Cloud Services

 

Organizations are embracing 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.

We view cloud as a paradigm that enables organizations to operate more efficiently, while also further enables a service-based IT delivery model, resulting in improved responsiveness to business needs.

Cloud computing as a style of computing provides the following benefits:

  • Standardized, IT-based capability provided by off the shelf or commoditized hardware components, use of large scale virtualization beyond processors – storage, core applications and development platforms
  • Consumption-based billing on the basis of actual usage, and pay-per-use economics, for very small contract durations
  • Scalability
    • From the customer perspective: The ability to flex and add capacity on the fly
    • From the provider perspective: Build in elasticity and scale on demand
  • Flexible access models, such as web-based interfaces for administrative and usage needs, provide ease of consumption as a key differentiator

Client Challenges

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
  • Developing an organizational change strategy in support of, and aligned with, cloud adoption
  • 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
