SIL's extensive experience with disruptive technologies over the last four decades has resulted in large amounts of data on how disruption affects organizations. This allows SIL to provide concrete information on both challenges and opportunities, risk and benefit, irrespective of the exact technology. The impact of cloud computing is one of the current waves of this type of technology.
SIL’s Area Readiness Evaluation – Cloud (ARE – Cloud) examines the strategic positioning of the organization in reference to this specific technology. Each ARE assessment is for an individual emerging or disruptive technology, so that companies can focus on a strategic approach to move from their current position to a more leveraged and competitive one. An ARE – Cloud study provides clear and concise information on the organizational strengths and weaknesses, challenges and opportunities, as well as a specific list of actionable steps. The result steps include estimated costs, timing and associated critical actions for moving to a cloud architecture.
This assessment requires minimal client resources and time (hours rather than weeks) to provide needed data. SIL has unmatched speed of response, with the results produced in less than the time required by any other approach. SIL focuses on the production of rapid analysis without building an army of consultants, and instead, leverages a growing set of artificial intelligence tools. SIL's 35+ years of project experience and extensive database (200+ PB) provides detailed workload and plan analysis for thousands of world-wide customers.
SIL's ARE - Cloud service articulates an organization's current posture on cloud computing, as well as forecasts risk, exposure and critical amendment points. With this review, your organization can better leverage the emerging or disruptive technology of cloud computing, when your organization is considering moving to the cloud.
