Operational Evaluation

Many organisations have moved some or all of their IT infrastructure to a cloud platform. However, due to the ease of moving systems to, in particular public cloud, the process has happened quickly and very organically. Our cloud maturity evaluation ensures that a clear baseline has been establised. The report helps to identify such issues as:

 

  • Operational cloud needs
  • Change management approach
  • Business requirements for lines-of-business and their customers
  • Verifying that the public and private cloud balance is right
  • Evaluating if the private cloud should be in a hosted environment. 
  • The necessary governance and security policies
  • The short and long term cost and business benefit model
  • What resources the internal IT department has and where we can add value
  • How to ensure the right partners and vendors are in place
