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.
