Cloud Readiness Assessment

Cloud Readiness Assessment Are You Cloud Ready?

Crayon's approach to assessing your organisation’s Cloud Readiness is the ideal way to ensure that you are ready to make strategic decisions in the most effective and optimised way.

Cloud Readiness Assessment is essentially a transformation to the cloud. On-premise IT infrastructure can be an extremely complex process. Crayon’s approach is to fully analyse your current status, the people, the process and the technology to deliver a maturity and capability status for your organisation.

Cloud Readiness Assessment How Can Crayon Help?

The People

Essentially we are talking about a considerable change management exercise when moving workloads to the cloud. So, understanding the current operational processes, end user requirements and how key personnel can embrace and adapt this change is important. Cloud transformation requires alignment to business objectives and a clear strategy.

The Process

We look at business and operational processes and the organisation’s ability to change. The processes of moving to the cloud can be complex and the day-to-day procedures are often different. New skills and an acceptance of change are a significant part of any cloud transformation.

The Technology 

The technical portion of a cloud readiness assessment involves understanding the client's existing infrastructure and technical requirements. 

The more detailed a picture we can obtain of the current architecture and infrastructure to help map future goals and objectives, the better the outcome.

  • Review current management processes.
  • Assess current governance and future requirements (Security, policies, processes and procedures).
  • Gain visibility of the current architecture and infrastructure and its dependencies.
  • Understand current software usage, requirements and plan for future software needs.
  • Identify the workloads to be considered for the cloud.
  • Mitigate the chance of poor migrations and deployments by assessing capability, maturity, risk, cost and impact.
  • Ensuring a well planned cloud transformation that optimises the cost, efficiency and includes ongoing management.
