Strategic Assessment & Recommendations for a Tailored Hybrid Cloud Strategy

A client asked Citihub Digital (a Synechron company) to help define a converged strategy for Cloud infrastructure sourcing, a Data Center strategy and a revised infrastructure for platforms as several buildings were being exited.

Citihub Digital team (a Synechron company) created a comprehensive and customized set of requirements after a thorough assessment of current state: infrastructure assets, applications, lifecycle status, business flows, costs and supporting IT processes.

A business case was constructed based upon the desire for: two neutral co-location facilities to house the hybrid cloud infrastructure, providing good public cloud connectivity options, as well as housing physical and legacy assets; an outsourced hybrid cloud utilizing public cloud for state-less compute (primarily for risk analytics) and development/testing environments; migration of brokerage applications, document management and workflows to SaaS.

/ / IMPLEMENTATION OF CLOUD PLATFORM SERVICES

Citihub Digital’s delivery of this program included:

  • After internal acceptance of the strategy plan, Citihub Digital (a Synechron company) led the procurement and set-up of the co-location facilities, and the consolidation of physical and legacy assets over a 12-month period
  • Where possible during the migrations, compute functions were implemented using public cloud
  • In parallel, a fast track sourcing exercise was conducted to identify, select and contract with a hybrid cloud provider
  • Citihub Digital (a Synechron company) is currently leading the implementation of the hybrid cloud solution in conjunction with the provider, driving the adoption by leading the application development teams through migration (360 applications), and delivering the target operating model
