Cloud Assessment & Strategy

Overview

In terms of solution architecture and capabilities, the Cloud offers something valuable and unique: a new paradigm for computing that can provide more scalability and flexibility in your application services and IT operations. The Cloud has great potential to meet rapidly growing and changing business needs in a cost effective way.

UST Global’s Cloud Assessment and Strategy services can help you assess the viability of cloud computing for your business, and identify the real benefits you could realize. We take a close look through your portfolio to find those applications that would be most beneficial for cloud computing, assess their readiness for migration, and work out a migration road map designed to obtain maximum benefit from a Cloud transition. from spiraling over budget.

We have tremendous experience helping clients understand and define the key drivers behind cloud computing, including service scalability and flexible capacity handling from IT services to meet fluctuation demands. For example, you may have seasonal or ongoing increases in transactional and data volumes that would benefit from a cloud computing strategy.

Whatever your motivation, our Cloud Assessment and Strategy services will help you determine if cloud computing is right for your organization, enable you to see what criteria determine fit and readiness, and show you how to realize value in the most cost effective manner.

Approach

Our Cloud Assessment and Strategy approach is based on our standard methodology for conducting a complete IT portfolio analysis. We help you define the key drivers behind your cloud strategy and then systematically put each one through a set of evaluation criteria. This is used to profile systems in your portfolio and to structure an evaluation scorecard tailored to the specifics of your cloud strategy.

We take a multi-dimensional approach that looks at the business, operational, technology/architectural, resource/cost, and governance aspects of your systems; this allows us to do an effective risk and feasibility analysis based on a complete picture of your portfolio.

Our assessment will describe what we think cloud computing can achieve for your business and a strategy for getting there. For each component of your portfolio, we determine its suitability for transitioning to the Cloud and its readiness for migration. Our Cloud Assessment Framework enables us to custom tailor a set of selection criteria based on your business priorities, potential business value, environmental requirements, size and scope of migration, and other factors. We are then able to evaluate and communicate our high-level recommendations for each application and service in the portfolio analysis.

Our experience shows cloud computing can bring many benefits, including: greater flexibility and mobility; global usage with scalability and high availability; and reduced costs while simultaneously giving IT more time to focus on business challenges. Our Cloud Assessment and Strategy services can help you realize these benefits with less risk and cost.
