Define Business Goals and Future Vision

Through a series of interviews, executive meetings and discovery workshops, we will build a comprehensive document that serves as the strategic beacon going forward.

  • Understand stakeholder priorities and concerns, then align on desired outcomes and specific success criteria.
  • Fully document restrictions and requirements that may impact execution, and ensure proper governance is put in place.

Assess Current State

Once everyone is aligned on the goals, our network and cloud architects, software engineers and operational technicians will partner with your team to begin assessing your current environment.
  • Through the use of a variety of proprietary automated tools and methodologies, we will conduct static and dynamic analyses on application inventories, infrastructure capabilities, cloud readiness/maturity and other related systems and processes.
  • We will scrutinize past performance metrics for people, processes and technologies to track the evolutionary trajectory of your systems in order to provide insights into emerging challenges and opportunities.
