Cloud computing is a significant evolution. It is changing the way we think about how we deliver our computational infrastructure to end users.

  • Identifying the business drivers behind cloud computing initiatives,
  • Understanding your organizational readiness for cloud computing,
  • Establishing an open standards-based infrastructure, and
  • Developing a comprehensive roadmap for making cloud a reality for your enterprise.
    • building the business and technical case for cloud,
    • developing a strategy around open source standards, products and tools that aligns with your business goals,
    • assessing organizational and infrastructure readiness,
