For some organizations, the decision to migrate from an on premise scenario to a cloud-based technology solution is self-evident, while for others it may not make technical or financial sense. To help organizations better understand potential cost savings, technical benefits, operational improvements and software accessibility, BlumShapiro Consulting has developed a set of assessment tools.
Find out if the cloud is right for you with our cloud migration assessment services
Learn the Benefits of Cloud Computing
The first assessment walks an organization through a series of questions and answers, in accordance with the organization’s specific business needs. The outcome will highlight the potential benefits of a cloud solution for your organization.
Cloud Computing Cost Analysis
The second assessment is a cost worksheet that underscores the hard and soft costs of the various server products on premise and juxtaposes those against the cost of running them in the cloud. BlumShapiro Consulting provides these assessments to our clientsat no charge in an effort to help determine the viability of transitioning these services to the cloud. The cost models are high-level estimates based on standard formulas.
A more in-depth assessment can be conducted for a fee that includes monitoring of server workloads for a 2-week (or longer) period to provide a real-life estimate based on actual server sizing needs. If the result of this assessment shows that moving to a cloud-based platform makes technical and financial sense, BlumShapiro's technology consultants can take the complexity out of moving to the cloud. We offer migration services, training and our BlumPOWER support service to maximize your investment after go-live.
Should the assessment lead to the potential of a cloud based solution, but you want a bit more certainty that it will actually work for you and your organization we offer a cloud jumpstart to help you assess the viability using your systems and your data in a proof-of-concept scenario.
