Benefit from Migrating to the Cloud

Deliver Value for Your Business Faster

Need assistance with the complexity of optimizing data centers and private clouds? Or with deploying hybrid-ready private clouds? Cisco cloud professionals can help both Enterprises and Service Providers.

From deciding if you should buy or build all the way to application migration, our Cisco Cloud Consulting Services experts support you in developing cloud strategy, extending your capabilities, and with implementation and deployment plans. We will help you understand the opportunities of cloud for your business, which likely include improved agility and support for growth and innovation.

Through our extensive cloud engagements, we highly recommend you start by discovering any "rogue" cloud initiatives within your company.

Gain Cloud Visibility and Governance

Do you or your customers, if you are a Service Provider, have shadow and rogue cloud efforts today? Concerned with customer data, security risks, and the hidden cloud costs associated with ungoverned public cloud usage? With Cisco's Cloud Consumption Service, we put those fears to rest by gathering Cloud Service Provider usage data across an entire organization and identifying redundant cloud services, potential risks, and cloud usage trends. On average, customers discover 5 to 10 times the cloud services than expected!

Having gained visibility into companywide cloud efforts, next steps revolve around developing an effective Cloud strategy.
