Cloud Marketplace Assessment

2 hours
It is increasingly critical for IT organizations to achieve commitments with cloud service providers (CSPs) in a predictable and measurable way. Without the right processes in place, IT's ability to deliver on its cloud commitments can be quickly overextended. WWT's Cloud Marketplace Assessment is a cost-effective way to benchmark the effectiveness of your software procurement processes.

What to Expect

Our cloud marketplace and optimization experts will work with you to create a high-impact roadmap for marketplace transactions that helps IT regain control and maximize value to the business while meeting your organization's cloud commitments.

WWT will engage your teams in self-evaluation activities that expand and improve on how you roadmap future SaaS product purchases and leverage current or future cloud commitments.

  • Visualize your current cloud marketplace roadmap
  • Align business goals, strategy and priorities surrounding current or upcoming CSP cloud commits

Recommended changes may include tools, architecture, training, development practices, consulting, coaching and marketplace strategy.
