Alpharetta, Georgia – March 15, 2012 – DynaSis, Atlanta’s premier provider of IT services and support for small and medium businesses (SMBs), announced today it will offer Cloud Readiness Assessments as a service to new and existing customers. A Cloud Readiness Assessment is a powerful tool that provides insight into where cloud computing is most appropriate and valuable for a business.
“Leading technology experts including General Keith Alexander, head of both the National Security Agency and the U.S. Cyber Command, have stated that when properly implemented, cloud computing is more secure and offers greater business benefits than on-premise infrastructure,” said Ried Theil, Director of CIO Services for DynaSis. “It’s that ‘getting it right’ challenge that stymies many implementations. That’s what our Cloud Readiness Assessment is designed to overcome.”
The assessment explores opportunities for maximizing cloud computing, makes the business case for it and computes the participating company’s anticipated cloud ROI. The assessments also evaluate application compatibility and explore infrastructure issues that may make the transition more complex or require special handling.
DynaSis’ Cloud Readiness Assessments are planned and executed by a “1+1” team consisting of a DynaSis cloud expert and a knowledgeable company insider. The team runs the project with the input and involvement of stakeholders such as business and technical decision makers and application owners. The initial process, during which 75% of the assessment is completed, usually takes one day and is performed at the company’s site. Additional research offsite completes the process, after which DynaSis delivers its findings.
“A Cloud Readiness Assessment helps define the synergies between a company’s business processes and cloud environments,” says Theil. “It creates a roadmap of possibilities, scoped and prioritized by business objectives, and clearly highlights the projected risks, benefits and costs for the company considering cloud adoption.”
