Evaluation and Simplification

SIMPLIFYING THE CLOUD TO MANAGE COSTS AND ENSURE MAXIMUM RETURN ON TECHNOLOGY INVESTMENTS

If your organization’s business plan includes moving to the cloud or a hosting environment and you’re struggling with the cost, coordination and resources, you might want to start thinking of a “business plan” for the migration itself.

Aprio’s best practice runbook approach and templates can help you organize and align your migration targets with business requirements. Any data or application migration requires a defined strategy, methodology, project plan and success metrics to ensure efficient and seamless execution. That is what Aprio’s approach can offer your planning committee.

Aprio’s Business Technology Consulting Services group works with clients to create the business case for technology transformations and design solutions that simplify deployment processes and help manage costs. Our team applies proven methodologies that enable you to:

  • Evaluate the landscape
    Evaluate strategies and operations before deployment to understand costs and benefits.
  • State your case
    Develop a business case to execute “wave groups” when migrating to data center hosting facilities, cloud environments and managed service providers.
  • Control costs
    Align data center costs, service plans and cloud contracts with business activities for cost transparency.
  • Define migration targets
    Using our discovery assessment method and templates, design a step-by-step gating process to define targets and dependencies to create a detailed migration schedule.
