Public CloudWay to the cloud

With the right strategy into the cloud

When entering the cloud, you have to consider many variables and compare services. It is easy to lose track of everything. We support you from planning to commissioning and beyond, finding and implementing the right solutions and requirements for your cloud environment.

Step by step

Step by step with the cloud

Discover your way to work with the cloud with us. We take care to bring your IT in line with the cloud and adapt processes and requirements entirely to your ideas.

Define the goals (target state)

What do you want to achieve by using the cloud, when do you want to achieve it and how do you want to achieve it? The W-questions help you identify your goals and formulate them as precisely as possible. A sharp target picture is the cornerstone of successful projects and a vision should also be given for the cloud. We support you in this with our expertise.

Analyze the general conditions (actual state)

Before you can start, we should look around at what previous environment we are traveling in and what challenges await us along the way. Only then can we think about how to solve the challenges and what equipment we need to do so. Do you only use your own infrastructure so far? Are you already using cloud technologies? Which applications are business-critical? Which processes are time-consuming and currently executed manually?

Creating the rough concept

How do we want to deal with the challenges we have identified? Which challenges do we want to address first? In the rough concept, we formulate the basic framework of our solution in such a way that all stakeholders involved understand the challenges immediately and new stakeholders can be quickly integrated and picked up during the creation process. The art of formulating the rough concept is to define the framework of the solution without including essential contradictions or getting lost too quickly in details.

Find the right services

It's like riding a bike, basically all bikes have two wheels and get us from point A to point B. If I'm going off-road, a road bike with narrow tires and no suspension shouldn't necessarily be my first choice. It is therefore always worthwhile to first look at the service offering of the providers and assess the extent to which it can support us in achieving our goals. Here, the rough concept helps us to keep an eye on our goals, which can be very difficult in view of the constant stream of new services, some of which solve the same tasks. We support you in finding the right services for your needs. The fast-moving cloud business is part of our daily work.

Define the detailed concept

After we have made the tool or provider selection, we can refine our rough concept, we can take up individual challenges and formulate their solution in concrete terms based on the defined tool. For all sub-architectures, the rule is that they should not contradict the global solution and should be aligned to a common goal. It is part of best practice to keep automation in mind right from the start. That is why we carefully weigh up which steps are worth automating. When it comes to the operating concept, it is also important not to want to specify too many details, as changes can often still occur, especially in the early development phase of the solution.

The implementation of the concept

Finally, things get underway, equipped with a plan we can start implementing the concept. Processes are automated, existing systems and applications are adapted and migrated, pipelines in the cloud for support are set up and your cloud environment grows. Tools such as Octane or Jira and methods such as Scrum or Kanban support us in managing the work in the team and quickly achieving results and generating initial, important added value early on. In order to always develop the solution close to your ideas, we are in constant exchange and provide new results step by step.

The future of your cloud

You can gradually integrate further cloud services into your solution. Containers are an essential part of migrating your existing business applications to the cloud. Your colleagues, who have new time freed up due to the automation of IT processes, can use this for the development and provision of new services and thus position your company even more efficiently and differentiated. This allows you to act with even greater speed on the market. More requirements will follow and the cloud will continue to expand. We will accompany you in your next steps even after the work has been completed and will always advise you on the latest changes in the cloud and continue to develop the cloud with you.
