Hybrid cloud

Driven by client outcomes

Cloud plays a key role in a comprehensive strategy and can accelerate your transformation journey. This requires careful consideration. Which workloads will thrive on public cloud, and which ones won’t? How will moves be executed? How will data be managed and secured? We help you make the right choices that are specific to your business requirements — and support a long-term strategy.

Why cloud?

Cloud options are pervasive, ranging from software to platform to Infrastructure as a Service. Its popularity is equally ubiquitous. And yet, cloud has core features that make it attractive for several reasons. 

  • Agility — The capacity-on-demand nature of the public cloud allows for easier and less capital-intensive resource adjustments.
  • Stability — Public cloud solutions are continually tested, enhanced, monitored, and supported by providers to maximize reliability and uptime. 
  • Self-service — Organizations have more authority, autonomy, and flexibility, allowing them to initiate changes and steer optimization efforts.

5 Steps to a Successful Cloud Journey

Cloud can offer scalability, automation, easier innovation, and cost savings. But there are many questions to consider in a move to the cloud. Read this guide for a condensed roadmap to help increase your chance of success.

Experience and expertise

Arriving at the optimal hybrid cloud solution is a demanding exercise. For those who have already achieved a hybrid state, questions of optimization, customization, and business value come into play. How do you determine the best mix for your business? And, more importantly, what is the most beneficial and least disruptive model to adopt based on your requirements and objectives? 

We help you modernize and realize relevant business outcomes most effectively by merging methodology, experience, and expertise. Our premise:

  • We work to understand the business. Industry, processes, in-house talent — your business has an inimitable set of features that inform how we work with you, what services make the most sense, and what solutions should be considered. 
  • We work to understand your workloads. Each and every workload or application has distinctive qualities that make it well- or ill-suited for certain platforms. Starting with comprehensive discovery, mapping, and analysis, we help you clarify business value and build defensible cases for platform decisions.
  • We have deep knowledge of technology and platforms. Old, new, and emerging, understanding the technologies and platforms that comprise your solution architecture is our business. As a client-focused integrator, we are free to recommend, build, manage, and support the most appropriate solution.

Hybrid cloud drives transformation

With hybrid cloud emerging as the most popular cloud deployment model, it is also proving to be the most effective in advancing enterprise transformation initiatives, according to a recent Insight-commissioned IDG Research survey of 200 IT executives. See the results here.

In fact, 63% of the survey respondents who reported the most progress in IT modernization use a hybrid cloud approach. Hybrid models are usually faster to implement, more customizable, and often more sensible than cloud-only models that would require a complete overhaul of any legacy infrastructure.

We help clients strategize and implement the right hybrid cloud model to suit workload, IT, and business requirements. This includes devising a detailed plan that is communicated to all stakeholders and built to achieve specific business outcomes.
