Cloud Consulting

 

Adoption of cloud computing can help you to reduce operational expenses, boost innovation, unlock new possibilities, and realize your strategic IT objectives faster, or it could just be a tool to regain your lost core business focus. No matter what your goals are, capitalizing on cloud computing is a significant IT decision—one that can have far-fetching implications  on your general IT strategy, future IT technology acquisitions, regulatory obligations, staffing, governance, and eventual technology-enabled business goals realization.

The premise that one single technology decision could impact so much—and that too across varied organization functions—makes the choice both critical and sometimes very difficult, especially in the rapidly emerging and continuously shifting cloud computing landscape.

Furthermore, though cloud computing is a direct and obvious fit for many scenarios, including the ones that require a thorough analysis of the changes, risks, and opportunities that a compute model brings to an enterprise. This analysis is critical in the context of the client’s unique needs, technology landscape, and IT strategy, and thus requires varied, cross-cutting discipline and expertise, besides the core cloud computing specialization.


We appreciate and understand the unique cloud computing variants that affect IT decision-making. Our cloud consulting offerings are designed to support you through your decision-making process, from exploratory evaluations to cloud strategy to solution and technology decisions. Our cloud consulting services ensure you ask all the right questions, get clinical answers upfront, and make informed cloud and IT decisions— the ones that will help you accomplish your business objectives!

 

Our Services

Cloud Cost Optimizations

 

What is the service?

Our cloud cost optimization service is a two/ three day engagement where our consultants interact with the team. We enumerate the running cloud services and understand the nature of each. A detailed study is carried to understand the role of each cloud service vis-a-vis business outcome. 

Based on theses studies and our patented methodology (KatalystAssessments), we formulate the suggestions that are guaranteed to improve your RoI from cloud investments.


Methodology:

The journey starts with identifying waste by uncovering inefficient use of cloud resources. Cloud cost optimization is not a once-and-done process, and you can immediately start saving money on your cloud infrastructure costs. 

The seven areas that we evaluate for cloud optimization: 

  1. Shut down idle or underutilized cloud instances
  2. Run dev instances only when needed (not 24x7)
  3. Leverage discount options
  4. Meet usage commitments
  5. Clean up unused storage
  6. Use less-expensive regions
  7. Upgrade from out-of-date instance families

Outcome:

  1. 10-50% reduction in monthly billing on cloud expenditure
  2. Improve DevOps capability to deliver software quickly with minimum downtime (includes scalability, reliability and disaster recovery engineering)
  3. Alternative hybrid cloud scenarios for reduced costs (includes in-premise to cloud and inter cloud deployments)

Cloud deployments are most optimum at the time of the launch! Over period of time, as the organisation understands their usage, there is a lot of potential to optimize cloud services leveraging the elasticity of the cloud. We have seen cost savings of over 50% in some implementations.


Why Us:

We have created patented processes and analytical tools that analyse usage of each cloud computational resource for a specified duration and identify areas wherein you can save $. We eliminate all wastages, oversizing, not-in-use-anymore scenarios and also suggest alternative approaches to save money.

Our consultants have been trained by OEMs and have helped dozens of customers in optimizing their cloud spends.

 

Cloud Migrations & Assessments

 

What is the service:

This is a 2-3 days engagement that will provide step by step guidance on moving application from in-premise to the cloud. The study will also uncover the RoI you can expect from moving to the cloud.


Methodology:

We assess your existing applications and hardware infrastructure landscape. Jointly with your team, we will enumerate current and future software needs in your organization. Based on this, we create a complete blue-print of Cloud adoption tailored to your organization.

We help you deploy your applications from on-premise to Cloud. We pick up a specific workload or application, provision necessary cloud infrastructure, migrate application and its data. Create DevOps plan and implementation framework for smooth operations. 

Finally, we cover team readiness by providing trainings on different cloud concepts & services.


Outcome:

  1. Identify application and data to be moved first to the cloud
  2. Cost benefit analysis of moving each application to the cloud
  3. Provide roadmap and strategy for cloud adoption in the future
  4. Training for smooth handoff


Why Us:

We have created patented processes and analytical tools that analyse usage of each cloud computational resource for a specified duration and identify areas wherein you can save $. We eliminate all wastages, oversizing, not-in-use-anymore scenarios and also suggest alternative approaches to save money.

Our consultants have been trained by OEMs and have helped dozens of customers in optimizing their cloud spends.
