Cloud Readiness Assessment

Leveraging CSI’s Cloud Readiness Assessment helps you realise the maximum value from your existing infrastructure and future cloud investments.

Our cloud readiness assessment service has been specifically designed to provide clients with the help needed to create and execute a business objective aligned cloud strategy.

We work in partnership with our clients’ internal IT teams to guide them through each step of their transformation journey, whilst avoiding any pitfalls that new technology and process change can uncover.

By applying thorough environmental analysis techniques and tooling, CSI facilitates focused workshops with your teams to assess your current (‘as-is’) and help design your target (‘to-be’) operating model.

Along the way we will work in partnership to correctly size the proposed environment, financially model proposed consumption across different strategy outcomes and use our experience to simplify your planning services.

Our relatively low-cost services enable huge business and organisational benefits that really can turbo-charge your digital transformation initiatives!

By partnering with CSI at an early stage, you’ll end up with a more controlled, efficient, highly automated, and cost-effective transformation outcome than trying it alone, without our team of experts at your side.
