There are many paths to the cloud. But to gain the efficiency, scalability and agility required to drive innovation, organizations need an anchor partner with cloud-first experience.

A leading airline wanted cloud adoption direction, including the selection of vendors to support a hybrid cloud journey. Mindtree created a cloud reference architecture covering decision criteria, TCO, governance and management. Mindtree also elaborated standard enterprise reference architectures for cloud-first enablement and created evaluation criteria for vendor selection. The Mindtree solution provided the airlines with clear decision criteria for selecting private and public cloud platform providers and a cloud management platform.
Determining the proper sequence of applications or workloads in an organization’s complete IT portfolio is critical to a successful cloud-first journey. However, many organizations require assistance to gain a single view of their application infrastructure and identify and prioritize which enterprise applications to move to the cloud. In addition, business leaders need help justifying investments to cloud service providers and understanding important migration considerations.
To help organizations understand their IT portfolio, Mindtree creates a single view of a company’s application infrastructure before identifying and prioritizing enterprise systems to move to the cloud. Our Portfolio Analysis services helps companies align cloud strategy with the overall shift in digital strategy, determine total cost of ownership and IT budgets, and justify cloud service provider investments while ensuring a strategic approach to cloud.
A well-known U.S. business school wanted to adopt Amazon Web Services (AWS) for hosting a highly available application ecosystem for students, faculty and alumni. They needed a partner to assess migrating their existing IT portfolio to the cloud within a phased migration plan while maintaining high security. Mindtree created a hybrid cloud reference architecture and developed a migration plan based on application complexity, business need and customer preferences. The school moved from a Capex to Opex model, improved application availability and created a foundation for future application development.
