Microsoft Cloud Self Assessment Tool

You want to assess your IT capabilities with regards to Private Cloud Computing ?

The “Microsoft Customer Assessment Tool for private cloud” is a free Online tool which helps to assess your Cloud Readiness based on your Priorities.

The tool will provide with a final report that provides you:

  • Assessment results of IT capabilities in the context of your business priorities and challenges
  • Specific IT recommendations and improvements with the Microsoft private cloud
  • Customized IT projects that are aligned to your business priorities

This tool is just a quick Assessment and does not replace a complete planning exercise to build a strategy how you can move to the Cloud, but nevertheless it is a good entry point.

Cloud Computing is not  a product or solution we can implement, it is a strategy you build on and it requires People, Processes & Technology !
