Cloud computing has the potential to transform an organization. eConsulting Partners Global, Inc. (eCPGI) has been at the forefront of developing, adapting and implementing cloud computing procedures, tool sets, and reference architectures for any agencies. Consequently, we have a thorough understanding of how cloud computing can simplify infrastructure management so the organization can focus on enhancing core mission capabilities. eCPGI offers Measured Service Software as a Service (SaaS), a pay-as-you-go model that reduces upfront investment costs or software license expenses; Platform as a Service (PaaS), a computing platform that allows the creation of web applications without the complexity of buying and maintaining the software and underlying infrastructure; and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), in which servers, storage systems, networking equipment, and data center space are pooled to handle workloads.eCPGI is an expert in determining which solution is right for each client’s unique business needs. Because SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS solutions are rapidly evolving, simplicity, transparency, and security within the cloud are critical to organizations’ successful transition to cloud computing. Our cloud computing capabilities include the following essentials:
- A web portal for on-demand self- service to manage infrastructure and equipment inventories, submit payments, and invoice for services.
- Broad network access to critical IT services and software without requiring programs to be installed on local machines.
- Resource pooling so that operating environments can be dynamically assigned and reassigned according to consumer demand.
- Rapid elasticity to provide automated and dynamic scaling of computing resources, cloud-based monitoring of the environment, and the ability to adjust computing resources as required to avoid service-level agreement(SLA) violations.
eCPGI determines clients’ cloud computing needs through a Visioning and Viability Assessment of the organization’s primary business, mission drivers, and IT requirements. The assessment is followed by Strategy and Implementation Planning to identify areas that would benefit cloud computing and create a road map for deploying selected solutions. Deployment involves IT technology evaluation, infrastructure configuration, and platform and services configuration for the cloud solutions. Lastly, the Utilization and Operations phase implements continuous measurement and evaluation of cloud computing costs, performance, and compliance within the organization.
