Cloud Services

Business survival today depends upon IT innovation. The promise of the cloud is for the delivery of ‘service anywhere’ – services at the right place, at the right time and at the right cost. However, the impact of the cloud on traditional IT can be confusing and complex.

We understand this - our experience and skill profile in managing and integrating private and public cloud environments, across multiple platforms, puts Attenda in a unique position to play a vital role in your plans to embrace hybrid IT.

Introduction

Most organisations are already moving along their journey to hybrid IT, where the appropriate balance of managed on-premise, dedicated and multi-tenant hosted and cloud services is achieved to support their business. However, in order to achieve the right outcome and benefit from the promise of cloud, you need to understand what types of applications and technologies are best suited to cloud services and which are more suited to traditional IT environments, or can span these platforms.  It is important to understand how workloads might perform and what costs are associated with these environments, across multiple cloud platforms. Each service has its own performance, availability, recoverability, insight and security requirements; and every enterprise will require a different mix of traditional and cloud services to achieve its goals.

Attenda is working with CIOs to help them think more strategically within the business, determining the right IT investments to drive revenue and profitability. We recognise that building the appropriate cloud delivery model for your business is critical to driving increased value through the provision of new business-led IT services, whilst creating the agility and scalability needed to deliver IT innovations quickly and efficiently. As a CIO, you need a standard way of guaranteeing security, governance and compliance; to protect data, reduce risk and ensure service quality at the right levels for various business functions.

Deploying, managing and securing production applications to successfully utilise the scale and reach of AWS or Microsoft Azure public cloud platforms is not a simple task; it requires focus and expertise in cloud strategy, application design, and on-going service delivery management.

Whether your key business driver for moving part or all of your infrastructure to the cloud is to simplify the environment, increase agility or reduce costs, the fundamental principles of infrastructure management are unchanged. It is vital that you work with a cloud service provider who can guide you on your hybrid IT journey,  delivering the availability, performance and security required for existing and new business critical services, as they are migrated to the cloud; and with service levels that are aligned to meaningful and measurable business outcomes.
