Digital transformations are underway. Cloud migration strategies are being executed. Finance has recorded savings based on ROIs but cloud provider invoices are challenging cost reduction expectations. Business executives are now asking hard questions: Do we have the ‘right’ cloud platform? Was our ‘like for like’ transformation strategy right? Should we have implemented 100% cloud or considered a hybrid solution? Are we migrating the right applications at the right time? Do we have too many tools? Are we decommissioning in a timely manner? Is there transparency in cloud consumption and costs? Are these my cloud allocations? Do our vendor agreements truly support our business objectives? Did we properly address change management and governance to drive adoption? Our cloud advancement services leverage data-driven solutions to help answer these questions and deliver results leveraging Agile, DevOps and value realization principles. We extend into cloud platforms to extract information to provide visibility into consumption, identify ‘right-sizing’ optimization opportunities, define financial reconciliations based on digital-age total cost of ownership (TCO) and drive governance compliance.
Network and Infrastructure Readiness
‘Lift and Shift’ strategies are costing too much. Infrastructure demand, capacity management, technology refresh, and tool rationalizations are an acute need. Changes in solution and configuration require truthful transparency, careful planning and flawless execution. There is no more margin for error. Our Network and Infrastructure Readiness services deliver management of network and infrastructure change. Our approach bridges the gap between criticality of business demands and technology operational excellence; driven by complete visibility. We assist in managing technology refresh and SDWAN implementation efforts, driving tool rationalizations and ensuring network and infrastructure readiness; leveraging Agile, DevOps and delivery principles.
Business leaders are demanding applications be moved to the cloud, with the expectation of cost reductions, revenue growth and outstanding customer experiences. Cloud migrations are occurring but expectations of speed to value, cost optimizations, revenue advancements and great experiences are not being realized. Our Migration management services ensure that the ‘right’ applications are being migrated at the ‘right’ time. We refine application migration strategies, drive strategy execution, manage application rationalization efforts, remove applications from the environment and govern compliance with migration standards, using Agile and DevOps principles, in a manner that promotes business and customer satisfaction.
One primary objective expected of digital transformations and cloud migrations is driving optimization of cost. Vendor invoices are being received that challenge that very objective. Costs are higher than expected and value is lower than desired. Contracts are not providing protections from risks. Financial transparency (show-back/charge-back) does not exist. Our Cost Management services extend into cloud platforms to extract information to provide visibility into consumption, based on usage and utilization, which will help ‘right-size’ the cloud platform, refine total cost of ownership (TCO) methods to drive cost savings, promote business unit spend allocations and mitigate risks in vendor agreements by providing levers to help control services and spend.
