Softcat's Move to Cloud Assessment is carried out to align the most appropriate and cost effective cloud solution with your organisation's needs. We install a data collector in the background, which monitors real-time usage and provides you with a benchmark from which to forecast a budget and options for cloud adoption.
The assessment collects real-time usage statistics to give a full overview and a very real snapshot of how your IT infrastructure estate is operating. From storage to servers to networking we assess current usage and from that we can make a recommendation of how your organisation can best integrate with a cloud platform.
Our on-premise assessment reviews your virtual estate (VMware or Hyper-V) for cloud readiness and whether it'll support a multi-platform architecture. Our multi-vendor approach means we’re not limited when creating a forecast – we look at the results and align the best solution rather than trying to force a fit.
We have a quick-fire cost model that the assessment tool feeds directly into, creating a dashboard from which to run reports. This is a guide figure, but helps us and your organisation create a summary and draw conclusions.
Our sizing estimate takes into consideration each of your machine’s allocation, service dependencies and actual requirements before estimating the options. This is to ensure the proposed solution is the best fit for your organisation’s needs.
Softcat’s multi-cloud approach, combined with years of expertise from our team, provides a knowledgeable and comprehensive service to assist with understanding the impact and cost of cloud adoption. Our qualified consultants use a range of tools to cater for different organisations and the unique objectives each has whilst direct vendor support provides additional specialist assistance. The process is efficient and delivers clear recommendations for a cost effective, organisation-specific cloud.
