CSC Launches Cloud Assessment Service

Global Service provides tailored Cloud adoption roadmap

Expanding on its current Cloud service offerings, CSC today announced it will launch a Cloud Adoption Assessment Service to help companies across the world identify the right business process and IT services when moving to the Cloud.

CSC's Cloud Adoption Assessment gives businesses a head start in understanding the complexity of the Cloud Computing ecosystem. The new service performs a process-centric analysis of a company's existing technology set-up using a Suitability Scorecard. By focusing on business processes, rather than on infrastructures or architectures, CSC creates a top-down assessment that maps to the company's strategic objectives. Originally developed in the UK, the service will be made available to companies across Europe, Australia and the USA beginning in late November.

The CSC Cloud Adoption Assessment helps businesses reach the right decisions to make the shift to Cloud Computing a successful experience. At the end of a three-week assessment, businesses will receive a tailored Cloud adoption roadmap for the target processes and a high-level benefits assessment. They will also receive an understanding of:

  • How to align their Cloud Computing strategy with their business strategy
  • Which parts of their business are suitable for moving to a Cloud-based delivery model and which aren't
  • How much of each process they should put into the cloud: whether they should retain control in house, but use Cloud-based infrastructure, buy the entire process in as a service, or something in between
  • Which services are enterprise-ready and offer the right levels of security and governance for their business
  • The impact on procurement and what to consider before signing on the dotted line.

In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and cost-effective resources on AWS, coupled with the ability to deliver a minimum set of functionalities that cover the majority of needs – without configuration complexity.
