Recognizing there is no single path to the cloud and choices abound for those looking to migrate, we help companies cut through confusion surrounding cloud and find answers to their most pressing questions. Cognizant Cloud Steps Transformation Framework accelerates time to value from cloud by combining our transformation process with prebuilt solution blueprints, made‑for‑the‑cloud tools and options for public, private or hybrid cloud landing zones.
We apply a proven transformation process that employs the right checks and balances as enterprises journey to a future‑state cloud model. The process has four broad steps: Assess and plan, Set up, Migrate and Manage. An initial vision clarification workshop can lay the foundation for the transformation process.
Cognizant Cloud Steps Transformation Framework includes prebuilt solution blueprints that are designed to accelerate the adoption of cloud for specific workloads. Multiple blueprints are available for application migration, optimization of engineering processes and blueprints for driving business innovation.
We leverage best‑in‑class, in‑house developed tools as well as leading third‑party tools covering all cloud technology approaches. The tools include cloud assessment, hybrid cloud governance, cloud application migration and hybrid cloud management.
We appreciate that industries, clients and business models differ and so do their cloud requirements. Accordingly, Cognizant Cloud Steps Transformation Framework fits whatever deployment model is best suited for your needs. Available options including building a private cloud within customer-provided infrastructure; public or private cloud based solution offered by third parties; or using Cognizant‑hosted and managed best‑in‑class data centers that offer dedicated private cloud infrastructure.
