Cloud-Native Readiness Workshop

In today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, transitioning to a cloud-native architecture is not only a strategic advantage but also a necessity for organizations aiming to stay competitive and innovative. As organizations evolve to embrace technologies like Kubernetes, containerization and public cloud services, it is vital to align your people and processes with these advanced tools.

WWT's Cloud-Native Readiness Accelerator serves as a foundational step for organizations on the cusp of this transformative journey. This accelerator is designed to evaluate your organization's preparedness for adopting cloud-native principles, which are pivotal for achieving scalability, resilience and agility in software development and operations.

By participating in this assessment, your organization will be taking a critical step toward not just adopting cloud-native technologies but embracing a culture of innovation, resilience and continuous improvement that leads to real transformation.

Goals & Objectives

The Cloud-Native Readiness Assessment is an evaluation tool that helps organizations understand their current position relative to cloud-native best practices. It leverages an assessment framework that combines quantitative and qualitative analyses, gathering data through targeted surveys and open dialogues with participants across various departments and roles.

This approach ensures a multifaceted view of your organization's readiness, incorporating insights from those who will directly contribute to and be affected by the transition to cloud-native methodologies.

How does the Cloud-Native Readiness Assessment help your organization?

Embarking on a cloud-native journey without a clear understanding of your organization's readiness can lead to strategic missteps, inefficient resource allocation and missed opportunities for optimization. WWT's assessment offers a structured framework to:

  • Identify strengths and areas for improvement across four key domains: organizational readiness, business readiness, application readiness and DevOps readiness.
  • Engage stakeholders from across the organization, fostering a shared understanding and collective ownership of the cloud-native transition.
  • Lay the groundwork for a tailored action plan that aligns with your organization's specific needs, goals and existing capabilities.
