Cloud Strategy & Operating Model

Free to Soar above the Cloud

What does the word “cloud” mean to you? Is it just something that obscures your view or is it something that could allow your IT operations and business to truly soar?

itopia has the methodology required to radically simplify and standardize specific services. We will scrutinize whether there are any specialties that contribute to the success of your business.

Drawing on our experience, we help cloud providers and operators to fully automate the production and distribution chain across the entire life cycle.

And once the cloud is firmly grounded, it’s chocks away as far as your applications are concerned.

itopia – the Dependable Air Traffic Controller for Navigating through the Cloud

Cloud-Oriented Architecture

Whether the issue is infrastructure, platform technology or software as a service, itopia is familiar with all the opportunities and challenges that come with service design and integration. We will work with you to determine how the cloud can best be deployed in your target architecture based on your business strategy.

Cloud Business Case

People who expect the cloud to deliver lower costs in the short term are often disappointed.

Because we understand the business models of financial and other service providers, we can build up an overall picture of the opportunities, costs, and risks involved. Who said you can’t have your cake and eat it too? With us, the users get to eat it and the CFO gets to keep it.

Cloud Migration

We want you to start enjoying the sunshine above the cloud(s) as quickly as possible! We know the safest ascent routes and will work with you to choose the one that best fits your circumstances.

Together, we can align the sequence and timing of the steps with your overall project portfolio. This will keep the risks, costs, and benefits in perfect balance during the migration process.

Cloud Target Operating Model

Highly standardized service catalogs, self-service, rapid provision, and greater flexibility with regard to costs. Be sure to make the most of these features, whether you are operating your own cloud or want to tap into one.

We will identify which business and IT structures, and which processes need to be adapted in order to unlock the full potential of the cloud.

Cloud Partner Evaluation

With so many options, how do you even begin to choose between a public, hybrid, virtual private, and private cloud? Or between Switzerland and the rest of the world? Or how do you decide whether or not to go with technical interfaces for integrating everything into your service management system?

We will work out how much freedom you will lose and what you stand to gain by relying on a particular partner – by considering this from a strategic, regulatory, and financial perspective.

Heading into the Cloud? Or Are You Already There?

We will be happy to talk to you about our experience in this area and work out the next steps with you.
