When is a Roadmap right for you?
During our many years of experience developing strategic roadmaps, four primary reasons for requesting one stand out.
Data Center Consolidation
If you’re closing a data center to move to the cloud, a strategic roadmap is recommended.
It could be time to rewrite a legacy application that’s already in the cloud or moving there.
When two companies merge you will need to navigate the complexities of merging infrastructures, too.
If your business is fully committed to a cloud-only future, a strategic roadmap is essential to charting the path forward.
