Like many businesses, you’re considering the merits of moving IT services to the cloud. Bear in mind that migration to cloud computing doesn’t happen overnight. It will be a journey – and one that’s different for every organisation. Adoption models for cloud services vary, but most organisations need to start by making changes to the historical architectures that have allowed for tight integration between IT elements. Here, many new complications emerge. IT functions need to be separated to allow them to be replaced by services from cloud providers. Virtualisation is a fundamental − and necessary − first step to cloud computing, an undertaking that requires careful planning and delicate execution.
Then there’s the array of different cloud models to consider. Public, private or a combination of both? Whatever the pace of your journey, these are decisions you can’t afford to take in the dark.
For businesses just setting out on their cloud journey, Dimension Data offers a range of
Cloud Enablement services: advisory and consulting services to help clients understand cloud readiness, governance, IT optimisation, data centre consolidation and technology architecture.
