Cloud Assessments

Our cloud assessments deliver the greatest possible value from your cloud investments

Get in Touch
Migrating and running your IT infrastructure in the cloud can often be a complex task with many considerations that require expert knowledge of IT infrastructure services, across on-premise, hybrid and public cloud environments. This is where a cloud assessment is not just a “nice to have” but invaluable. It is vital to ensure that the architecture design meets all your business requirements with key factors such as availability, performance, compliance, cost control, data sovereignty, and security all being critical to get right. Working with Daisy cloud specialists who have the relevant expertise to assess, design, deploy, and manage your IT environment, will help ensure the success of your cloud experience.

Once you have decided to implement a cloud-first strategy to support agility, innovation and value, you will be harnessing technology in a very different way. We can help you and your teams to transition to a cloud-first strategy and focus your resources on achieving resilience and availability to drive your success. What this means for you will be different to any other organisation, so working with Daisy and taking full advantage of our expertise is invaluable.
When contemplating a migration to the cloud for all or part of your infrastructure or services, you don’t want to throw the baby out with the bathwater. You need to harness the value of your existing investments and carefully match the steps you take with your business goals. Daisy has vast experience managing cloud migrations for customers of all sizes and in all industry sectors. We can help you avoid common pitfalls and address all the risks so that you achieve the best outcome.
The cloud is multi-faceted, and your environment is likely to have more than one touchpoint to different cloud resources or providers. Daisy CloudBridge has been developed to accommodate all your requirements, enabling connectivity, security and performance. CloudBridge takes a proven legacy capability in infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and managed services and pulls in public cloud services to create a truly managed hybrid environment.
Once you’re in the cloud, the benefits just happen, right? Unfortunately not. As many organisations have found, reaping the benefits of the cloud requires time, effort and expertise. Daisy consultants can help guide you through the process of getting the most out of your cloud investments in terms of cost, performance, availability, security and business continuity.

As well as bespoke engagements and comprehensive cloud services, we deliver the following packaged cloud assessments.
