Accelerate Digital Transformation
Enterprises large and small are adopting cloud platforms to enhance agility, achieve efficiencies and reduce time to market as part of their digital transformation initiatives. However, the benefits don’t happen overnight; a clear adoption roadmap is required that maps the business objectives to an iterative deployment of solutions – what delivers the right balance between flexibility and security? How does the adoption and migration strategy minimize disruption? How can investments be future-proofed?
APPICATION MIGRATION .
Maximize your cloud investment
The promised benefits of the cloud are straightforward – move faster, scale effectively, spend more efficiently. Once the decision has been made, the roadmap developed, the PoCs and Pilot efforts executed and the production cloud deployments optimized, you need to deploy services on that cloud – the new, cloud native services, and the legacy applications. The challenges to address prior to application migration, however, are numerous – is it economically viable, how extensive are the refactoring and re-architecture requirements to cloud native, can I “lift and shift”, and most important – can I manage and operate these new environments?
CONTAINER AND MICROSERVICES.
Embrace Cloud Native Elastic Solutions
Container technology, such as Docker, has revolutionized how organizations can package and deploy applications with increased efficiencies. Container orchestration systems like Docker Swarm and Kubernetes provide management of containerized applications at scale, supporting the implementation of applications as configurations of independently-scalable services. All of these technologies, and the microservices architectures built with them, are under rapid development, with significant advances being made from release to release.
Organizations making significant investments in containers need to develop expertise in these enabling technologies to ensure that applications and supporting infrastructure can take advantage of technology improvements. Taking the time to develop skillsets and processes around a robust, reliable, and flexible toolchain is critical before pursuing a container-based deployment model. Monitoring and alerting systems become more important than ever with workloads that are exponentially larger.
Digital Transformation of a business does not start and end with the technology teams. Cloud Source understands that for many organizations, embracing DevOps requires a re-evaluation of a wide range of IT systems, processes (Business and Technology), and staff skillsets, so that change can be implemented holistically. Only by aligning culture, practices, and technology will an organization maximize the feature velocity and quality from the development and operational teams..
