Promises of the Cloud

Companies on a digital journey often see the need to modernise their infrastructure, and cloud migration is likely to go hand in hand.

The promises of the cloud include aspects like:

  • Improved Time to market, Flexibility, Innovation and Sustainability
  • Reduced Cost
  • Increased Security, Scalability and Reliability
  • And Netlight has a long history of successfully helping our clients realize these promises.

Netlight can help businesses with everything from Strategy to Implementation

  • Strategy: The hosting strategy defines the guiding principles for how the infrastructure should be constructed to support the business goals and what services should be used to reach those goals. The strategy also considers important factors such as cost, security, and maintainability.
  • Transformation: Move and transform functionality and services from current state to selected platform requires a plan for how to get there in the most optimal way while considering risk, cost, and time-to-market. Adoption or as is migrations are different paths forwards that each organisations need to evaluate.
  • Governance: Governance is a set of mechanisms and processes to maintain control over applications and resources in a hosting environment. It involves setting strategic priorities and ensuring compliance with company policies and regulatory obligations.
  • Sustainability: A sustainable hosting environment is generating a low carbon footprint and environmental impact while still supporting the digital transformation of organizations. The sustainability of the infrastructure is connected to multiple factors such as amount the resources used, the energy required for those services, the energy mix of the electric grid serving the hosting datacenters etc.
  • Solution Architecture: The solution architecture of the infrastructure and the hosted applications needs to be implemented using recommended best practices and design patterns that supports the applications to be operated according to modern standards that's secure, efficient, resilient, high-performing, and cost-effective.
  • Implementation: The migration implementation should be aligned to the specific strategy and transformation plan and can be both lift-and-shift and cloud native adoptions and will be tailored to the specific environment. Netlight can support businesses no matter from which phase they start off from.
