Cloud Solution Design is the consultative process to interpret customer requirements and translate them into the best Cloud service combinations.
Depending on your Business Requirements, any number of Cloud service options might be the best fit for you, such as:
- Setting up a small business e-commerce site on Shopify
- Moving to Google Apps email and adopting a new set of office collaboration practices
- Migrating old IT applications to IaaS providers for improved resilience and reliability
- Transforming your software development team to adopt DevOps practices
- Modernizing and migrating an entire estate of hundreds of applications...
..among many others, with one or more of them being the best combination for your organizations needs.
Cloud Solution Design is the process of conducting this analysis and mapping exercise and formulating the required answers and implementation plan.
