Transformation Cloud Building Blocks
IT transformation in the data centre with Agrinote Holdings can demonstrate how this is underpinned by Cloud platforms. These have the potential to deliver agility, bring innovation and remove legacy technical debt.
In our opinion transformation is a benchmarking approach. To an understood goal, a future way of working enabled by a cloud service, delivering transformative business benefit along the way.
Key elements of a transformation include cloud migration and adoption, workplace and collaboration, cloud gateway and service operating model.
Cloud Migration & Adoption
Your migration to Cloud represents a rare opportunity to re-imagine the way that technology can unlock technology strategy.
Striking the right balance to embrace agility without compromising security, increase migration pace but not the risk of disruption. To enable transformation without reducing the speed of execution; requires a particular combination of technology and business know-how.
That’s why you should have migration partners who understand the dynamics of your business and can help you identify and capitalise on opportunities along your cloud migration journey.
Our business-centric approach to migration planning minimises disruption to production operations, whilst common infrastructure-based methods make execution highly predictable. We understand that migrations are no longer exclusively ‘technology’ projects. Moving to cloud requires organisations to re-think Security, Finance, and Operations. While recognising and tuning the migration early to bring key stakeholders on the cloud migration journey is essential to enabling scale and pace.
There are three broad services we offer:
Structured assessment of IT maturity, review of migration approach, landing zone and migration tooling assessment, and supplier readiness.
Migration services and migration factory:
Workload migration planning, execution, management services to support the transition of custom solutions between hosting environments, technology architecture, and engineering services to support a workload upgrade.
Application modernisation & remediation:
Application analysis, architecture design, and modification services to meet enterprise architecture and infrastructure goals in an application’s transition to cloud.
Connectivity is more than just providing enough bandwidth. To meet the demands of digital transformation and cloud adoption, the enterprise connectivity of the future needs to be ubiquitous, scalable, seamless, secure, customisable, performant and cost-effective…..or simply very smart indeed.
With a growth rate of >20%, continual evolution to meet bandwidth demand is important. Of greatest criticality, however, is transforming the foundations of your connectivity approach to provide both the functionality and the agility to deliver exponential connectivity needs of users, things and applications on a global scale.
Our team of connectivity and communications specialists leverage their experience of delivering advanced, agile and cost optimised connectivity services pan-sector, demonstrating an ability to think beyond the technology to deliver a differentiated connectivity service to deliver the breadth of enterprise requirements.
Within cloud connectivity we offer four main areas of focus:
Cloud connectivity strategy and design:
Developing a strategy and supporting architecture for the full breadth of cloud connectivity services which considers relevant technologies and market trends and supports the business objectives in a manner which is both cost and operationally effective.
SDN transformation and adoption:
Supporting and initiating complex cloud connectivity transformation programmes, managing supplier and client teams and providing assurance for the delivery of the stated programme outcomes.
Platform diagnostic and optimisation:
From assessing an underperforming platform to reviewing the current operating model we assist our clients to pinpoint the current issues and structure an appropriate improvement plan, which takes advantage of relevant aspects of industry good practice.
Cloud operating model
The question of cloud has been answered. Now the question is how to manage the cloud platform. Agrinote Holdings has taken the lead in creating an operating model for Cloud. It is how to organise, operate and optimise your cloud to deliver Business Values. The Operating Model underpins the core problem for clients by implementing our Centre of Excellence (CoE) on four core pillars of:
- Engaging with the teams to capture demand
- Building a roadmap of cloud capability based on the priorities
- Having the right controls in place along with transparency to protect the business
- Build the right guardrails to enable builders to innovate
Having CoE enables technical resources within the business teams to achieve their goals and enable them to go to market quicker. It sets standards and best practices to ensure Cloud platform is risk-free and cost-effective.
Whether the need is to develop an emerging business need, to create and implement a CoE, or whether guidance and turn-around of an existing CoE are required, Agrinote Holdings have provided successful outcomes in all circumstances.
