Cloud adoption is a multi-stage journey
Wherever you are on this journey, ELCA expertise help you move forward to unleash all the potential of cloud technologies and efficiently achieve your business goals.
As an independent company, ELCA can support you on many possible options such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS or Google GCP, but also for a transition to the Swiss sovereign ELCA cloud, or to your own private cloud if you want to keep a strong control on your workloads.
Each organization has a different cloud maturity level. Early in the cloud journey, assessments allow an efficient planning phase. In later stages, they are used to reveal possible gaps and point to platform optimizations.
Cloud native maturity assessment is made to determine your maturity on different axis like organizational readiness, devops, project management methodology or technology proficiency.
Identify desired outcomes to address digital, business, application or infrastructure challenges, take inventory of your application portfolio, and plan your platform adoption. Depending on the context, balance your portfolio to create new monoliths or microservices, use market products in SaaS or adopt a mixed approach.
In addition to the outcome of the Cloud native maturity assessment, we integrate your IT and Digital strategy and build your Strategic Roadmap with you that includes your Application Modernization initiatives as well as other potential greenfield projects. At this stage we help you choose the best options in terms of cloud providers including ELCA cloud, private cloud, hybrid or multicloud approaches.
Enable the new platform by working on different streams such as technical setup, governance, organizational adaptations and new skills acquisition.
In this phase we Enable cloud platform to prepare for Strategic Roadmap execution and start filling enough of the gaps identified in the Cloud native maturity assessment to be able to have all the cloud foundations and processes that can support the deployment of cloud workloads.
Execute your strategic roadmap and unleash the potential offered by cloud and cloud-native architectures and technologies through app modernization implementations or cloud-native greenfield projects.
The last phase is the execution of the Strategic Roadmap where applications are moved or rewritten through Application Modernization projects or created from scratch for the cloud.
This phase also includes platform operation that we can offer through our Managed services as well as continuous cloud analysis to optimize costs and anticipate evolutions pushed by cloud providers.
