Implementing hybrid cloud successfully is a major challenge facing IT organizations today. The goals include maturing technical capabilities while achieving better business outcomes: to gain new efficiencies, mitigate risk, speed time to market, and to better understand and control costs. It sounds great, and it is if it is done correctly.
In every organization there are some number of applications which have been recently designed and are cloud-ready or cloud native from Day 1. They may have always been in the cloud, if not, it's generally a straight-forward process to containerize and/or push those applications into a public cloud
The question becomes what to do with the rest of the application and infrastructure portfolio and where to begin? How do you determine which applications have a positive business case to move into a cloud-ready state? How do you determine the level of effort to move the applications? How do you discover the associated infrastructure and software assets associated with the applications to be migrated? What do you do with those assets? What IT investments can be rationalized? There are a number of people, process, and tooling considerations to be made and chances are if you're moving towards hybrid cloud you're also on the "DevOps" and Agile Transformation journey.
Keyva is here to help. Leveraging our suite of tools and processes we can quickly assess your application environment and give you a visual representation of those applications which can be most readily moved. We can help you assess the business impact and benefit of doing so, tie that to the underlying infrastructure and software assets and build a business case and roadmap to move 1 or 100 applications sustainably into a hybrid cloud environment.
When paired with our Agile Transformation for Infrastructure and Operations, we partner with you further to rationalize the processes, tooling, and team structure to ensure each step of your journey provides incremental value while minimizing cost and complexity.
