The experts from Sentinel’s Advisory Services can help your organization establish a strong foundation to begin your cloud journey or offer guidance how to better leverage current cloud investments.
Sentinel takes the time to learn about your organization’s unique IT environment and business goals so we can develop the right cloud strategy and solutions to meet your specific needs. We are able to provide cloud JumpStart bundles where Advisory Services are included with AWS, Azure, Office 365, private cloud, or traditional data center platforms. These can help your organization get started in the cloud without making a large initial investment.
Assessments for cloud are important because they give your organization a better understanding of how resources and data are being consumed, as well as how the cloud can transform your environment.
Sentinel has the knowledge and expertise to engage with and guide your organization in every aspect of its cloud journey. It begins with strategy – determining your business goals and developing a cloud adoption plan to help you achieve it. Consultants then recommend cloud investments based on assessments of your environment. Our team of security experts perform an audit to come up with a plan to keep your data safe and accessible. Once a proof of concept has been established, Sentinel advisors develop a cloud migration strategy and guide your organization through production. Ongoing lifecycle support and monitoring are also available to provide updates, alerts, and general management of your cloud environment as needed.
If your organization wants to re-host, re-platform, repurchase, refactor, reframe, or retire portions of its IT environment, you should consider investing in the cloud.
Cloud Consumption Assessment
The Sentinel Advisory team analyzes the cloud services being used by your organization and provides a report detailing cloud usage, costs, and risks. This can help when looking to reduce exposure, lower expenses, and improve your overall cloud maturity. The Cloud Consumption Assessment also includes a cloud readiness assessment, automated cloud discovery, and a workshop to learn more about cloud usage strategies.
Cloud Strategy Planning
Sentinel assists your organization in the development of a cloud strategy so you can get the most out of your investment. Many businesses struggle with their cloud journey due to a lack of proper planning. There are many different factors to consider when migrating a portion of your environment into the cloud, including cost visibility, security, and compliance. Our experts understand these realities and provide guidance so you know the challenges that lie ahead.
Cloud Architecture Design
There are an almost unlimited number of ways to build a cloud, which is why it’s essential to develop a strong architecture in advance that prioritizes your business and application needs. Sentinel’s experts have a wealth of experience designing cloud architectures for our customers, and we work with your organization to create a custom cloud environment optimized to your specific requirements and business goals.
An impact analysis provides insight about the changes your organization might experience upon migrating certain portions of its environment into the cloud. It helps give you a better idea of the costs, key security and compliance requirements, and resources that would be needed for the migration so you better understand what effect the cloud could have on your business.
Sentinel consultants collaborate with your team to ensure your proposed cloud services not only match your business objectives but also fit industry standard best practices for the cloud. These best practices use formalized frameworks designed to maintain a strong focus on growth and future goals.
Check Performance and Analysis
If you already have applications and workloads in the cloud and are concerned about their status or are interested in learning more about how to improve their performance, Sentinel’s Advisory Services team will conduct an analysis to ensure your organization is getting the most from its investments.
