Cloud Innovation & Transformation

Learn about the Cloud and what it can do for you

Business Challenge

Few trends are more relevant than cloud computing. We see the rate of this change accelerate as more businesses get to grips with adopting various cloud models, and delivery of data from the cloud to our devices becomes more integral to our daily lives.

Business Challenge

LEADing Practice offers a unique service and approach through a combined use of cloud standards, reference content and the extensive experience of our industry professionals.

Service Overview

Our cloud standards and reference content are the result of international academic research and industry expert consensus on repeatable patterns that can be reused and replicated. They have been designed to be tailored to any organization.

Benefits

There are many benefits associated with moving your business to the cloud, and through the usage of our cloud standards and the related reference content, you can build upon the lessons learned by others and reduce time and cost and increase the quality output.

Business Challenge

Today, many enterprises are unknowledgeable about what the
Cloud is

Decision makers often do not know what it brings to their enterprise, and what Cloud offers that on-premise doesn’t. Many people are unaware of how the Cloud

  • grows and shrinks according to enterprise needs, avoiding fixed costs or size constraints in a changing, omnipotent marketplace;
  • supports service automation (digital transformation);
  • overcomes risks when my data is outside of my four walls;
  • enables remote working; and
  • enables extended cloud service modelling, linkage between Cloud workflows, governance, strategy, objectives, measurements, reporting, rules and services.

IT decision makers are often unsure where the Cloud

  • brings transformation and innovation across their enterprise;
  • removes the need for physical locations; and
  • should – or shouldn’t – be standardized to maximize value/cost ratio.

Furthermore, enterprise leaders are often unable to match who the Cloud

  • aligns with in their organization, hence discovering new or adapted roles that maximize value; and
  • supports or automates in real-time decision making in Cloud analytics, reporting, measurements and rules.

Another organizational challenge is that enterprises often are unable to identify when the Cloud rolls out project-by-project, department or function, having problems with effectively identifying the transitions along the way.

Last, but not least, there is uncertainty as to why the Cloud motivates any enterprise to become outperformers, unconstrained by physical constraints that extend beyond hardware to include workplaces, employee locations and travel.

Service Offering

LEADing Practice offers a unique service and approach

Cloud computing is the on-demand availability of computer system resources, especially data storage (cloud storage) and computing power, without direct active management by the user. The term is generally used to describe data centers available to many users over the Internet. LEADing Practice offers a unique service and approach through the combined use of cloud standards, reference content and the extensive experience of our industry professionals. Our Cloud Innovation & Transformation services include, but is not limited to:

  • Analysis of the current Cloud situation and come up with detailed improvement suggestions.
  • Analyze and evaluate your Cloud.
  • Assess your existing Cloud Strategy and help enhance it.
  • Develop directional Cloud aspects (vision, strategy, objectives, etc.).
  • Identify Cloud requirements and assess your development potential.
  • Design a new – or improve upon an existing – Cloud.
  • Analyze your Cloud user (role) concept.
  • Rethink and transform your Cloud workflows (manual and automated).
  • Spot and detail how to decomplexify your Cloud.
  • Identify optimization potential within the Cloud.
  • Assign and work with your Cloud.
  • Develop a continuous Cloud improvement technique.
  • Develop a Cloud Architecture; something that can help structure and align various Cloud concepts and the Cloud.
  • We can help the transformation from “siloed IT-centric Cloud services” to “user-centric Cloud products”.
  • Work with change and make it stick!
  • Recognise and agree on where and how to standardize.

Other services which might be interesting in combination with the above:

  • We have data across 10 sectors and 52 different industries, categorized into worst, best and outperforming practices.
  • Therefore, we can benchmark you against these practices and come with detailed improvement suggestions of where and how you could learn from others, enabling you with best, industry and outperforming practices.
  • Knowledge worker analysis; identification of your knowledge workers (depending on industry, about 5-15% are core differentiating and core competitive knowledge workers). The rest are non-core knowledge workers, and therefore differentiating in the Cloud concepts adds no value.
  • How to go about Cloud cost reduction.
  • How to go about Cloud Productization (advanced categorization and classification). This could be used to develop clean and simple:
    • Cloud as a Product (CaaP) concepts – can be used for Cloud product basket structure.
    • Cloud Product as a Service (CPaaS) concepts – simplifies overall construct and enhances service value delivered.
  • Develop a Cloud Business Case.
  • Cloud Change Management services.
