Cloud Computing Strategy
Choose JP Reis to help manage your Cloud strategy.
Banks are prioritizing the cost and flexibility benefits of Cloud computing in the form of third-party applications and infrastructure as a service. Cloud computing provides an affordable computing resource with a level of flexibility unmatched by traditional data center solutions. Security standards on public cloud have attained a level that makes it an accepted hosting solution for most applications in regulated industries and even national security.
Migration strategy must be based on an organization’s specific circumstances and implemented without the risk of disruption. It is important to achieve organizational readiness before making the move because putting flawed infrastructure into the Cloud is unlikely to resolve your issues and it may make them worse.
Our consultants can help you to plan and implement your strategy. Extensive work is still required when implementing “as a Service” [AAS] solutions to get them fully integrated, operational and compliant. We can help with the high level design, architecture and engineering work along with cycles of testing and calibration. We are experienced at leading projects that encompass trading floor communications, compliance systems and associated infrastructure as well as less specialist enterprise platforms. By assessing your current situation and understanding the hopes, concerns and frustrations of key stakeholders we can help to plan a future technology ecosystem that exploits all the benefits of cloud while empowering your staff with simpler workflows.
Working systematically based on years of experience we help to define requirements for performance, access, integration, security and resilience at all levels. We also make sure that there is compatibility with new and emerging technologies and that the development roadmap aligns with your strategy. For proprietary systems that migrate, we help to establish how lifecycle management will be achieved in a hosted environment.
There are very few barriers to a successful cloud migration but it always pays to have experience on your side. JP Reis is here to help.
