Delivering the promise of the Cloud

Finding Value in the Cloud

The cloud is everywhere and promises everything to everyone.  Eliminated CapEx and reduced OpEx, unlimited scalability, low-cost secure storage, global reach, and faster development cycles. But actually delivering on these promises requires experience, expertise, and careful planning.  Consider the questions you need to even get started:

  • Which cloud provider should I choose?
  • Do I go with IAAS, PAAS, SAAS or a hybrid model?
  • Which of my systems, processes, and workloads should I migrate to the cloud?
  • Do I ‘lift and shift’, modify or re-architect?
  • How do I staff the new skills required for cloud operations?

RCG can help your company determine the best answers for your unique circumstances.
