The Amazon Web Services cloud is powerful! — Architecting and operating enterprise IT is a demanding expert job!
More and more IT experts agree that bringing both these worlds together is a mandatory next step to secure the competitiveness of their enterprise in the quest to re-invent their business models through digital transformation.
Defining a cloud strategy for a global organization with demanding technology and business requirements is not an easy task. But wherever you are in your journey to cloud, we are here to guide and support you. — Are you working on one of the following challenges?
Our team's cloud experience dates back to 2007, when Werner Vogels first started to promote the advantages and possibilities of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). We immediately saw the potential and applied our SAP and enterprise lens when exploring and testing the major clouds for powerful enterprise class workloads. For example, members of our team were among the first to deploy SAP HANA on AWS. — This experience and passion for cloud we excitedly share with all our prospects and customers.
Our customer advisory engagements normally last from a few days to a maximum of one to two weeks. And despite - or maybe because of - this focused approach, we jointly work through your cloud requirements, questions and concerns, define a first cloud transformation blueprint for your architecture, and frequently also implement and deploy key cloud services of the to-be architecture with your team.
We see distinct patterns and challenges facing our customers. Based on those, we defined following Ocean9 Cloud Advisory packages:
Deciding on a strategic cloud provider for your enterprise is not an easy task. Not only do you have to assess native capabilities of the cloud offering, but you also have to assess the ability and complexity to implement higher level capabilities related to enterprise class workloads, like High Availability, Disaster Recovery, Security and Data Protection.
To make matters more challenging, hybrid cloud is another high priority for many large enterprises. You may want to integrate existing company assets with public cloud. Or you have to follow internal governance principles that do not allow a single vendor relationship for something as important as your infrastructure.
This advisory package will assist you in defining a specific cloud strategy for your company and is highly tailored to a customer’s situation, concerns, and goals. And despite the compact timeframe, the final deliverables include a strategic architecture and roadmap combined with business cases and concrete proofs of concept – such as a bill-of-services as well as provisioned cloud services – to get started.
Normally 1 week onsite; 2 weeks for complex requirements
Hands-on advisory package turning a customer’s defined Digital Transformation strategy and especially use cases into a working cloud Proof-of-Concept (POC) in the most suited public cloud like AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud considering a customer’s preferences.
