Cloud & Data Providers
The Cloud is no longer simply an obstacle to the perfect tan. And it’s no tech novelty, either. More than 80% of enterprises out there already have a hybrid cloud strategy in place. Virginia, there really is a “New Style of IT” and it includes Software Defined Networks, Data Centers and smarter ways to consume the Cloud. Improved performance and greater elasticity within multiple ecosystems are the name of the game.
Of course, all this cloud busting requires companies to adopt a different—and hopefully—thoughtful strategy for their IT planning. Unfortunately, not everyone is buying the measured approach. In many organizations, Line of Business units are going around IT and purchasing public cloud services directly. For them, it’s all about the NOW. They crave speed, dexterity, and the ability to innovate—and often don’t believe IT can respond effectively. Those IT teams, on the other hand, are focused on maintaining a reliable, secure infrastructure—and they are losing control of their corporate data…big time. Enter OST.
Emerging technologies and strategies bring with them a whole host of new risks and opportunities. OST’s top-notch cloud counselors will guide you through complex decisions, review your workload requirements, integration needs and application portfolios, and help navigate the myriad of choices for cloud services. They’ll conduct interviews with application owners and use data gathered from capacity and performance tools to thoroughly analyze your environment—resulting in a prioritized, first-class, cloud candidate list.
Having OST squarely at your side can reduce cost, improve flexibility and enhance performance while maintaining security levels and taking advantage of advancements in automation as well as multi-vendor ecosystems. Of course, like many things in life, a successful IT initiative starts with a solid plan. No substitute for doing your homework.
