The Path to Growth Starts with Process


The journey to cloud-enabled growth starts by responding to four crucial concerns:

The Path to Growth Starts with Process


The journey to cloud-enabled growth starts by responding to four crucial concerns:

ASSESS AND PLAN
To address how cloud can apply to your organization, we help you define cloud strategies and create a cloud migration plan.

SET UP
To answer how you can be sure that the cloud setup is right for you, we help you build a secure cloud environment based on workload requirements.

MIGRATE
To meet your need to migrate to the cloud smoothly and quickly, we help you transition workloads to your new cloud environment.

MANAGE
Finally, to allay concerns about how you will operate your cloud-based ecosystem, we manage the cloud systems for you.

Blueprints for Application Migration—These pre-tested tools and solutions that can be applied to the building of cloud-first applications, migrating applications to the cloud and SaaS-enabling applications to an on-demand, consumption-based model. They also enable businesses to deploy SAP solutions to the cloud in both production and non-production environments, with performance verified against the same standards that apply to traditional IT infrastructures.

Blueprints for Optimization of Engineering Processes—These continuous-delivery techniques in cloud-based development efforts drive lean, agile and innovative software/application release cycles, in addition to providing a dynamic operations management framework designed to improve service level agreement (SLA) performance in highly distributed IT landscapes. 

 

Blueprints for Driving Business Innovation—Our innovation solutions expedite the transition to cloud-based mobile enterprise applications, including mobile device management (essential for bring-your-own-device strategies). They also address the need for modern collaboration solutions targeted at the modern-day millennial workforce and insights from data derived from disparate sources, delivered through cloud-based solutions.
