Cloud Awareness: With the various options available, its hard to determine where to start. We provide education and awareness on current features of all major cloud product vendors. We work with you to determine the “as-a-Service” best-suited for your needs:
- Software as a Service (SaaS) for the rapid time-to-use of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems
- Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) for full control of processes and applications
- Platform as a Service (PaaS) to balance between the two
Cloud Readiness: We provide strategic insight to help determine your business destination, anticipating overall impacts and challenges moving to the cloud. We deliver roadmaps, built around the “to be” structure of your organization, describing which of your processes and services to deploy to the cloud (and which not to), the transformation of IT governance to cloud realities, and the phased steps to arrive at these destinations.
Easy-to-procure and easy-to-maintain does not always translate into easy-to-implement. Our cloud implementations clearly define the tasks, ownerships and responsibilities needed to run a functional environment. We bring the deep knowledge required to offer blended solutions of on-premise and cloud needs. Our strong and lengthy partnerships afford us access to the latest offerings from the broad range of cloud service and application providers.

Microsoft Cloud – IaaS, SaaS, and PaaS: Azure, Dynamics 365, Dynamics AX, Dynamics CRM Online, SharePoint Online, Office 365, Analytics
A common early cloud budgeting error is assuming little to no maintenance costs, especially when selecting a fully-vendor hosted PaaS deployment. For decades, Sierra Systems has provided Application Management Services to clients using on premise or cloud services, with optimized service management methodologies to reduce overall cost. Our knowledgeable professionals can take responsibility for governance and security, operations (including monitoring of performance management), and even oversee the customizations and integrations your solution has with the cloud itself.
