The Right Advice
BUI’s Cloud Discovery Offering is an affordable and structured engagement, consisting of workshops with key stakeholders to determine whether your people, environment and systems are cloud ready.
Cloud Discovery combines different sessions addressing the business, technical and system needs, using a defined framework guiding discussions within the following three critical segments: people, technology and processes, and the impact cloud adoption will have on your business.
BUI drives discussions with selected teams within your business to determine the cloud readiness of each individual business unit. Existing processes and solutions are identified and mapped to potential cloud solutions or services. An initial cloud strategy is developed, reviewed and finalised, building a cloud adoption roadmap in line with your business needs and priorities.
