One such approach is the cloud. It represents a transition from the classic "making IT" to "consuming IT".
It can be categorised into three basic organisational forms and three service levels: services are obtained from private clouds, public clouds and hybrid clouds in the form of complete software, a platform or infrastructure.
The following criteria are decisive for the success of cloud computing or for the transformation from legacy to the cloud:
- Standardisation of the IT services to be used as a technological framework
- Governance and data protection
- Vendor management
With our Cloud Transformation Service, we support you right from the start, with an analysis of your current situation, SWOT analysis, definition of targets and KPIs and development of a best-fit cloud strategy, up to the implementation of the transformation and migration to the cloud.
1. Sourcing analysis
The current mode of operation is analysed in three cloud stacks: infrastructure, platform and software. Cost efficiency, business requirements, governance, data security and data protection determine the cloud strategy and the goals of the future mode of operation.
2. Definition of the transformation approach
The best-fit technology partner and cloud provider are selected. The delivery and service processes are also optimised for the new role of IT. The result of this phase is the technological and organisational transformation plan.
The transformation plan, including the operational readiness test, is executed as an individual programme within IT during ongoing operations.
