BUSINESS BENEFITS

From enablement to modernisation and security through to operational governance we have every step of your cloud journey covered.

Enablement

At first the concept of Cloud may be challenging for many. We will work with you to prepare you for the transition to Cloud based-IT. Using our AtoZ Cloud Methodology, we can effectively guide you on the journey, beginning with a Cloud Readiness Assessment and Business Case Development, establishing a Cloud Vision, Strategy & Roadmap, ensuring that you have a highly secure and automated initial setup through using HeleCloud’s Landing Zone Service to Mass Migration of your workloads, aligned to established AWS Best Practices, such as the Well Architected Framework and continually ensuring that Security Best Practices are followed. Having the right skillsets and resources internally from day one is a common challenge but through the use of HeleCloud Expert as a Service, we are able to provide the right team to support you initially and through knowledge transfer and training get your existing team scaled up and skilled as required.

HeleCloud Enables Playzido to Build Their Platform on AWS

Delivering a Secure and Robust Cloud Automation Platform

Modernisation

Whether your applications are in the Cloud or in the process of moving to it, you can start to take full advantage of the benefits, which AWS can bring.

Imagine being able to make updates to your infrastructure and applications and have them tested and applied automatically, being able to release your code in minutes. By applying the same engineering discipline that you use for application code to your entire environment you can define your entire workload as code and update it with code allowing for evolutionary architectures, where modernisation becomes a continuous process rather than an event. Through the use of Infrastructure as Code, Immutable Infrastructure and CI/CD Pipelines, HeleCloud can help you achieve this.

Optimal state is reached when your DevOps team is firing on all cylinders, delivering frequent, small, reversible changes through an integrated CI/CD pipeline. But where are you now and how do you reach the optimal state? In this fast-moving area, our DevOps Maturity Assessment evaluates your current practices, processes, technologies, culture and security against current best practice giving you a vision for modernisation and actionable recommendations to get you there.

For wholescale re-architecting efforts we can build fully-fledged teams to work with you to re-design, re-build and deploy using cloud native technologies such as containerisation and serverless applications, alleviating your constraints when moving to AWS.

Delivering a Secure and Robust Cloud Automation Platform

Security

Cloud, and the AWS platform in particular, provide an unprecedented level of security through the visibility, auditability and control of access to all infrastructure components and Cloud-native applications. Yet such a powerful and natively secure platform still requires organisations to architect solutions on it, configure it and manage it in a secure fashion; this requires a holistic approach focused on people, processes and technologies. Our Security and Compliance Assessment addresses these three facets providing a robust security posture underpinned with good governance. We benchmark your security against a range of industry standards and provide actionable recommendations.

The Security and Compliance Assessment is not a goal in itself but the start, leading on from the recommendations you can carry out the remediations to your processes, technology and people or we can jointly address the remediation as part of a combined team. During the remediation, HeleCloud can provide a proactive Security and Compliance Managed Service and once the remediation is complete, you can take over or allow us to continue. Thus, allowing you to focus on your core business in the knowledge and comfort that security threats are being actively managed on your behalf.

Operational Governance

Without operational governance, you will quickly find your Cloud environment spiralling out of control. As you measure your teams less on perfection and more on speed and time-to-market, this mentality is at odds with traditional compliance checks and security processes. You need a way to embed and adopt best practices in your organisation without hindering you Cloud adoption. Our range of well-defined, pre-packaged engagements give you assurance around both the technology and your governance processes. Working in collaboration with your teams to ensure that knowledge is transferred and embedded in your organisation, we make sure your governance is fit for the new world of Cloud.

Early in your Cloud adoption you will want to make use of our Cloud Centre of Excellence engagement. If you have workloads already running on AWS we can run a broad Well Architected Review and Remediation service, or dive more deeply into a Cost Optimisation or Performance Optimisation service.
