Adopting and mastering cloud computing is a complex task that can seem rather complex. But the cloud is now a necessity and successful migration can make your organization more competitive and productive.
Given the current shortage of qualified workers, how can you get the most out of your cloud environments, while complying with best governance and cyber security practices?
Or how should you start the transition to cloud computing and choose between the many platforms and suppliers available?
The answers to these questions are intimately tied to your business model and your particular reality.
To adapt to a new hybrid work environment, many businesses rushed to the cloud. However, the lack of analysis and planning left them facing unexpected challenges. Some of the most frequently mentioned are:
- Services that are activated and billed but not used;
- Lack of visibility on or trouble understanding costs;
- Major, long-term impacts of initial choices;
- Failure to manage permissions, leading to unorchestrated deployments;
- Lack of governance and uniformity;
- Overly complicated network administration.
To be successful, each cloud deployment should be configured and orchestrated based on your company’s specific needs. Our experience with numerous other businesses has allowed us to put a clear process in place for assisting our clients with their cloud computing projects.

Transformation and migration
Your workloads, services, data, and applications are migrated to the landing zone in the right order to lay the foundation for your cloud presence. You take control at your own pace and start on a solid foundation.
Optimization and governance
Migration is not an end in itself, but rather the beginning of an ongoing development process. ITI remains at your side to optimize your cloud environments and develop them according to your needs.
What is a landing zone?
A landing zone is an environment that has been provisioned and prepared to host workloads based on your specific requirements. It is the final deliverable of any iteration of Microsoft’s Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF) methodology.
Much more than a resource structure, the landing zone specifies how the environment will be managed by establishing the basis of your governance. It also determines various permissions, nomenclature, data structure, security rules, and a variety of other considerations.
ITI designs and personalizes your landing zone in close collaboration with you. Rather than delivering an out-of-the-box environment, we only activate the services and resources that the company actually needs. The risks of unexpected costs and security breaches are substantially lowered.
