CSC Launches Cloud Assessment Service to Identify Choices and Risks for Companies Moving to Cloud Computing


Global Service provides tailored Cloud adoption roadmap for target processes & benefit assessment

FALLS CHURCH, Va.- Expanding on its current Cloud service offerings, CSC (NYSE:CSC) today announced it will launch a Cloud Adoption Assessment Service to help companies across the world identify the right business process and IT services when moving to the Cloud.

CSC’s Cloud Adoption Assessment gives businesses a head start in understanding the complexity of the Cloud Computing ecosystem. The new service performs a process-centric analysis of a company’s existing technology set-up using a Suitability Scorecard. By focusing on business processes, rather than on infrastructures or architectures, CSC creates a top-down assessment that maps to the company’s strategic objectives. Originally developed in the UK, the service will be made available to companies across Europe, Australia and the USA beginning in late November.

The CSC Cloud Adoption Assessment helps businesses reach the right decisions to make the shift to Cloud Computing a successful experience. At the end of a three-week assessment, businesses will receive a tailored Cloud adoption roadmap for the target processes and a high-level benefits assessment. They will also receive an understanding of:

* How to align their Cloud Computing strategy with their business strategy
* Which parts of their business are suitable for moving to a Cloud-based delivery model and which aren’t
* How much of each process they should put into the cloud: whether they should retain control in house, but use Cloud-based infrastructure, buy the entire process in as a service, or something in between
* Which services are enterprise-ready and offer the right levels of security and governance for their business
* The impact on procurement and what to consider before signing on the dotted line.

Ron Brown, CSC’s Director, Cloud Computing EMEA commented: “We developed this service in response to requests from clients. Many companies are already using Cloud-based services and others would like to, but there is a great deal of confusion around Cloud Computing, and what is right for one company may not be right for another.”

“By taking a strategically streamlined approach and evaluating the best course of action for each individual enterprise, we can help organizations maximize the benefits and reduce the risk associated with Cloud Computing,” said Brian Boruff, vice president of Global Cloud Computing for CSC. “Our efforts to bring Digital Trust to the Cloud and provide transparency will be a key enabler of broad-scale enterprise adoption.”

As the world’s largest independent IT services provider, CSC offers companies impartial, unbiased advice about moving to the Cloud. Please email to get information about CSC’s Cloud Adoption Assessment, or visit
