When an application is initiated for onboarding to the hybrid, private or public cloud, we start by discovering its current state. We jointly explore the desired high-level desired outcome and focus on the objectives from a business perspective. Subsequently, we will dive deeper into the actual current workloads for implementation and configuration.
In defining the ‘To Be’ situation, Sentia will - in close cooperation with your stakeholders - gradually identify the gaps that must be bridged to transfer from the current situation to the desired situation. Sentia will perform structured checks to verify alignment with the requirements on a business level and security level. The ‘gaps’ identified will be studied in function of the desired outcome.
In this phase, we will deliver a high-level cloud infrastructure design. The design is fully compliant with business and security requirements, includes a statement of required work with corresponding planning, a target operating model and a tailored business case.
Our architects will start developing processes and tools: tailored CI/CD pipelines, infra-as-code templates, the platform itself (including Landing Zones), refactoring or (re)designing applications if needed, and lay the operational fundament in terms of Service Level targets.
Now the actual transformation is starting! Using high-end tests, infra-as-code and under extensive verification of the desired outcome, the developed items will be deployed.
Experts lead the way
Using an Agile approach combined with a short Sprint cadence, you are still in control of what is happening, while Sentia’s experts lead the way. Our delivery teams consist of a variety of expert profiles, such as: Agile coaches, cloud architects, software engineers, technical cloud consultants, cloud engineers and technical application engineers.
The next step: managed services
After deploying your application in the (hybrid) cloud, it is time to take the next step. Digital transformation never stops, therefore Sentia will use the same 5D approach to continuously improve the IT landscape, application by application. While executing the digital transformation, modern application management ensures operational challenges are automated in parallel. We will:
Prevent incidents and control stability and performance with our Application Performance Management services
Implement automated incident remediation and self-service maintenance
Automate recurring changes
Make sure you have the time, resources and opportunity to increase innovation and lead your industry
As said, every cloud journey starts with Defining the situation to-be and Discovering the current state. Let us assess your application landscape – no strings attached - and prove ourselves!
You have a vision. We help you spark it into action.
