Merlin leads software cloud-readiness efforts for our customers using our dedicated approach to outcomes-driven UX architecture. By couching cloud decisions in the context of a solid understanding of broader business objectives and longer-term plans, Merlin provides thought leadership on cloud-readiness.
Our approach equips our customers with the information they need to make well-informed decisions about their cloud-enabled IT and application investments. By thoroughly analyzing application options (custom, COTS, GOTS) and matrix options across key variables (cost, schedule, risk, compliance, flexibility, cloud readiness, platform options, and functionality) we translate the complex into actionable knowledge related to deploying and/or moving applications to the cloud.
Cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings exist in a multi-variable solution space that must consider an organization’s operational objectives, their existing infrastructure, their short term and long term IT budget, their evolving workforce requirements, and their need to adhere to compliance standards. Additionally, cloud readiness analyses include the risk/reward considerations for each architectural layer, from infrastructure to data management to platform/BI capabilities and finally to the applications themselves. Our engineers will help make sense of cloud offerings as they relate to each customer’s unique needs.
