Cloud Consulting

The Cavan Group has developed a range of services to assist clients throughout their cloud journey from strategy and cloud adoption framework to partner selection, governance, organizational change and cost optimization.

Cloud Strategy

Cloud Strategy & TCO

Whether you already have workloads in the public cloud or are in the early stages of cloud adoption, The Cavan Group can develop a strategy that is customized for your needs. We will develop a thorough understanding of the business drivers, identify measurable success factors and outline the expected results.

As part of our strategy development process, we review existing cloud deployments, assess the self-hosted applications suites, and develop a roadmap for workload deployment or migration. In addition, we evaluate the skills and experience of the IT resources, review the organization structure and make recommendations on how to optimize team performance and collaboration.

Our on-staff AWS and Azure certified architects will assist in selecting the providers and services best suited your application workloads.

Cloud Adoption Framework

Cloud Adoption Framework

The Cavan Group’s Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF) provides the education, inspiration and structure to develop a sustainable and repeatable process for cloud deployment. Our straightforward, pragmatic methodology is based on:

  • Business - Strategy, ROI and Risk
  • Resources – Skills, experience, motivation, training and organizational structure
  • Governance – KPIs, consumption, licensing and management
  • Platforms & Services – Compute, storage, network, database, AD
  • Security – Access & Identity management, network, data security
  • Operations – Monitoring, analytics, reporting, change management, DR
Cloud Governance

Cloud Governance

Cloud technology has transformed how IT provisions and delivers services by facilitating rapid deployment of applications, increased scalability and reducing capital expenditure. However, many early cloud initiatives were impulsive and lacked the governance and controls required to ensure compliance, security, and cost optimization.

The Cavan Group Cloud Governance program is focused on accountability, responsibility and risk mitigation. We create business-driven policies and procedures that ensure an appropriate degree of control for cloud computing service procurement, provisioning, operation, performance and management.
