Cloud Design and Architecture (CD&A) is an in depth IT scoping and review process that bridges the gap between your on-premise Oracle and Microsoft systems, and the cloud to give your business the agility it needs at the price it wants.
Cloud can be a fluffy subject exacerbated by the myriad of options available including Public, Private, Hybrid, IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS. The CD&A translates the options available to move your Oracle and Microsoft applications into Cloud.
More importantly the CD&A process focuses on understanding, capturing and illustrating return-on-investments and giving confirmation that the IT project is good business. The output is a tangible document that not only can be used to justify stakeholder endorsement but also becomes a working reference document throughout the deployment.
By undergoing a Cloud Design and Architecture (CD&A) review, you are ensuring your Cloud project is scoped correctly to vendor and industry best practices. This is of paramount importance as it guarantees best-of-breed and best fit technologies are implemented and aligned to your unique business processes with a guaranteed list of return-on-investments.
