Your Business is Not the Same as Every Other Business
So why would we start with any assumptions about it?
Step Zero provides the information that you need to know in order to start to plan what to do next
Providing SMEs and Enterprise with independent expertise across the Business and Technology perspectives of Cloud Computing, we are on a mission to enable good decisions and position better-informed businesses to get real value from what Cloud has to offer
Our approach is to dig a little deeper and help ensure, before too many steps are taken, that you take the right ones – and to identify those small details which, on closer look, might or might not be so small, after all, building from paths including:
- should that application be moved or replaced?
- considering current investments, is the timing clever to do this now ?
- what new risks (financial, security, compliance, etc.) might cloud introduce (if not done correctly)?
- what are you really expecting Cloud Computing to do for your business?
- what are the real or hidden costs and impacts of what you’re planning?
