At a time when society and the market are becoming increasingly more digitalized, organizations need to transform digitally. For enterprises to operate like digital natives, their organizations need to meet certain criteria: they need to be flexible and responsive to changes in demand, be able to adapt services quickly, be accessible from anywhere and via every channel, and they need to provide continuity and stability. One of the ways to achieve this is to use the right cloud solution.
With an effective cloud strategy, organizations can choose the optimal cloud mix, and thus maximize the benefits while keeping risks and costs at an acceptable level. What exactly this optimal cloud mix is, depends on the added value an organization wants to deliver to its customers, the products and services that constitute the basis for this, and the existing IT landscape and regulatory environment. These factors are usually different for each service, domain and sometimes even for each application. Moreover, they also change over time. The strategy of ‘public cloud unless’ is often an oversimplification of reality. A hybrid cloud strategy takes a broader and deeper view, and differentiates based on the products and services within an organization.
Given that every organization has its own optimal and unique cloud mix customized to its needs, Quint has introduced various landing zones which we use to define an optimum cloud strategy. We set down the landing zones where business processes and the underlying applications are currently running and what the most suitable landing zone is for tomorrow and beyond. We also look at investments already made and at possible (or impossible) migrations. In this way, we find out how your organization can make optimal use of the different types of cloud, and how these options will develop over time. This enables you to make mid-term and long-term decisions, for example, about investments.

You are guaranteed that our advice and support is 100% in the best interests of your goals and business objectives. With a cloud strategy provided by Quint, your organization will be in control of the application of the right cloud concepts.
Cloud is an umbrella term and hybrid cloud is a complex subject. For this reason, we first invest time in creating a common frame of reference. Once we have drawn up a common frame of reference, there should also be complete transparency regarding where your organization currently is in terms of the use of the various landing zones and the related possibilities (and impossibilities).
We examine your major business processes and the related characteristics of the organization. We also closely examine the underlying applications portfolio. This gives us insight into what can easily go to a different form of cloud, and where that is difficult or virtually impossible. Are there alternatives available in the desired cloud and do the benefits outweigh the disadvantages?
We set down what the strategy options are, in light of the current situation, the business goals and the possibilities (or impossibilities) regarding the IT landscape. A picture emerges of the cloud roadmap and what components can be moved at what moment. In the final step, we look at the next steps that should be taken in order to realize the desired cloud mix and migrate the applications.
