Roca Networks can help you determine your Cloud Readiness
Enterprises are moving to the Cloud because of cost, business growth, agility, scalability, and innovation. The big challenges that companies face when they migrate are: selecting the proper solution and delivery model (private, public, hybrid. PaaS, IaaS, SaaS), mitigation of all risks associated with the Cloud and the consideration of all the privacy, compliance or technical constraints.
So, how can you tell if your business is ready to move to the cloud? We believe there are questions that should be answered before migrating, in order to make the transition successful. Having some general ideas on how the cloud works and how it will best serve you is not good enough. Before the start, a company needs a clear picture and a detailed roadmap for planning, execution, and then for the day to day operation in the cloud.
Before start planning, an enterprise should perform a Cloud Readiness Assessment. This assessment can be performed internally or by using an external company. A third-party consulting company with expertise in Cloud Migration. Although it means investing some capital at the beginning of the project, it will help you be successful with the project and save along the way both on CAPEX and OPEX. Roca Networks can help you with this service based on our over ten years of experience in IT services and Cloud deployments.
Cloud Readiness Assessment
We perform Cloud Readiness Assessment following a detailed checklist, refined in time, based on our expertise and previous implementations. This checklist will let us conclude if your applications and data can be moved to the cloud. We also consider the impact during the migration, in order to be sure that it is minimal for your business operation. In the process, we determine what we need to accomplish and how we will accomplish these goals.
Each application that will be moved to the cloud needs to be analyzed. What are the specific requirements, their dependencies on other applications and the needs concerning communications with the external environment? Security, privacy and compliance are also important aspect to consider when we assess moving your apps and data in the Cloud.
An effective Cloud Readiness Assessment will help a company mitigate the risks of moving to the Cloud. The transition will be easier and all the risks can be identified in advance, allowing for strategies to oppose them. An experienced IT and Cloud company can help with the proper methodology and know-how. Based on the expertise and experience an experience consulting company will know how to plan so that all your business operations will continue to run smoothly during the migration and afterward.
Roca Networks can help you determine the current and future workload needs. What are the needs today and for the future in order to help you choose the best infrastructure? We determine if your current applications and data, as they currently work, will function properly in their new environment and find the adjustments that may be needed to ensure they are fully usable upon completion of the migration.
Concerning the Security and Compliance, we will check all the processes that you follow and all software you will be using for security and regulatory compliance, and best practices. We have helped companies during SOC2 and ISO27001 IT audits compliance both in on-premises and on Cloud infrastructure.
Based on the information obtained during the assessment process, Roca Networks will elaborate on the plan and the steps for effective migration. Timeframes will be established which will state which applications and process will be moved first, second, etc. This is done so that there is no negative impact on company operations.
To be successful, the executive team of the company will be consulted during all the phases of the process: assessment, planning, and migration. Their view and goal set for migration is a key aspect of the plan. Also, their approval must be received before any changes actually take place.
Roca Networks will perform employee training in your new cloud environment. All employees should be made aware of any new procedures that might be in place. Also, they should be aware of new features and benefits they are taking advantage of by using the new system.
