Cloud innovation offers you the opportunity to develop new ideas and solutions and bring them quickly to market based on the use of cloud computing technologies. This allows you to react quickly to changes in the market and reduce costs at the same time.
Overall, cloud innovation may be due to the following reasons:
Optimise and automate your business processes
Develop new scalable digital products and services
Introduce agile, cloud-based development processes
Achieve competitive advantages
The process of Cloud Innovation is iterative and can vary depending on a company’s needs and goals. It is important that companies regularly seek feedback from employees, customers and other stakeholders to ensure that their innovations are successful and deliver the desired value. Nevertheless, the innovation process can be divided into different steps.
The first thing to do is to identify where there is potential for improvement in your business and which challenges you would like to address with the help of public cloud services.
Before you can implement your innovation in the public cloud, you need to select a cloud provider. Here you can rely on the support of our cloud architects, jointly consider the requirements of your concept and your cloud strategy and compare different providers to find the best one for you.
Once you have an idea, we support you in creating and testing prototypes. The public cloud makes it possible to deploy a prototype very quickly. This helps them refine the concept and ensure that it is technically feasible (proof-of-concept) and economically viable (proof-of-value).
Once you have successfully tested the concept, you can start to introduce and scale your innovation in the public cloud. In the process, our cloud consultants will help you set up cloud-based infrastructures and services, integrate applications and data, and engage employees and customers.
After the successful introduction, it is important to provide secure operation. Of course, if you wish, we can take over operation for you so that you can make maximum use of our know-how.
In the Cloud Innovation Workshop we analyse the four fundamental questions of innovation:
What is the defined customer need that you want to cover with this solution?
What opportunities would this solution create for your business?
What business results are achieved with this solution?
What motivations of your company are served by this solution?
With the results from your answers and our expertise, we put together a coordinated package for you that meets your requirements.
These are the central components of the workshop:
Business value consensus
Established feedback loops for you (internal/external)
Minimum Viable Product for a first desired solution
Future iterative planning for MVP and further development steps
Cloud innovation in the public cloud offers many opportunities for companies to optimise their business processes, reduce costs and achieve competitive advantages. The use cases are diverse and include smart products & services, agile development processes and much more, where we would be happy to advise and support you in the implementation.
Smart products are products equipped with IoT sensors, software and other technologies. They allow you to collect and communicate data and perform tasks automatically. Smart products are usually connected to the internet and can be controlled remotely via a smartphone.
Smart services are services that use digital technologies to provide added value to customers. They can include personalised recommendations, real-time tracking and self-service options and are delivered through channels such as websites, mobile apps or smart devices.
Companies can offer and use software solutions via the internet as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) instead of buying and installing them on their own servers. This can include the development of software applications for customer management, financial management, project management and much more.
Companies can use cloud-based platforms to develop and offer their own applications and services. This can include the development of mobile apps, websites and other web applications. This enables faster and agile release cycles and also DevSecOps.
Companies can use cloud-based tools and services to collect, store and analyse large amounts of structured and unstructured data. This can help them make better business decisions and gain competitive advantage.
Companies can use cloud-based solutions to optimise their customer service and support. This can include using chatbots, integrating social media platforms and providing self-service options.
Businesses can use cloud-based solutions to improve their online presence and increase sales. This can include developing e-commerce platforms, integrating payment systems and providing personalisation features.
Preparation & introduction of new technical skills
Increase scalability in capacities & regions
Improving the Customer Experience & Collaboration
Offer new digital & scalable products & services
Higher speed through automation
Collaboration with customer development teams
You will benefit from the migration in the long term, especially if you monitor your cloud services: With Cloud Governance, you establish a system with which you can fully exploit the advantages of the cloud and minimise risks. By implementing cloud governance, you can increase the security of your data, reduce costs and ensure that it complies with legal requirements.
Cloud Governance contains:
Administration of risks
Meeting Compliance requirements
Optimization of cloud performance
In addition, the security of your cloud services after migration is essential. With Cloud Security, you establish a security system that protects your data and applications through encryption, firewalls, access controls and monitoring. Among other things, your cloud services are regularly scanned for security vulnerabilities to ensure that the cloud services are always up to date with the latest security and comply with your cloud security concept.
Cloud Security contains:
Use of firewalls to block unwanted access
Monitoring to quickly detect security problems
Security Operations Centre as a cockpit for danger prevention
Use tools and technologies to automate the provisioning, management and optimisation of resources with Cloud Automation. This will make your processes more efficient, reduce error-proneness and increase the speed of deployments.
Cloud Automation contains:
Automatically provision cloud resources
Automation of scaling & deployment
Workflow automation and monitoring
