If you’ve already embarked upon your cloud journey, Softcat can make sure that you’re getting the most out of your chosen platform. Our Cloud Health Check reviews your cloud architecture, giving you an analysis from which we can then make recommendations for improvements – or give you assurance that your cloud is correctly configured. The review looks at the design topology and security of your cloud as well as the services you are consuming; we then deliver you a report and provide you with a plan for any required remedial action, helping you to adhere to best practices and helping you to ensure your cloud deployment meets the needs of your organisation.
Softcat's Cloud Quick Start Service uses best practice deployment techniques to give your organisation access to your chosen cloud platform, quickly and securely. Within a day (dependent on your organisation's pre-existing local security and firewalls) we can carry out cloud installation, this will; connect, configure, and create a secure connection tailored to your organisation, and present access to the cloud. Once this is operational we carry out a review to optimise usage and suggest the appropriate next steps, depending on your needs.
Softcat's Design Your Cloud service architects the right cloud for you, tailored to your requirements. We first assess your priorities and understand your workloads before producing a suitable solution for a secure and scalable cloud platform, specific to your organisation. This ensures faster and more cost-effective cloud adoption.
Softcat's Go to Cloud Workshop is here to help your organisation if you're looking to move some, or all, of your IT infrastructure to the cloud. A Softcat consultant spends one day on-site with your organisation to understand your current estate and business objectives in order to generate recommendations. The assessment collects data to create a roadmap and projected outcomes to support a move to the public cloud, if that's best for your organisation, identifying a clear starting point to enable cloud adoption.
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.
Softcat’s committed investment and continual search for brilliant people extends firmly into our extensive professional services team and partner network. Our years of experience and expertise designing and implementing solutions incorporating all the major industry technology vendors ensures that we provide effective, best practice advice and solutions. We hold top accreditations with all of the major industry vendors, which we rigorously maintain at a technical certification level to ensure and demonstrate our commitment to delivering the best services with engineering professionals at the top of their game.
