Develop a Cloud Strategy

Standing on the shoulders of your peers gets you to the cloud faster!

The decision to go has already been made. Now the key to a successful cloud strategy is in an effective action plan. Info-Tech has the experienced facilitators and the aggregated data from hundreds of members to streamline developing yours.

Your Challenge

  • Don’t solve – focus on identification of risks. The hardest exercise really isn’t always the most valuable. You don’t need to solve all the problems right now, but to develop a meaningful cloud strategy you do need to identify them.
  • Current state lays the groundwork. There is no shortcut – the best way to identify your risks is through an exhaustive analysis of your infrastructure and a thorough readiness assessment for each of your apps and services.
  • Cloud is not always the answer – and that’s okay! Cloud is about an all-or-nothing proposition. Successful client strategies have included hybrid (public/private), re-platforming of apps, outsourced hosting, and even repatriation of services.

Our Solution

  • Understand what makes the showcased cloud strategies and action plans the best – see how our clients got there.
  • Compare your risk, your IT, and your service assessments against organizations in similar industries and of similar size and current technical situations.
  • Leverage the “in-the-room” experience of Info-Tech facilitators to help you uncover hidden pockets of resistance, unexpected challenges to migration, and anxious concerns about training and job security in your organization.
  • Optimize your efforts by focusing your team’s attention to the highest value deliverable first.
