Capgemini’s Cloud Assessment offer gives enterprises a sound methodology and deployment roadmap for smooth migration to the cloud
Dreamforce, the world’s largest vendor technology event, invites attendees to connect with customers, partners and employees in entirely new ways with social and mobile cloud technologies
SAN FRANCISCO AND PARIS – SALESFORCE.COM DREAMFORCE – Nov. 18, 2013 - Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services today announced its new Capgemini Cloud Assessment (CCA) offer which provides enterprises with a 6-8 week complete assessment framework, including a product roadmap, business case and architecture. CCA supports enterprises in deploying a cloud adoption roadmap, paving the way for a smooth transition from on-premises systems and infrastructure to public or private cloud environments.
Capgemini’s Cloud Assessment offer is a four step, vendor agnostic process, which builds on Capgemini’s Wide-angle Application Rationalization Program (WARP), a tried-and-tested approach which has been implemented for hundreds of engagements, during numerous projects in a variety of sectors. The process begins with a multi-work stream assessment phase where the scope and execution strategy are defined, and concludes with a deployment roadmap that sets out practical steps for cloud migration, supported by a comprehensive business case that balances risk and cost savings.
“When it comes to putting a cloud adoption strategy in place, most organizations are not fully aware of which applications are well suited for the cloud and why,” explains Vikrant Karnik Sr. Vice President and Head of Sales: Enterprise Cloud Services – Application Services One* at Capgemini. “Organizations who are currently using resource intensive, on-premise applications need help to understand how to support the transition from these systems to the cloud. We are experiencing significant demand for our CCA from customers who are keen to reduce total cost of ownership, while identifying a simplified business case and cloud implementation roadmap.”
This closed loop assessment process leverages Capgemini’s pre-built accelerators such as return on investment (ROI) calculators, code parsers, risk models and portfolio analyzers. It has been designed to assist enterprises who are keen to move to the cloud to avoid costly on premise applications which are difficult to enhance, expensive to maintain and inhibit business agility. The new Cloud Assessment solution provides sound methodology and a roadmap to migrate to the cloud without putting the enterprise at risk.
Dan Streetman, SVP, Global Alliances, said, “Companies around the world are looking to transform into customer companies. We are delighted that Capgemini is delivering this new Cloud Assessment solution that has the potential to drive customer applications to the cloud and help accelerate customer company transformations.”
The CCA solution will be presented at's Dreamforce 2013 San Francisco on November 18, 2013. Capgemini is a Titanium sponsor of the event.
