Cloud Adoption Strategy


Cloud computing continues to perplex many organizations, but stands to offer tremendous business benefits if adopted in a planned way. Kaavo’s Cloud Adoption Strategy service aims to dispel the myths associated with cloud computing by working with you to understand your business and clearly identify how you can adopt the cloud. The end result is a tailored cloud adoption plan through which your business can obtain measurable benefits. This includes understanding your current business goals and the IT infrastructure currently in place to support those goals, identifying applications which are the best candidates for the cloud, and constructing a roadmap to incrementally allow you to adopt cloud computing with measurable results.
