Cloud Advisory

Transform Your Business In The Cloud

The Cloud

Speed, Agility

The business reasons for making the move to the cloud are compelling: cloud solutions can enhance business agility and speed up time to market, reduce costs while increasing process efficiency and improve both the user and customer experiences. But does your organization have the expertise, bandwidth and resources to take on a cloud transformation and ensure its success?

Successful adoption of an architecture that leverages the capabilities of the Cloud infrastructure requires a transformation of the current human resource skills sets, processes and technologies.

SYLVERSYS assists you in understanding cloud computing and yield the benefits and cost savings from cloud based services.

The focus of our cloud advisory services is about what you do with cloud computing.

Cloud Computing

Scalable, Responsive, Cost Efficient

Organizations are flocking to the Cloud to benefit from the scalability, responsiveness and cost efficiencies that Cloud Computing offers. The transformation to a Cloud environment is a significant enterprise undertaking that has a tremendous impact on the way IT organizations operate and the way services are delivered to business users. Successful adoption of an architecture that leverages the capabilities of the Cloud infrastructure requires a transformation of the current human resource skills sets, processes and technologies.

The key business challenges to successful cloud adoption include the following:

  • Strategic balancing of fiscal realities of current infrastructure costs, capabilities and lifespan v/s the on-demand cloud computing based solutions
  • Assessing the technical capabilities or constraints and associated business requirements tied to private, public or hybrid cloud solutions
  • Managing vulnerabilities in cloud information systems leading to potential information security risks, fraud and/or revenue loss
  • Ensuring the availability of the required skills and resources to efficiently implement cloud solutions
  • Meeting complex compliance requirements and government regulations around storing, accessing and sharing data
  • Building a comprehensive migration strategy to ensure maximum business value, including guidance on what workloads to migrate to which type of cloud computing and for what type of cost and service level or support model

SYLVERSYS is here to accompany your business to go through these challenges.

Value

Why use it

For many organizations, finding the right cloud solution to meet the ever-changing needs of the business while also ensuring planning, implementation and adoption success can be a daunting undertaking.

There are six factors that will drive your migration to the cloud, three of which driven by the business and three of which driven by IT.

  • Growth: Driving business growth might include increasing sales, market share or even productivity so that you can do more with the same amount of resources.
  • Efficiency: Improving efficiency generally focuses on streamlining processes to get work done faster.
  • Experience: Customer experience is critically important in today’s digital environment, and this experience extends to both external and internal customers.
  • Agility: Increasing agility helps IT change and scale at a faster pace in order to keep up with demands from the business. Making IT more agile can also impact the agility of end users.
  • Cost: Often confused with efficiency (which can lead to cost savings), cost can encompass reducing the IT footprint, reducing technology costs and restructuring capital expenditures for IT.
  • Assurance: Assurance passes IT responsibilities like disaster recovery and protecting against security breaches and data center crashes onto a dedicated third party provider.

At SYLVERSYS, we will help you determine your drivers and define your cloud strategy.
