Solutions to manage costs and increase agility without compromising security and functionality
The question for most organisations is no longer whether to move to the cloud but when and how.
The benefits are obvious: better workload distribution, scalability, flexibility, capital cost reduction. However, it can be challenging to determine how to best leverage cloud for maximum business advantage. Selecting the right model is critical. Decision-makers must consider:
- How business critical are the applications being moved to the cloud
- Security and regulatory compliance demands
- Workload usage patterns
- What level of integration is required with other organisational functions.
Cloud Assessment Services
UXC Connect Cloud Readiness assessments are tailored to the specific needs of your business based on critical assessment stages. First, we analyse the current state of your IT environment. We then identify, score and document high-value cloud initiatives according to the best chance of success. Next, we create a preliminary roadmap to phase the implementation of your cloud initiative, then review planned initiatives and make changes as appropriate. Then we assess application portfolios and platforms to determine which are best to move to the cloud and how to prioritise the process. Finally, we quantify the benefits.
Server virtualisation has done more to reduce data centre costs and increase workload agility than any other technology.

UXC Connect has extensive experience in all aspects of building a private cloud to provide a shared and scalable infrastructure combined with full control over company and customer data, security and regulatory compliance.
