The Cloud Advizer™

Are you ready for the Cloud?

There’s a lot of talk about clouds today. The ability to utilize technology resources in a scalable and abstracted fashion where software and information are available to users as an on-demand service offering is compelling. It is also complex. There are numerous components that must be considered in order to ensure a successful cloud implementation, and every company looking at cloud technologies is unique. It takes a thoughtful plan—and the expertise to deliver.

Clouds Are About More Than Just Virtual Servers

You may already have had success with virtualization or networked storage, but in order to implement an effective cloud infrastructure, you must consider all eight major building blocks of the virtual data center working together as a system. Cloud Readiness Planning from AdvizeX, a Rolta company, is more than a one-size-fits-all boilerplate strategy document, but rather a proven methodology that generates an actionable plan customized for your organization—so you get what you need, when you need it.

Proper planning starts with information discovery before you see a quote or statement of work. Cloud Readiness Planning begins with a Discovery Session where together we:

  • Define the cloud: terminology, goals, and the eight infrastructure building blocks
  • Assess client’s current cloud readiness and desired implementation timelines
  • Establish a three-year plan with actionable steps implementable in phases
  • Plan and execute required engineering tasks and business processes
  • Determine project schedule and scope for products and service engagements

Cloud Advizer™ components include:

  • Service Catalog
  • Service Automation
  • Metering
  • Self-service Portal
  • Cloud Infrastructure
  • Service Oriented

In the enterprise cloud the technical details matter—but so does the business. Balancing these perspectives requires experienced resources that have made clouds work with established vendors such as VMware, EMC, HP, Cisco and others. This proven technical expertise also comes with an eye to the operation and the bottom line. It all starts with a plan. Let our consultants make cloud technology work for you.
