Cloud computing is fueling a transformation of IT, dramatically improving agility and enabling organizations to efficiently deliver services that maximize business value. The question facing executives today is not whether to use the cloud, but how to maximize its benefits.
IT executives are defining cloud strategies to leverage the flexibility, scalability and economy of private, public, and hybrid cloud models, while still leveraging the security, efficiency, and control of today’s enterprise data centers. To deliver such a cloud strategy, you must address fundamental assumptions about how IT is managed, delivered, and consumed. Ask yourself some key questions: “What is the role of service providers in our hybrid cloud strategy? What is the best cloud delivery model for our key application workloads?” You need a plan that aligns your key applications with the cost, risk, and agility benefits your business stakeholders expect.
With the EMC® Cloud Advisory Service, you can achieve the right mix of private, public, and hybrid cloud delivery models for your key application workloads. EMC provides a cloud application strategy that is specific to the needs and activities of your business, recognizes your current IT capabilities, and understands how service provider partners can provide complementary services to your own IT infrastructure. We also help you execute your strategy using an innovative, tool-based approach to workload analysis that places workloads in the optimal private, public, or hybrid cloud model by analyzing your business and technology requirements. Service deliverables include:
- Business application alignment—maps selected applications to associated business processes to validate relevance and service levels for the business activity, using the EMC Planning Studio toolset to assure a consistent evaluation across your business
- Application suitability assessment for cloud—examines your business requirements for selected application workloads and determines whether they are best delivered through a private cloud, public cloud, or legacy IT environment, using the EMC Planning Studio toolset
