The Cloud Adoption Journey


When starting a new business, there is no question about how the technology should work - everything goes in the cloud. However, most traditional businesses still run on-premise systems, and may be in various stages of adopting cloud technologies. Innovolve offers a full range of services to assist our clients through their cloud adoption journey.

Business Agility

Getting the resources you need when you need them tends to shorten IT projects resulting in less effort to deliver the project and a quicker and more predictive time-to-market.

New Business Models

Adopting cloud technologies enables innovative business models, generating fresh value propositions and resulting in new revenue streams.

Improved Collaboration

The nature of cloud-based solutions naturally improves collaboration within teams. Company resources are available from anywhere, at any time using a variety of devices. 

Work From Anywhere

With cloud computing, if you’ve got an internet connection you can be at work. And with mobile technologies, you’re not restricted by which device you’ve got to hand.

Business Continuity

Protecting your data and systems is an important part of business continuity planning. Whether a power failure or other crisis, having your applications built in the cloud ensures it always available.

Improved Efficiency

Using standard services can significantly reduce issues and defects - which increases business continuity. Cloud computing allows you to deploy the same service repetitively, with the same result every time.

Better Resource Utilization

On the other side of the “business agility” model, more efficient projects and less operational issues allow your employees to spend their time on other more useful activities that may offer a greater potential value to your business.

Less capital expense

With cloud computing, there is no upfront investment required, which allows organizations to start projects faster but also end them without losing any capital investments.

Cloud Deployment Models


Native


Continue to realize value from your existing on-premise infrastructure while extending your capabilities with the Cloud.

Cloud-based applications are fully deployed in the cloud, and take full advantage of all the benefits of cloud computing.

Private


When needed, make use of resource isolation options to satisfy business and regulatory requirements.

The private cloud deployment uses the same legacy IT  infrastructure with application management and virtualization technologies for improved resource utilization.

Hybrid


Continue to realize value from your existing on-premise infrastructure while extending your capabilities with the Cloud.

Hybrid cloud deployments refers to extending, and grow, an organization’s infrastructure into the cloud while connecting cloud resources to internal systems.

Our Cloud Adoption Framework


Adopting Cloud Technologies presents many benefits, such as increased business agility, flexibility and reduced costs. However, in order to fully realize these benefits you may need to acquire new skills and create or update core processes. Doing so can maximize the business value and minimize the business risks of cloud adoption.

Our cloud adoption framework helps organizations understand how cloud adoption can transform the way they work, and it provides structure to identify and address gaps in skills and processes. Applying this framework in your organization results in an actionable plan with defined work streams that can guide the path to cloud adoption.
