Google Cloud Foundations Briefing

1 hour
Successfully moving to a public cloud is a long-term investment in time, planning, effort and adoption and requires new paradigms and tools. Organizations that embark on this public cloud journey must also be prepared to meet the technical and business challenges presented by regulatory requirements, legacy applications, latency and data sovereignty, among others. Many companies start off with a DIY cloud strategy. They typically end up spinning cycles architecting and rearchitecting because they weren’t aware of all the pitfalls or how the various cloud components work together. This Google Cloud offering explores solutions to help identify which GCP services have the capabilities best suited for an organization's unique needs. With a focus on discussion and whiteboarding, this is your chance to get your specific questions answered.

Goals & Objectives

In this briefing, we will discuss the capabilities and benefits of a Google Cloud. We work with your key stakeholders to understand your long-term vision and strategy in migrating and managing applications to Google Cloud. We will discuss best practices for the various frameworks and policies to deliver and run an optimized cloud environment, the roles and resources necessary to manage an enterprise-class cloud environment, and the technological considerations involved. 

We will make recommendations on next phases for your cloud journey for which we can continue to provide guidance and support. By programmatically deploying a standardized foundational infrastructure (Infrastructure as Code, or IaC) on Google Cloud, WWT aligns GCP best practices with your specific organizational and security requirements for work in the cloud.
