Gain an in-depth understanding of what’s really going on in your hybrid cloud
Ensono’s Hybrid Cloud Assessment gives you an accurate and comprehensive data set across your entire IT estate of what you have, what you need and where you’re going. This kind of deep dive intelligence, essential but often overlooked, is the first and most critical part of your transformation journey, whether you are retiring a data center, migrating applications to a multi-cloud environment or conducting an entire infrastructure overhaul. Using best-in-class discovery tools and application workshopping, we establish which applications you’re currently running, how each application communicates with the rest of your IT environment, learn who is responsible for maintaining it, and determine actionable recommendations that help you meet your business goals.

Reduce risk, reduce costs
Organizations often struggle to take a methodical approach to designing an agile, secure and optimized hybrid cloud transformation. By partnering with our expert Advisory + Consulting team, who will assess and map out your existing IT environment, you can reduce risks in any major transformation project by uncovering inefficiencies and hidden operational dependencies and identifying opportunities to optimize costs.
Free capital and resources
Our consultants lay the foundation for your digital transformation and migration projects, informing purchasing, staffing, timeline, rationalization and consolidation efforts. This allows your organization to start focusing on differentiating value-add initiatives rather than the undifferentiated heavy lifting of day-to-day management.
A bird’s eye view
Most organizations think they have a clear and on-going understanding of their existing networks, infrastructure and applications, but they don’t. Over time, it’s easy to lose track as applications proliferate, platforms morph, and staff moves on. Ensono’s Hybrid Cloud Assessment serves as your wakeup call: it illuminates hidden dependencies and your spider webs of IT complexity to help you accurately visualize your current state, make informed data-driven decisions, and develop a digital transformation roadmap.
No matter your goals, a clear and accurate picture of your existing IT is the first step. Armed with data and insights, we’ll help you achieve your transformational goals.
Escalating IT spend
The cost to manage your sprawling hybrid IT continues to rise as your budgets are squeezed. You are under intense pressure to add new digital capabilities, secure your network from cyberthreats, and speed your journey to the cloud. Ensono’s hybrid consulting practice identifies opportunities to optimize your IT spend, an essential process to help propel your transformation.
There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to your migration journey. We not only look at whether you can migrate your applications to the cloud, but whether you should. As champions of hybrid IT, we analyze which workloads are best suited for which platform, hosting and ownership models. In a hybrid cloud world, some apps are still better suited to run on premises, while others are best migrated to a private or public cloud or refactored to virtualized or cloud native future states.
By identifying communication flows, we can also identify the source of information entering and leaving the servers to help your organization remain secure and in compliance.
Hybrid IT assessments
Our consultants begin by examining your current state across platforms.
IT asset inventory
We’ll provide an inventory that reveals server and local disk space. This includes IP information and warranty status, SQL server instance, database and usage report, and web service discovery so you can make more informed decisions.
Application dependency mapping
To better understand how your applications and networks are communicating, we create a visualization that reveals your greatest risk points and provide actionable recommendations on next steps.
Target design and migration planning
Once we’ve done our due diligence to uncover any problems or opportunities, we look at your ideal state and begin laying out a plan to migrate your workflows to save time and costs, and improve the stability of your IT environment.
Ensono’s Hybrid Cloud Assessment is a broad inquiry to gather the necessary intelligence to inform decisions and build a transformation roadmap. Depending on your needs, Ensono’s consultants can conduct specific assessments as standalone projects as well, including assessments for data centers, cloud, latency, dependency, cybersecurity and more.
