  • Current IT landscape and planned transformation

Based on our analysis, we guide you in selecting the most appropriate hyperscaler for your individual context.

Cloud Migration Assessment
Platform and Landing Zone Concept


The cloud requires close collaboration between IT and business. As a result, IT processes are often no longer purely supportive, but increasingly interwoven with the value chain in your organization. Adjustments of organizational structures serve the purpose of supporting the new value added chain in the best possible way.

Our offerings

Value Chain Optimization

To ensure leveraging the potential of cloud technology, it is crucial to make, often necessary, adjustments in the process organization: These often include the IT value chain (interfaces between operations, development and business), governance processes, management processes (such as budgeting, planning, etc.).

We support you to get a clear picture of your current structure. Based on your needs, best practices and reference structures, we provide recommendations for a future IT process organization.

Organizational Design
Transformation Architecture


New collaboration models and changing standards in development, architecture and security and compliance lead to new demands. Part of the cloud transformation is therefore the analysis and determination of the maturity level with regard to skills in the organization as well as the enablement of managers and teams.

Our offerings

Skill Design and Gap Analysis

Implementing and leveraging cloud technology requires a range of skill development measures. From upskilling all the way to creating completely new roles (hiring/reorientation). Therefore, we support you in the skill survey, analysis and skill transformation path of your affected employees. This includes:

  • Based on our reference profiles, we design a target competency model to enable your work force in supporting the cloud organization.
  • We analyze the existing skill landscape, help structuring and improving it before comparing it to the defined competence models, which enables us to obtain clear indications on the maturity level as well as measures to increase it.
  • Together with HR, workers' council and other stakeholders, we derive future-proof roles and a transformation path to upskill the current workforce where needed and to build a sustainable foundation for the cloud.
Leadership and People Enablement

Change Management

The considerable disruptions at the personal, team and organizational level require holistic change management in the transformation implementation. On the one hand, this allows resistance to be identified and resolved at an early stage. You can also provide the right information at the right time – and in a way that is appropriate for the target group. This enables those affected by the changes to prepare for their news roles in new structures.

Our offering

Change Implication Assessment

To derive a sustainable roadmap, we need to understand the implications of the implementation of cloud technology on the organization, its people, existing behavior patterns, technologies etc. Therefore, we quantify the project impact on five to seven dimensions, followed by a qualitative description of the assessment. This first assessment is carried out together with the core team. Based on these initial results, further assessments are conducted with relevant stakeholders.

Our approach to the cloud transformation process


  • Discover

    During the discover phase, our team of consultants obtains an overview of your current organization. This enables us to assess the transformation effort and to identity key topics and put together a tailored transformation package.
  • Assess and Design

    In the assess and design phase, we focus on detailed analysis regarding technology, processes and structures as well as people and governance. In addition, we work together with the internal transformation team on the design of tomorrow’s cloud organization. We conclude the phase with a tailored transformation architecture.
  • Execute and Govern

    In today's complex environments, even the best transformation plan is subject to an iterative approach and needs to be adjusted during the transformation. In the execute and govern phase, we get involved selectively for necessary adjustments to your journey and are happy to support you and your teams more intensively during implementation.
