Cloud infrastructure readiness

Cloud infrastructure readiness

Moving your applications to the cloud can be a complex undertaking. Is your business ready?

Even with an experienced IT team, integrating the systems and applications you need to automate provisioning and orchestration of the cloud could be slow. And expensive. A prolonged implementation of your cloud strategy will delay time-to-market and time-to- revenue.

Then again, going too fast can lead to improper cloud choices – including the use of public cloud services that might not be robust and secure.

Without thorough preparation you'll increase the risk of deployment and operation failure.

Success calls for a long-term cloud strategy, as well as immediate action plans.

A move to a cloud environment can be disruptive and complex … but it needn't be that way for your business. To help you, NGXSYS offers a range of cloud readiness services including cloud infrastructure services, cloud integration services and cloud consulting services. This range of capabilities means we're able to provide guidance and support at every step of your journey. It also reduces the time and risk associated with cloud transformation.

We'll review your operations across four critical dimensions of cloud computing:

  • business alignment
  • organisation
  • infrastructure
  • applications​

We enable you to pinpoint any gaps that exist between the current 'as is' state and the desired 'to be' state. Next, we set out a preliminary cloud roadmap that identifies key next steps, based on your requirements.

Our cloud readiness consulting services consist of:

  • an online Cloud Self-assessment
  • a Cloud Readiness Workshop to assist you in shaping your organisation's vision for cloud, and prioritising a set of actions

We can deliver each element as a stand-alone service.

Our cloud infrastructure readiness services are about getting every area of your environment 'cloud ready'. We focus on cloud enablement across the following technology areas:

  • Data centres: Let us help you evolve and optimise your data centre environment to set the stage for a smooth transition to the cloud. We'll work with you to deliver an efficient and agile IT infrastructure; one that enables you to deliver business services that are more automated and responsive than ever.
  • Virtualisation: Making the 'physical to virtual' shift is a critical first step in the journey to the cloud. We'll assist you in virtualising the infrastructure and business applications that run in your data centre.
  • Network: If you've set your sights on the cloud, a thorough assessment of, and appropriate investment in, the network is critical. Ultimately, the user's cloud experience will only be as good as the transport layer. Find out how our performance optimisation services can assist.
