design new—cloud controls and policies as needed to adhere to changing regulations and environments.

 

Optimize Cloud

The rapid expansion of cloud adoption can often lead to underutilized capacity and increased cloud cost. We help you analyze your system usage and architecture to understand if there are opportunities to increase cost, resource, or performance efficiency.

 

Manage Cloud Spend

Juggling multiple cloud providers, various tiers (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS), and chargebacks from your cloud environments? Implement automated monitoring and processes that enable analysis, planning, and optimization of cloud platform spend.

 

Cloud Sustainability

Progress your Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) goals via smart cloud service selection and architecture. We help organizations leverage Cloud ESG data for reporting and gain visibility and control of their ESG impact.

 

Cloud Audit & Remediation

Have a list of audit findings or preparing for a regulatory audit of your cloud environment but don’t have the resources to prepare or respond quickly? We know what it takes to audit a cloud environment and remediate findings to satisfy auditors and regulators.
