ITSM Integration

Updating ITSM with every change to your infrastructure is painful. For many, its impossible to keep ITSM and CMDB synced with corporate asset management, ERP, and IT element managers.

Instead of manually updating your tools, use integration to keep your ServiceNOW, Cherwell or other ITSM in sync for continuous integration. ITSM Integration lets you create a single source of truth for your IT assets, CMDB, and policies and propagate changes to other systems.

Also use integration to automate your common ITSM workflows.  Learn more about IT Automation.

Cloud Discovery

Cloud Discovery fills in the knowledge gaps about your current IT and applications. We collect the information needed to identify optimal solutions, estimate costs, and create a deployment and migration roadmap.

IT Discovery: Collects a current picture of your systems, their performance, dependencies, and resource use.

Application Rationalization: We review your application portfolio for technical requirements before developing an architecture. We look at business functions and user experience, communications and infrastructure requirements, and security and compliance. The analysis leads to additional savings by retiring or replacing outdated systems and archiving or deleting old data.

Cloud Architecture
Your cloud architecture should elevate your IT instead of just rehosting it.

We develop your Hybrid Cloud Architecture with the right cloud and traditional solutions for your business.  With your cloud strategy and discovery information, our certified cloud architects develop specific recommendations with costs.  The outcome is a complete hybrid cloud architecture and roadmap, verified by our engineering and security experts.

Design Principles: Use our Cloud Enterprise Architecture services to develop design principles specific to your environment. Design principles are typically based on shared best practices and guide the architecture, development, and operations team as they deploy and evolve the cloud environment.

Architecture Development: Our cloud architects, engineers, and security experts use proven application patterns and use cases to evaluate the right cloud and traditional solutions for your business and your applications. We identify viable options and evaluate against your strategic goals, technical requirements, and business priorities.

Cost Analysis: We perform comparative cost analysis to fit your ROI or TCO model, and budget estimates.

The resulting architecture is the complete solution specifications, topology and adoption roadmap.

Secure Cloud Deployment & Integration
In the cloud, infrastructure becomes code. Our team codes your cloud environment to reduce operating cost, increase security, reliability, performance and agility. We utilize proven design conventions to keep you safe.

Many clients operate in a hybrid cloud environment. They require new expertise in software, DevOps, automation and scripting, APIs and serverless technologies. They also need expertise in traditional hardware technologies. Their cloud networking and security solutions have to integrate their entire hybrid environment.

Our experts have the experience in cloud and hardware solutions to take full advantage of cloud, hybrid cloud, and their legacy hardware. We bring together the product engineers, software engineers, and security experts to correctly design and configure each component.

Cloud Migration Planning & Execution
Cloud migrations are complex because of many IT dependencies.  Careful planning removes risk from the migration process. It also reduces cost and time by deploying it correctly and migrating on schedule.

Application Dependency Analysis: Migration changes the communications between applications, the resources they depend on, and their users. We learn these dependencies to make sure applications don’t break while migrating.  Dependency analysis identifies who and what each application communicates with, and the size, frequency, and characteristics of communication.  We review dependencies in-person to ensure complete and accurate data.

Migration Playbook Development: Migrations playbooks create step-by-step instructions to migrate each application and service.  We identify the right migration strategy for each application – rehost, replatform, refactor, replace, retain or retire. We identify the roles, migration methods, procedures, and test plans. We include rollback procedures to easily recover to the previous state if an issue occurs. Where possible, we leverage proven playbooks and engage expert resources to create new playbooks where needed.

The complete migration plan includes a schedule of activities by migration group, timeframes for each group, and estimated effort and cost.

With the right planning, cloud migration is a low-stress scripted exercise. We provide the oversight and experts to ensure it goes smoothly.

We manage and perform the migrations or support your team.  We have a network of resources and partners to support proprietary applications.  By using our team, your team can focus on their regular jobs without being distracted for an extended time.

Deliverables are specific to your business and environment. We provide templates, scripts, policies and procedures that can be directly implemented by your team or our experts.

Cloud Security Risk Assessment

Security risk assessment is more than a technical review.  It requires expertise for cloud and traditional information security.  A complete assessment also addresses non-technical security controls like policies and procedures, change control, information classification, and human resource management.

The Cloud Architects Group security team includes top certified security experts, cloud architects, and risk auditors.  This complete team delivers comprehensive security risk assessments that match each client’s compliance requirements. Our certified security experts and auditors review your environment against the common security guidelines: NIST, ISO 27001, ISO 27002, CSA, PCI DSS, HIPAA, FedRAMP.

Your security posture extends to your entire IT environment.  Our security risk assessments can span the full scope of your environment – on premises, cloud, and external networks.

Where formal security audits and attestations are needed, Cloud Architects Group provides referrals to accredited auditors for AICPA SOC1 and SOC2, HIPAA, and PCI DSS audits.  We work with your auditor to remediate on your behalf.
