WWT MULTICLOUD CONSULTING
Simplifying cloud complexities, maximizing business value
A multicloud world requires a multifaceted approach, one that spans on-prem, off-prem and public cloud environments.
The tools, services and geographic flexibility of the cloud give organizations the ability to become more agile, innovate faster and expand into new markets.
Organizations that can unravel the complexities of where best to place applications and data can build and deploy applications more efficiently, apply AI and machine learning to data sets, and roll out new applications at global scale.
- Speed application time-to-market with a well-rationalized cloud services strategy
- Simplify and secure applications through automated infrastructure and delivery
- Enable innovation with a best-practices service architecture
- Reduce costs by effectively using multiple cloud services
What We Do
Cloud is more than an investment in technology. It’s an investment in agility and innovation across IT and the business. For cloud to succeed, cultural changes must occur — from establishing product ownership to converging IT silos to upskilling staff.
That’s why WWT takes a cloud smart approach. One that aligns technology to business goals and ensures the right people and processes are in place for organizations to maintain momentum during their cloud journey.
How We Help
Vision & Strategy
Given the overwhelming number of tools and services for workloads on premises, off premises and in multiple public clouds, it’s no surprise that organizations often struggle to solidify a cloud strategy. Our multicloud consultants sit down with you to understand your business vision. Then they develop a strategy that incorporates the right mix of cloud tools and services to make that vision a reality.

Enablement & Migration
We take the risk out of workload and application migration. Our AWS, Azure and GCP architects can create a secure environment in any cloud, while our data center and collocation experts can architect non-public cloud environments for optimal performance. But the right architecture is only part of the puzzle. We bring in networking, data management, security and application development specialists who make sure newly architected environments are supported by the right people, processes and third-party tools.
Management & Optimization
Cloud is a continuum that requires constant attention to detail to get the most from your investment. We help you gain a better understanding of best practices for cloud operations, from capacity and compliance monitoring to cloud automation strategies. We also help you simplify cloud consumption. Benefit from reduced manual processes, DevOps methodologies and more time for IT to focus on innovation.
