Cloud Readiness Assessment
A cloud readiness assessment is a process that helps organizations determine their level of readiness to move to the cloud. It typically involves evaluating the organization’s current IT environment, its business goals, technical landscape, and its security and compliance requirements. The assessment can help identify any gaps or risks that need to be addressed before moving to the cloud.
At RTS we don’t start with the presumption that
cloud is the answer, we address the true need of our clients.
80% of organizations say they have a cloud strategy, but only 30% are fully cloud-ready. This means that most organizations are still in the early stages of their cloud journey and have a lot of work to do to get fully ready for the cloud. We can help!
