Cloud Enablement & Optimization
To tackle the challenges of building the perfect Cloud setup for you, ranging from strategy over technology to adoption, you need a strong partner by your side.
ELCA Cloud Services helps you to become Cloud-ready, to find the best Cloud solutions for your requirements, and to migrate your applications and data to the Cloud.
In the age of digitalization, there is almost no way around Public Cloud services anymore. Nevertheless, when you are starting your journey to the Cloud, you first need to overcome a lot of hurdles:
- Make your organization mature enough for the Cloud.
- Identify the assets to move and your corresponding requirements.
- Define and implement the Cloud landing zone, security, network, connectivity, architecture, and migration patterns as well as automation via Infrastructure as Code (IaC).
- Have an appropriate Cloud business plan.
- Plan for the migration execution and operation in the Cloud and train your employees.
- Perform POCs, pilots, or MVPs on selected workloads in the Cloud as test cases.
- Execute the different migration waves to bring your applications and data to the Cloud.
And even if you are already well ahead in your move to the Cloud, there are still many issues for you to solve:
- Analyze and improve the security, operability, reliability, and performance of your Cloud architecture.
- Review and optimize your Cloud setup and usage regarding costs (FinOps) and sustainability (carbon emissions).
- Modernize your application software beyond lift-and-shift and towards Cloud-native implementations.
