Where are you on your Cloud journey?
Arrk has identified a defined Cloud journey that the majority of organisations are embarking on, broken down into five key competencies Arrk calls this journey: EMOTO™:
Enablement | Migration | Optimisation | Transformation | Operation
Regardless of where your organisation is on this voyage to the Cloud, Arrk has a range of services which can help your organisation better use the Cloud to your competitive advantage. We work with a variety of UK organisations across a spectrum of sectors on a range of projects which span the whole of the journey.
Stage One | Enablement
As the Cloud market matures, more and more organisations are making the move to the Cloud. Stage One – Enablement is focused giving you the confidence, the strategy and the informed expertise to make well-thought through choices when it comes to deploying services on the Cloud. Arrk helps organisations work through Total cost of ownership (TCO) reports to build robust business plans to help instigate the move to the Cloud.
Stage Two | Migration
Simply put Arrk helps organisations move data, applications and services from legacy infrastructure onto the Cloud – or move one Cloud environment to another.
For many organisations, the first foray into the world of Cloud involves a migration project where Development and Test environments are moved from legacy infrastructure to the Cloud, often leaving their Production workloads on legacy infrastructure. They may or may not do a degree of Enablement before Migrating their first production workloads to the Cloud.
While the promise of Cloud includes improved cost-efficiency, the ability to scale quickly and higher application performance, the process of migration is a difficult and complex process which requires a high level of planning and skilled execution.
Stage Three | Optimisation
Harnessing the potential of the Cloud doesn’t stop once your services have been moved over, far from it, this is effectively just the true beginning of the journey. Sub-optimal Cloud deployments can be very expensive, prohibitively so, there are also potentially damaging ramifications for user experience. Legacy solutions (not Cloud Native) consume more resources than necessary.
Therefore, Cloud Optimisation is a vital component where sub-optimal deployments are reconfigured to exploit the advantages of the Cloud, to make best use of the features made available by Cloud providers.
Stage Four | Transformation
The Cloud is the perfect hatchery for Innovation and ideation, it allows organisations to rapidly and inexpensively develop and build out new ideas, services and products. Handing those innovative organisations a true competitive advantage.
Arrk helps many organisations to design, develop and launch new digital services, with the Cloud playing a leading role in our ability to offer Rapid Digital Transformation – launching digital products and services in weeks, not months and years.
