Developing your Cloud Business Case
Whatever your reasons for adopting Cloud, ECS’s experience and strong heritage in enterprise-scale initiatives make it the partner of choice for companies embarking on their Cloud journey.
ECS understand an adoption of Cloud is not without difficulty. Cloud Activate is based around a wealth of exposure to strategic planning, business case development and a deep understanding of Cloud economics, designed to help you identify and mobilise the most effective strategy for quickly delivering value.
Our approach to Cloud Adoption begins with a Cloud Readiness Assessment, spending time (typically 2-3 days) with your team to understand your objectives, proposed Cloud strategy, and business case drivers.
From this initial engagement, we will establish a picture of competencies and skills, including governance and operations elements where appropriate, to create a 360-degree view. Helping you understand where you are now and where you need to be in order to begin a successful Cloud adoption process.
ECS will help you to quickly and effectively:
- Clarify strategic objectives
- Shape your business case benefits and costs
- Establish Proof of Concept/Value Projects
- Identify suitable Pathfinder candidates
- Identify and clarify security, governance & compliance risks
- Outline your target operating model
- Outline your Cloud Centre of Excellence
In order to accelerate results, ECS will work with you to establish Pathfinder projects that can act as an early Proof of Concept. Not only does this act as a proving ground for future Cloud management models, but can also quickly demonstrate value to stakeholders.
The ECS Cloud Activate engagement forms a highly effective platform for the Cloud Integrate and Cloud Migrate engagements. Whilst independent and initiated in a logical order, these services can be delivered together to accelerate results.
