Cloud Services

Private, public and hybrid cloud services

Simplicity is one of many benefits offered by cloud computing, but migrating to cloud is not simple. Only when you understand the cloud-readiness of your infrastructure and workloads can you plan the right cloud strategy. Only when you’ve assessed the many routes to public, private or hybrid cloud can you make the right investment. And only with specialist skills can you smoothly and securely migrate workloads to cloud, or deploy your own cloud solutions.

GBM can partner with you at every step of this journey, with a complete portfolio of services that help you master cloud. We have supported many of the region’s leading businesses in their digital transformation journeys. We also offer unrivalled knowledge of, and partnerships within, the local cloud computing market. We can help you take your next step towards cloud with total confidence.

  • Infrastructure Assessment

    Is your digital infrastructure truly ready to support a smooth, valuable and risk-free transition to cloud? While many service providers are offering compelling benefits in order to win your business, there is much to consider before you commit to cloud. How will your infrastructure cope with increased data transfer requirements? Where does cloud fit into your disaster recovery strategy? Are your workloads ready for cloud, and how will you migrate them? Only with a thorough, independent assessment of your infrastructure can you answer questions like these, and GBM has the expertise and knowledge of regional needs to conduct it.

    Our cloud maturity discovery initiative gives you a solid foundation for your cloud strategy, helping you to:

    • Know your cloud strengths and weaknesses with a holistic view of the current infrastructure and its maturity level
    • Testing to reveal hidden challenges such as scalability issues, disaster recovery needs, the impact of demand spikes, problematic workloads, and ensuring your on-premises resources map to cloud resources.
    • Build the right infrastructure transformation strategy, mapped to your business goals and workloads

    With GBM, modernizing your infrastructure to prepare for cloud doesn’t have to involve guesswork, risk or ineffective solutions. With our complete range of assessment, optimization and planning services, you have verified knowledge that will take your business forward.

  • Application Assessment

    Modernizing applications, through containerization and use of microservices, is helping businesses to innovate faster and deliver new cloud applications and services with extreme efficiency. Yet it’s vital to first assess your existing applications to discover their maturity level and suitability for modernization, as well as the business value modernization can deliver. With our application discovery and optimization service, GBM can help you build the right modernization plan and maximize your return in investment.

    With a comprehensive assessment of your applications’ design, resources, dependencies and performance, we can help you:

    • Know your opportunities, including which mission-critical applications can better meet your needs through modernization and cloud deployment
    • Prioritize which applications to modernize and migrate to cloud, and which to keep on-premises
    • Improve performance, security, availability and reliability of your applications with modernization processes built on best-practice design pillars

    If you want to take advantage of new application design, development and delivery methods that can make your business more agile and efficient, GBM has the expertise and services to support your entire modernization journey.

  • Cloud Readiness Assessment

    Is your business ready to adopt cloud? What value can cloud bring to your business, and what is the right cloud strategy to help you realize that value? Only with a comprehensive economic assessment of your current infrastructure and workloads can you answer these questions and take the next step in your journey to cloud. With deep expertise and a locally-based cloud services team, GBM assessment services can increase your understanding and build the right strategy.

    Gain the clarity and insight you need to:

    • Assess new cloud options and existing deployments, with a detailed report that shows performance and cost-optimization possibilities
    • Protect regulatory compliance with a comprehensive assessment of your requirements and how cloud deployments can meet them
    • Maximize return on investment with TCO and ROI analysis that shows you which workloads offer the most value when migrated to cloud

    Economic assessment can not only help you decide which workloads to move to cloud – it can also help you make the business case for cloud by identifying potential cost savings and efficiencies that could self-fund your digital transformation project. GBM has the technical expertise and knowledge of the local business environment to help you prepare the right strategy.

  • Public Cloud Deployment

    If your organization’s journey to public cloud is partly about creating value and increasing cost-efficiency, make sure technical challenges don’t slow you down during deployment.

  • Cloud Migration Services

    Migrating workloads to public cloud usually comes with the risk of disruption due to technical issues, loss of critical data, and employee downtime due to a long migration process. With the right migration services partner, you can mitigate these risks and take a smoother, less-costly journey to public cloud.
