Google Cloud Platform Foundational Quickstart

Accelerate your adoption of Google Cloud Platform.

World Wide Technology (WWT) has been designing world-class data processing platforms for nearly three decades and, working with Google Cloud, have packaged that experience in the form of reusable artifacts with best practices "baked in."



Cloud-based solutions drive agility in the fast-paced business world. 

WWT's GCP Foundational Quickstart drives security into the cloud.

The GCP Foundational QuickStart enables customers to immediately find value and begin the use of Google Cloud by building out a new, secure, multi-account GCP environment based on best practices developed by Google Cloud and WWT.

These best practices were established by assisting enterprises in transforming their business models to move to the cloud. This Quickstart aligns security controls, as outlined by NIST and CIS, where applicable. As we continue to expand our service offering more, compliance controls will be added.

The Challenge

Public cloud adoption is more prevalent than ever. 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.

Deploy secure, sustainable, and repeatable Google Cloud environments for clients moving into the cloud.

Modern cloud deployments differ significantly from traditional data center deployments. The cloud security model, coupled with automated deployments, offers a higher level of protection from malicious actors as well as from unintentional configuration and user error.

The Solution

WWT partners with Google Cloud to deliver speed, value, and agility. This cloud solution allows organizations to rapidly and seamlessly deploy Google Cloud's best-of-breed solutions by leveraging Google Cloud's world-class global data centers. Organizations benefit from the best-of-breed solutions, services, and tools that have become a hallmark of Google's technical excellence.

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. This solution creates a solid foundation upon which to build world-class, cloud-based innovation.

The Quickstart focus is on setting up the basic services in the platform around networking, security, and guardrails. As such, each deployment must have:

  • Consistent deployment methodologies.
  • Consistent, minimal, and proven data input from customers to gather minimum technical requirements.
  • Detailed documentation and build artifacts (these should be repeatable and automatable to the furthest extent possible).
  • Extensibility for future engagements, technologies, and managed consumption opportunities.


Other Services

Google Cloud Governance

Cloud governance ensures that the required checks, controls and policies are being put in place to ensure long-term security, manageability, cost minimization and performance for long-term cloud success. Some of the key components that must be considered are: 

Cost Allocation and Tracking

Governance, Security and Compliance Policies

Resource Structuring

Monitoring and Alerting

Infrastructure Automation and Provisioning through IaC (GCP Deployment Manager, HashiCorp Terraform)

Continuity and Disaster Recovery

Google Cloud Contact Center AI (CCAI)

Organizations are increasingly seeking ways to create AI-infused contact centers to improve the customer experience and reduce costs by leveraging virtual assistants to collect caller information and provide faster support. While there are many reasons to implement AI in your contact center, the challenge is in choosing the right solution -- one that will help both your customers and live agents, while seamlessly integrating with your existing contact center technology.
