To cloud or not to cloud?
This was the question, majority of the enterprises were confronted with, while embracing the cloud storm in the earlier years. This storm has unobjectionably altered these enterprises in lot of ways. However, today, most of these enterprises have already spent the last few years in understanding the cloud storm without being overwhelmed about it.
Whether these enterprises are just getting started or are exploring to migrate beyond the test/development workloads to cloud, a solid roadmap and strategy is always the best foot forward. Building a strategic roadmap while migrating to cloud not only ensures capitalizing on the benefits – in terms of cost reduction, agility, decreased time to market; but also keeps an eye on their CAPEX, hence enabling them to lead to the path of innovation.
An organization today rightly wants to focus on their core competencies to succeed in this competitive economy. They make a smart choice by leveraging the best of the expertise and experience of a cloud service provider to complement their cloud strategy. However, selecting a right cloud partner for your organization could be exhausting and tricky. They undergo a plethora of questions while evaluating a right partner for their business –
- Which cloud service provides would be best for me?
- What could be the pricing structure?
- Which applications should I move to the cloud and how?
- Who owns the data?
- Which cloud configuration is best suited for my organization?
- How do I optimize my cloud costs?
- How safe is my data in the cloud?
- Can I scale up and down to meet my business needs?

Cloud Advisory and Road Map Approach
“Being a fast-moving consumer goods business, agility, speed-to-market and costeffectiveness are critical to being competitive. The migration process under our cloud computing strategy with AWS was originally thought to take 18-24 months running on an “aggressive” timeline. Together with BlazeClan, we were able to complete the migration in under 2 months, and with seamless user experience. Moreover, the internal team acquired skills to become quite self-sufficient in managing the AWS infrastructure. The partnership experience with AWS and BlazeClan has been totally AWSome!”
