Application Assessment - Many businesses want to gain the advantages of running applications in the Cloud. But as with so much relating to Cloud, how do you identify what to move, how and where to move it to. And how does this fit into your wider strategic roadmap for cloud adoption?

Working together, we help you to understand your existing application dependencies. Starting with building a clear picture of all your applications, both the knowns and the unknowns. We look at how they communicate. And if they are able to work in Infrastructure, Platform or Software as a Service cloud models.

Our consultants challenge the traditional way of approaching your typical line of business applications. We work with you to re-imagine and re-architect your applications. So they are fit for purpose in both the short and long term.

Our Application Assessment means you avoid the business risks, higher costs and failures of not fully understanding how your applications can deliver a better service to your business.

The right applications. The right cloud.

Ensure your applications are cloud-ready, utilising the latest technology and are aligned to the most cost effective platform. We’ll help you to achieve this. We’ll ask lots of questions and look at your current applications from different perspectives. Our market leading experts will work with you to successfully navigate the available choices for your application transformation.

We’ll produce a comprehensive view of your existing application workloads to determine their suitability for modern cloud computing models. From our detailed research and analysis you’ll gain insight into your application dependencies. We’ll provide heat map insights summarising the risks and complexities of your existing applications

The result will be a clear roadmap to deliver a smooth, successful transition. Moving the right applications to the right cloud environment.

CIOs need to take the business on a journey: you need to build a language that explains to your employees, clients and customers how and why you’re transitioning and then sell that journey to them.
