The company recognized that undertaking a cloud transformation is complex and would require a fundamental change to its technology, processes, and people. It engaged with Cloudreach to provide insight and guidance on successful cloud adoption and transformation.
Cloudreach engaged with key stakeholders from the company’s leadership, product and operational teams to gain an understanding of its existing structure. This assessment resulted in an actionable roadmap, including specific recommendations to help transition its operating model to be cloud-ready so it could accelerate the time-to-value of cloud.
This roadmap considered technical capability, organization maturity and the necessary workload migrations to the Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
Cloudreach also undertook a comprehensive security assessment to evaluate current operational, security and governance controls, identify gaps and provide recommendations.
The automotive retailer now has an actionable roadmap to ensure successful and secure cloud adoption.
Cloudreach continues to support the company along its cloud journey by implementing specific security solutions. We are also building a data lake on GCP to enable the company to leverage disparate data sources and run analytics to improve management of its supply chain and inventory.
