The Business Value of CloudKitect

The Steps (and Costs) to Provisioning on Your Own

Getting an infrastructure up and ready for your digital application is rarely a turnkey proposition for many businesses. There are more than a handful of steps involved in preparing a scalable, secure, and compliant infrastructure and at each critical stage, organizations are challenged by cost overruns and lost time in getting their application into the market.

  • Hiring and Onboarding:  Cloud Architects and DevOps professionals well versed in provisioning infrastructure are often required in successful digital transformation journeys in order to keep things moving along.  This requires companies to hire, onboard, and retain these key experts to ensure they have a team readily available to address needs at both launch and an ongoing basis.
  • Research:  Based on the business model and the industry that the application intends to play in, there needs to be a significant amount of research done to provision the right infrastructure.  Establishing requirements around Computing, Database, Ingress/Egress flows, and other key security requirements for the application need to be well researched in advance
  • Design:  How will it all work together?  Designing and mapping out an efficient and scalable architecture should be done to ensure the various components identified for the infrastructure will work cohesively to support the full vision for the app.
  • Automation:  There are over 200 services offered by AWS platform, identifying the right components for your infrastructure is challenging and time consuming. Companies and Cloud architects expend many hours to ensure that they can connect the components together and configure them correctly to operate seamlessly.
  • Security Review:  If your application handles a lot of confidential and sensitive data, companies need to put a critical eye on the security of the infrastructure to prevent malware attacks and breaches.
  • DevOps:  Making new enhancements and feature updates to your application may require the expertise of DevOps professionals focused on continuous integration and continuous delivery.  Even simple changes to the application may require DevOps time and resources to keep everything running smoothly.

Each of the steps outlined above may also need to be repeated depending on the number of application that your company intends to operate as an enterprise, which has a compounding effect on the cost and time required to keep it all running.
