Cloud Readiness Assessment
These days, every business is consuming Cloud Services in some way or another. In many cases IT departments don’t know the full extent of this utilisation, and therefore don’t fully comprehend the risks or opportunities that Cloud services pose their business. For example, how many staff in a typical business share and sync files with consumer Dropbox accounts? Answer: A lot (DropBox claim 500 million users). In this example, controlled business files could be sync’d with every computer and device where the user has signed into a dropbox app, such as their personal phone perhaps, their family computer, their iPad, the list goes on. Staff clearly enjoy the flexibility that this approach provides, but they are often oblivious to the significant security risks. At Peninsula IT Services, we can help you to provide functionality just like this, but with the controls, audit and reporting that are missing from using typical consumer Cloud Services.
Many businesses still have large investments in IT hardware in their office or own data centre. And every few years, server hardware needs to be refreshed to keep pace with the business, at significant cost. Peninsula IT Services can provide an assessment of the readiness of these systems and servers for migration to the Cloud. When done the right way, these server migrations to the Cloud can create significant savings opportunities, avoiding the big investment in server hardware every few years. Enabling our customers to align their IT expenditure with their customer demand and revenue.
Our Cloud Readiness Assessment includes:
- Analysis of your existing IT infrastructure, servers and desktop PC’s
- Cost estimates for running the same infrastructure in the Cloud
- Create a customer roadmap for cloud migrations based on business impact and business risk
If our Cloud Readiness Assessment demonstrates that a Cloud migration makes sense for your business, at Peninsula IT Services we can help you take the next step and provide migration skills through our Cloud Migration and Data centre Transformation service to assist with the move.
