The Cloud Explained
Talk To A Cloud Consultant
Bernard is the Director at BITS Technology Group who works with clients to plan their IT infrastructure, cyber security and cloud migration. The goal during the first call is to understand your IT environment and business, introduce you to BITS and identify how we can help.
Cloud Migration Process
When moving to the cloud, having a well-thought out plan and change-management strategy is pivotal for a successful transformation. It is important to look at all areas of the business to document current and future state to get a clear picture of requirements and cost. Our detailed report, recommendations and advisory ensures business owners have a clear view of the value gained and outcomes that can be achieved when moving to the cloud.
Steps to a cloud migration:
1. Define business objectives
We meet with you and your team to understand how your business operates in your current IT environment. We identify pain points and areas for improvement to build a business case for moving to the cloud. From remote work enablement to accessing cloud-based apps, our cloud specialist will recommend how to achieve your goals and include this on a high-level strategy.
2. Audit of local services and how they work
Our technical team will create a detailed audit of your IT environment to determine suitability for migration, identify what will be moved and plan a timeline of events. We identify services that could be retired and moved into a PaaS offering (platform-as-a-service), such as Microsoft Azure, and any custom-made tools that require special planning. During this time, your advisor will discuss and document risk mitigation strategies and security policies to give a clear picture of the new environment.
3. Scope of works and project delivery
Your project manager will detail every aspect of your project and introduce you to your BITS team. They will be with you every step of the way as your single-point of contact and liase with your team to execute a smooth migration. At the end of the project, they will loop you in with your technical advisor to review project outcomes and discuss future planning.
and Disaster Recovery
What happens if there is an outage or unforeseen circumstance that prevents you from continuing business as normal? We ask all of our clients this question to highlight the need for a plan in place should disaster strike. To answer this question, we perform an audit of your IT environment to document all of your assets, users, permissions and more. We will then discuss with you your recovery options in terms of budget and up-time requirements to ensure the desired balance is achieved.
