Our Cloud Architecture and Design Services

Cloud Assessment

We begin with a deep dive into your current state. Initial assessments will uncover what’s working (and what’s not) in your current architecture, processes, workflows, tools, and operations.

We use this current state assessment as a springboard to deliver you business value, faster. With the baseline established, we’re able to provide both specific, time-bound actions and a long-term plan for implementation.

Cloud Design and Plan

Our cloud architecture design and plan provide recommendations for:


The specific containers, tools, and services you’ll need to build out your cloud capabilities


The standards and methodologies we know foster success.


The technology platforms to build on top of.


The sound security, compliance, and governance frameworks you’ll need in place.

Cloud Service Management

Beyond the specific recommendations for each piece of the cloud puzzle, we set you up with a plan to solve it. Our cloud service management is designed to ensure consistent measurement and handling across all of your platforms.

We deliver a prioritized roadmap for implementation and a detailed migration plan, complete with effort estimates.
