Dell EMC Cloud Suitability

With Dell EMC Cloud Application Profiling services cloud suitability answers two critical questions. Which cloud option is best suited for my application and how readily will the application move to the new cloud platform. Leveraging findings from disposition analysis, we dive more deeply into application workload characteristics to determine the best cloud model; public, private or hybrid. A weighting of business and technical rules is applied and combined with a composite workload suitability score resulting in a Cloud Fit Index rating. The index ranges from Excellent — indicating that a choice of cloud options will be suitable and the level of effort required to move to the cloud is minimal; to poor designated as unfeasible or not cost—effective to move to the cloud. Aggregating results across the application portfolio provides a powerful strategic plan for future cloud computing.

Looking at both business and IT alignment, we determine how best to invest in each application. The four investment categories used for traditional applications are build new/modernize, migrate, retire or retain. Applications that align with modernize include those that provide high value to the future plans of the organization and offer low risk. Applications that are tagged to be migrated are running on outdated technology or are being offered by high risk vendors.

There are applications that may have weak or missing business functionality or run on a weak technology platform that you will want to retire. Finally, there are applications that you will want to retain as they are inexpensive to run. All of these characteristics are tied to a rules engine, automating and reducing the required time and resources.
