SenecaGlobal & Device42 Launch Cloud Strategy & Economics Workshop to Help Companies Evaluate Cloud Readiness

Guiding companies on their cloud journeys with discovery & asset inventory management technology, tools and processes

OAK BROOK, Ill., JULY 30, 2018 – SenecaGlobal, one of the world’s fastest-growing global IT outsourcing companies and a leader in cloud solutions announced today the availability of a new Cloud Strategy & Economics Workshop. The Workshop offers companies a finite and structured format for evaluating cloud strategies and reviewing progress related to cloud initiatives.

“Over and over, we hear from clients that they are eager to get their cloud migration started but many are hesitant because of a lack of solid strategy or initial business case” says Eric Crump, VP, Global Cloud and Managed Services, SenecaGlobal. “In this Workshop, cloud experts will lead client teams through a strategic process to access and analyze their data specifically to address those big questions.”

Customized Workshop engagements will help organizations:

The Cloud Strategy and Economics Workshop harnesses SenecaGlobal’s enterprise cloud experience and proprietary Cloud Journey methodology and rapid rationalization approach powered by Device42’s proven and industry leading discovery technology. “The Journey to Cloud starts with the ‘You are here’ dot on the map. Device42 provides an automated, accurate, and detailed view of your application infrastructure.” Says Raj Jalan, CEO of Device42. “That situational awareness, in the expert hands of SenecaGlobal, enables customers to transform their operations with confidence.”

Organizations that participate in a Cloud Strategy & Economics Workshop will focus on achieving three milestones:

  1. Instrument & data collection on up to 300 servers
  2. Unique and custom analysis
  3. Specific and strategic execution plan

The typical Workshop is two to four weeks depending on the environment and data required. Instrumentation rapidly deployed begins collecting data immediately. Once the data is collected and evaluated, the project culminates in a 2-day workshop at the client site where the results and recommendations are presented, showing the clients strategic cloud journey, proposed cloud architecture, TCO and economic business case. The simulation illustrates the full cloud journey for a particular set of IT assets.

The Cloud Strategy and Economics Workshop also provides a foundation for future state architecture, including economics and plans. For now, this service is offered on a fixed cost basis and participating companies may apply the investment to a future cloud project with SenecaGlobal. A more detailed description of SenecaGlobal’s industry leading approach to the Cloud, with its proprietary Client Cloud Journey, can be found here.

Run Your Cloud Operations Like a Formula 1 Racing Team

Join SenecaGlobal for an evening of drinks, networking and discussion around the most pressing question in business today: How do I Optimize my Cloud Operations?

The traditional approach to technology deployments is "Set-It and Forget-It." However, designing and implementing solutions in the cloud completely changes the traditional paradigm and approach. You can no longer Set and Forget. You must always be optimizing. You must drive a culture that believes achieving even the smallest performance-to-cost gain could have major impact.

With that, try thinking of your Cloud Operations as a Formula 1 Racing Team: How do you achieve the highest performance of your solutions at the appropriate cost levels?

The discussion will be led by Eric Crump, VP of Global Cloud and Managed Services at SenecaGlobal. Eric has dedicated his 23-year career to leading world class consulting and client success teams for systems integrators and high-tech product companies. He has successfully lead digital transformations and implemented technology solutions for hundreds of the world’s most admired brands.

While conducting security awareness training might not seem worth the effort, a well-designed program can generate tremendous benefits.

Harnessing behavioral science, such programs use unconventional methods. Training posters may wind up in bathroom stalls, and tests may include baiting employees with phony phishing emails.
