NEW YORK, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- To support the expanding role cloud services are playing across enterprise information technology (IT), Dimension Data, the $5.8 billion global ICT solutions and services provider, has launched a new cloud readiness service designed to help organizations assess their ability and preparedness for migrating applications to the cloud. Dimension Data's approach addresses readiness across four critical aspects of cloud computing: business alignment, organization, infrastructure and applications. With expertise in networking, virtualization, security, data centers, application migration, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and cloud technologies, Dimension Data's team of consultants deliver a cloud roadmap to help organizations realize the benefits of cloud computing more immediately.
"The lack of a long-term cloud strategy can result in costly rearchitecture and reintegration measures down the line," said Steve Nola, CEO of Dimension Data's Cloud Solutions Business Unit. "Dimension Data brings a rich heritage in building multifaceted enterprise IT and hybrid cloud solutions, enabling organizations to build a cloud roadmap that preserves business agility and operational efficiencies even as their business needs evolve."
According to Jeff Packard, Dimension Data's Global Head of Consulting and Professional Services, "Moving to the cloud is a complex process. There are many aspects to consider such as security, application migration, internal readiness, billing, authentication, single sign-on and integration with other applications. Even the most sophisticated IT organizations find the process of migrating to the cloud challenging. Leveraging our expertise across traditional IT and cloud services, Dimension Data now offers clients a suite of consulting services to help them prepare for their cloud journey."
Dimension Data's cloud readiness service is comprised of four elements:
The cloud readiness service provides organizations a comprehensive picture of where they stand in their cloud deployment cycle while also providing a long-term strategy for migrating key applications to the cloud.
