Our solution

Infosys leveraged our SMART EA framework to develop a cloud strategy, application portfolio assessment and recommendations for cloud adoption for the key lines of business. During the planning phase, Infosys leveraged assessment accelerators for application code analysis to minimize the risks of migration and to develop a migration plan. This significantly improved the accuracy of recommendations on migration complexity, efforts, costs and suggested migration plans.

After the planning phase, Infosys

  • Evaluated and recommended the right cloud strategy for a portfolio of applications taking into consideration business, technical, security, risk and regulatory compliance requirements
  • Calculated cost savings with the recommended cloud deployment model.
  • Create a re-usable framework for cloud assessment based on the client’s application portfolio to be applied internally for other portfolios in future
  • Developed a re-usable quantitative assessment and ROI model and ROI that was re-used for other portfolio of applications by the client internally
