Rapid Assessment®: Cloud Computing

RSM consultants use the Rapid Assessment methodology to review your organization's technology operations and ultimately reveal opportunities to improve performance and lower costs by implementing cloud-based solutions.

The heart of our focused evaluation is geared toward the discovery of opportunities to simplify operations by leveraging cloud computing solutions so that you can focus on your core business.

Our assessment can be tailored to holistically review all, or discretely selected, components of your technology operations in the areas of IT infrastructure, IT development, marketing and sales, production applications, finance and accounting, and security. Our analysis will reveal how cloud computing solutions can support and enhance your business operations and drive business strategy to:

  • Lower costs
  • Enhance productivity
  • Support mobile workforce
  • Upgrade, enhance and integrate legacy systems
  • Provide a competitive advantage
  • Meet current security requirements
  • Improve collaboration between organizations

Our report will be a cornerstone for determining how your organization can benefit from implementing and integrating cloud solutions such as Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Regardless of where you may be in immediacy of adoption, the roadmap will serve as a valuable tool for your planning.
