Cloud Strategy

Fuel your cloud ambitions with a comprehensive strategy

With organisations hungry to realise the benefits of cloud, a clear strategy provides the focus and aligns stakeholders with business priorities. Our cloud strategy service involves a number of workshops to provide a high-level strategy canvas for cloud adoption in your organisation. With a focus on aligning stakeholders, agreeing on priorities and benefit realisation, you have a clear picture of how cloud will enable your business, and map a path to cloud success that is unique to your organisation.

You could not hope for a more engaged partner. Not just the initial discovery piece of our current state of play, but also where the final destination should be on that journey and throughout the process. They didn’t just deal with us as a partner, they took all of our vendors on that journey. It is absolutely invaluable.

How We Do It

Expert Led Workshops

Our consultants lead workshops with your key stakeholders, working through how your organisation will use cloud along with your business needs, challenges and goals. We overlay this with analysis of your IT portfolio, to co-construct the basis for your cloud strategy.

IT Portfolio Analysis

Working alongside your technical team, we get a snapshot of your IT environment, key applications and infrastructure. We work through a process to categorize these and understand them in the context of your cloud strategy.

Business Readiness

To ensure you have a viable cloud strategy, we review how your people, process and culture need to support the shift in technology, as well as the business benefits you need to support your business case.

Key Actions

Your cloud strategy includes identifying the key actions to ready your organisation for change, preparing your people, process and culture as well as developing the business case for approval and execution of your strategy.

Application Identification

Through our workshops we identify candidate applications for moving to cloud. This includes capturing their attributes, understanding their alignment to your business goals and the method to migrate them to cloud and giving you a clear starting point for migrations.
