Cloud

The capital markets are witnessing a sea change with regards to cloud adoption. The need for “infinite compute” has not diminished and regulatory pressures means that big data and the analytics wrapper around this is are of paramount importance in today’s world. Until recently, there was a relatively wholesale rejection of the public cloud in this industry; but increased security, accelerated provisioning, cost reductions (not solely linked to storage) and flexible scaling capabilities make the cloud an attractive proposition.

Our services

At FWD View, we appreciate that the cloud represents cultural challenges as well as technical. Understanding which applications and services are cloud ready, proving that and then delivering the solution reflects a set of services that spans both advisory and delivery:

  • Cloud readiness assessment – Working closely with our clients, we can assess everything from enterprise cloud strategy to specific applications or services, understanding and advising on any potential architectural, technical or development issues
  • Cloud Proof of Concept – Establishing a service within an application in the cloud. Metrics can be drawn throughout the process to ensure the predicted benefits are likely to be realised. Equally, this process can ensure technology and processes are in place for a wider application migration
  • Systems migration – Either in an advisory, collaborative or managed capacity, FWD View can migrate applications and services fully into the cloud
