Often, IT professionals struggle to take advantage of cloud computing due to a lack of cloud expertise, resources and an ability to manage costs. Datapath Cloud Consulting provides the expertise and guidance you need to help map out a straightforward cloud strategy that prioritizes your individual needs and long-term goals.
Through a comprehensive assessment and discovery phase, Datapath will identify key challenges, immediate business, technical, operational, service and security objectives along with resource requirements to plan your journey to the cloud.
While the decision to move to the cloud may be driven by many reasons, the process has many facets. Not all applications are ideal candidates for the cloud. Each organization has unique business requirements and most benefit from a phased transition – prioritizing what should move to the cloud and when.

A cloud readiness assessment is a process that makes use of a cloud readiness assessment checklist; an itemized list that indicates if applications and data can be moved to the cloud smoothly, with minimal impact to business operations during the transition. Using data gathered by a cloud readiness assessment tool, visual representations of the organization's needs can be created, along with details about what steps need to be taken in order for the migration to go smoothly.
An effective assessment is the first step in migrating to the cloud and solving your business objectives. Extensive information gathering on your existing landscape and internal documentation results in a fully documented plan and effective strategy to streamline your migration and cloud build, including a TCO analysis on the new cloud platform for applications in-scope and a future state architectural design.
Our proprietary cloud assessment employs both processes and collaboration to provide a 360-degree view into your organization. We deploy tools that can map data flow, foundational component structure, and application integration dependencies. And conduct information gathering on application workflow and customer documentation, all while working with key stakeholders to ensure requirements and timelines are met.
We leave no stone unturned, providing our clients with a fully-informed view into existing infrastructures and processes, as well as potential opportunities and challenges. The assessments also provide a total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis for a new cloud platform with applications in scope, so you know what to expect and how to plan for a seamless integration and cloud adoption.
