The US$5.8 billion global ICT solutions and services provider’s cloud-readiness services comprise four elements – Online Cloud Self Assessment, Cloud Readiness Workshop, Cloud Readiness Assessment and Cloud Total Cost of Ownership (TOC).
Dave Hanrahan, General Manager of Cloud Services, Dimension Data Australia, says that the lack of a long-term cloud strategy could result in “costly re-architecture and reintegration measures down the line.”
“Dimension Data brings a rich heritage in building multifaceted enterprise IT and hybrid cloud solutions, enabling organisations to build a cloud roadmap that preserves business agility and operational efficiencies even as their business needs evolve.”
“With expertise in networking, virtualisation, security, data centres, application migration, Software as a Service (SaaS) and cloud technologies, Dimension Data’s team of consultants delivers a cloud roadmap to help organisations realise the benefits of cloud computing more immediately.”
“Moving to the cloud is a complex process,” Hanrahan cautioned.
“There are many aspects to consider such as security, application migration, internal readiness, billing, authentication, single sign-on, and integration with other applications. Even the most sophisticated IT organisations find the process of migrating to the cloud challenging. Leveraging our expertise across traditional IT and cloud services, Dimension Data now offers its clients a suite of consulting services to help them prepare for their cloud journey.”
Hanrahan said the cloud readiness services provided organisations a comprehensive picture of where they stand in their cloud deployment cycle while also providing a long-term strategy for migrating key applications to the cloud.
He said Dimension Data also offered comprehensive consulting services assisting clients to develop a complete framework for their organisation’s transition to the cloud.
