Workload Placement Consulting

The Cavan Group offers a complete range of Workload consulting services from Placement Strategy through Hosting Selection and Migration. Our clients benefit greatly from our specialization, experience and focused approach in these three key areas.

Workload Placement Strategy

Workload Placement Strategy

The Cavan Group has the expertise, experience, and industry insight to develop workload placement strategies for complex enterprise IT environments. At the outset, we capture all the business drivers including compliance, risk, resiliency, global footprint, customer base, and costs. We strive to leverage existing investments in cloud services, self-hosted environments and colocation, while exploring opportunities for further consolidation, standardization, optimization and efficiencies. Our independent status guarantees that our strategic advice and recommendations are objective and not compromised by partner relationships.


Evaluation of Hosting Options

The Cavan Group has developed the industry standard for evaluation and selection of hosting services. We have earned a reputation of being “beyond reproach” in our selection process, the equitable treatment of service providers, and the absolute fairness in evaluation of responses.

From public cloud to colocation and managed hybrid cloud, our evaluation and selection methodology is proven to be one of the most thorough and impartial in the consulting community. Our process includes an in-depth understanding of IT strategy, business goals, application architecture, technical imperatives and budget parameters. Our knowledge of the global data center and cloud services market exposes our clients to the most up to date options that the industry offers. Our consultants are certified in the latest AWS and Azure solutions thereby enabling our customers to make the best selection choices.


Workload Migration

The Cavan Group, with over 20 years of experience, is specialized in the migration of critical business systems. From single workloads to full data center migrations, and from cloud to self-hosted, we employ the same highly-structured planning process and methodology.

We believe that a solid foundation is essential for a successful migration engagement, we focus heavily on application discovery and dependency mapping at the outset. We engage directly with application owners and development teams to fully understand the nature, criticality and business impact of the application portfolio.

Our migration event Playbooks/Runbooks are considered the gold standard for the industry and have solidified Cavan’s reputation as the leader in the migration services space.
