Helping organizations align business goals with cloud technology.
Establishing the role of cloud computing within your organization involves crucial steps in planning and designing your cloud environment. This includes determining what aspects will be managed internally, what will be outsourced, and setting clear service level expectations. It is crucial to consider all stakeholders involved in the cloud effort, including developers, operators, regulators, and users of the cloud services. This comprehensive approach helps to minimize surprises and challenges down the road.
It's equally important to assess how your cloud will integrate with the existing data center environment. This involves evaluating shared management tools, security requirements, compliance regulations, and determining whether your cloud operates as an isolated system or part of a larger network that includes public cloud resources.

Cloud Capabilities

Key steps in Cloud planning & Design
Cloud Service Design

Identify and optimize cloud services, leveraging public resources, setting tiers and levels, and creating a comprehensive "bill of materials" for organizational needs.

Defining Cloud Operations

Optimize cloud performance through defining a reference architecture, addressing performance and capacity planning, and ensuring operational compliance and security.

Cloud Business Planning

Align your cloud with IT and business needs by assessing current and future demand, managing relationships with service providers, implementing service costing and pricing strategies, and ensuring compliance with relevant regulations.

The Cloud Planning Advantage

Strategic cloud planning can save millions, avert project failures, and manage risks. Before diving into technical details, thoughtful consideration of the approach is essential. Common challenges include the demand for "more resources, faster," cost reduction, and controlling unauthorized cloud use. Clear project goals are pivotal, especially when industry-driven initiatives lack clarity. Crafting a well-defined cloud plan, achievable in weeks with the right team, streamlines technology decisions, establishes expectations, and signals a clear green light for implementation.

Who Should Be Involved?

Engage stakeholders from various departments in IT and the broader business early in the cloud planning process to accurately represent their goals and ensure ongoing support. Key stakeholders include the cloud architect, capacity and performance team, network team, storage team, and applications team. While it's essential to consider all stakeholders, the initial cloud design team can start small and strategically expand over time to build and develop the cloud offering.
