Cloud strategy

A cloud strategy determines the best path to the cloud for your business, as well as best practices for leveraging it in the initial phase and beyond.

A cloud strategy determines the best path to the cloud.

A cloud strategy tells you how you can and should take advantage of cloud services in the long run. The starting point for a cloud journey is usually some change in the company’s operating environment, at which point the transition to the cloud and the new opportunities it offers become topical. You should have a strategy for moving to the cloud when your current environment becomes outdated, and preferably earlier.

A cloud strategy is always based on an understanding of business needs. For us, the cloud is not an end in itself. Instead, we want to get the most out of it for business. IT is not an isolated area, separate from other business activities: its objectives should be in line with business goals. However, added value comes from combining business challenges and needs with technological understanding. We help clients find the best technical cloud solutions for business.

4 phases

Building a cloud strategy in practice

Building a cloud strategy starts with mapping the current business needs and technology landscape.
Choosing the right cloud plaform is an important part of the cloud strategy.
  1. Reviewing the current state is one of the cornerstones of creating a cloud strategy. It includes a review of the current state of IT as well as a thorough analysis of the benefits that the cloud could have for the company and which benefits get prioritized.
  2. A migration roadmap allows for a smooth and smart journey to the cloud. What systems should you move and implement in the cloud and when? What systems should you not move at all? A comprehensive analysis of the current architecture is an important part of compiling the plan.
  3. An operating model defines how cloud environments are managed sustainably. When selecting an operating model, we must take into account data security and continuity of services, as well as cost efficiency.
  4. The choice of a cloud platform depends on both the technical environment and the intended use. Usually, a single cloud platform is chosen, but a multi-cloud implementation may also make sense, especially if the current environment already includes cloud solutions. We always select the best public cloud based on the client’s needs.
