"I needed a roadmap tool to get an overview of our IT infrastructure. Documenting a dynamic server landscape that is continuously changing at a high frequency is a lot of work. Therefore, it was quite a relief to come across CLOUDEON’s CLOUD REALITY, which helped us move forward in that area"

Challenge

 

 

The development department at Danske Fragtmænd faced the challenge of adopting new development methods and tools, while also transforming its own applications to SAAS and PAAS services in the cloud. For their infrastructure Danske Fragtmænd considered various options, but lacked an overview of their own IT landscape (AS-IS overview), which needed in order to build a business case for going to the cloud.

Solution

 

Cloudeon introduced Danske Fragtmænd to our infrastructure analysis platform ‘OpsAi‘. With the results we illustrated the costs they could expect from Cloud consumption on a monthly basis, as well as the costs that would be associated with migration and transformation to the public cloud. CLOUDEON prepared a technical report and a cloud business case which provided an overview of the process of actually moving parts of Danske Fragtmænd’s IT operations to the Cloud.

 

 

Solutions summarized:

  • OpsAI installation
  • Business case presentation

Outcome

 

Based on the solutions provided, Danske Fragtmænd were handed a factual overview of their current IT-estate and workloads. This provided the foundation needed for a business case to migrate to Cloud. 
By building their case on exact, real-time data, Danske Fragtmænd were able to design their transition to Cloud to fit the needs of both IT, business and customers.
