Cloud Enablement

Cloud enablement can be defined as the process of enabling an IT organization to effectively and efficiently manage its data center infrastructure, applications, services, and resources in order to meet business objectives.

The goal of Cloud Enablement is to be able to deliver a consistent level of quality of service at all times while maximizing utilization, throughput, and availability.

Cloud enablement consists of two main phases:

1. Cloud Assessment – This phase identifies the current state of IT infrastructure and application landscape along with related processes and procedures. The team will then conduct gap analysis where they analyze what needs to be changed or improved before moving forward into the next phase.

2. Cloud Design – During this phase, the team will develop a plan for transitioning systems into a cloud environment. The team will create a roadmap which outlines all the steps needed to get systems fully functional on an IaaS platform such as AWS or Azure after migration from the current environment.
