Here are some examples of the type of work we recommend and progress with our customers:

Concept, Feasibility and Strategy

Designed for organisations without a clear cloud migration path, the cloud assessment service can help you clearly understand the cot of your existing IT investment, evaluate options for migration to IaaS, PaaS and SaaS services, and build business case/procurement material which can help you get there faster. The service can be tailored to deliver just the specific items that your organisation needs.

Design, Plan and Execute

Migrate critical business systems and entire datacentres from legacy silos to a new secure, hybrid multi-cloud platform. We will interview key business and technical stakeholders and deploy tools in your infrastructure to ensure we understand the criticality of your applications and how they interact with each other. Workloads can then be migrated in the right order, to the right platform and sized appropriately, ensuring all the benefits of a true hybrid, multi-cloud strategy.

Review, Enhance and Automate

This service is designed for customers who have already migrated legacy technology to the cloud or for customers who have been using cloud for a while but are yet to realise the full benefits it can provide. UKCloud consultants will undertake an assessment of your cloud environment focussing on commercial, technical and security characteristics, then develop and execute work packages that deliver operational efficiency and cost savings.

Cloud-native, DevSecOps and Scaling

Cloud Native applications fully utilise features such as auto-scaling, message queues, object storage and containerisation. Using these services often requires a radically different approach to application development and deployment, this services provides the expertise to ensure your project goes smoothly and your team are ready to adopt new ways of working.

Webinar: Preparing for your journey to the Cloud – Assessment to Business Case.

Without a coherent plan, your use of cloud is tactical and piecemeal. It’s difficult to keep control of these new cloud services whilst also keeping your existing IT afloat. In effect things are getting worse and you need them to get better.

That’s why here at UKCloud we have our Professional Services team – a handpicked group of our experienced multi-cloud experts who can make the process of creating a pragmatic, business-led and coherent cloud adoption plan a breeze.

Learn more by watching this webinar, hosted by Cloud Transformation expert, Tim Lawrence and joined by Mark Melvin from Shaping Cloud, who will guide you through this process and help you begin your transformation journey with confidence.
