The days when avoiding the Cloud was a defensible position for a business are gone. Recent research has shown that a move to the public cloud pays off in many tangible ways beyond less spending on hardware, as shown in the table below. Here we find that despite fears to the contrary, the Cloud helps businesses improve security. And, while many businesses believe data access on the Cloud is slower than on-premise, businesses on the Cloud are 60% more likely to report improved data access performance.
Supporting the Adoption of New Technologies
Leverage the Best Use of the Cloud with EMOTO™
Moving to the Cloud isn’t about shutting down your on-premise capabilities and putting everything in the cloud — it’s about adding the Cloud to your IT toolbox. Leading businesses utilise the best capabilities of both their on-premise and cloud systems to make each element perform at its best. If you want to leverage the technology of today, Cloud must be a key part of your IT infrastructure.
We have identified a defined Cloud journey that the majority of organisations are embarking on, broken down into five key competencies. We call this journey: EMOTO™
The Cloud Journey
Cloud Solutions Aligned to the Needs of Your Business
For customers looking to implement cloud solutions, Arrk’s approach to cloud services seeks to understand business need first before getting into technology. We use a collaborative Lean-Agile discovery process which, depending on the organisation and the specific cloud challenge, may involve some or all of users of the system, business stakeholders, sponsors, product leads as well as members of the IT team.
Our experienced team of Arrkitects run a series of collaborative workshops to understand your as-is processes, how the current solutions are deployed, the persona’s that utilise those applications and the goals they wish to achieve. As we progress, we identify pain points, technical and business spikes that need to be addressed and, where appropriate to the customer, idealised to-be end states for your processes and cloud solutions. The outcomes from this process inform our cloud recommendations and help ensure that change is aligned to the needs of the business and isn’t simply technology change for technologies sake.
We work with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Microsoft Azure. We deliver cloud services that are right for your business.
