Cloud Adoption Framework

The Cloud Adoption Framework Workshop is designed to be ideal for pre-sales engagements where customer cloud opportunities need to be uncovered and adoption accelerated. Through a co-creation style workshop, we jointly develop the customer’s cloud adoption goals, desired outcomes and create an adoption plan. This ideation exercise, accomplished in a co-creation fashion, provides the customer with ownership of the output and clearly positions Microsoft as a strategic partner.

The cloud adoption workshop is designed to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Demonstrate to the customer that achieving benefits from cloud requires a formally defined adoption process.
  • Highlight that we have a formal approach based on MSIT and our extensive customer engagement experience.
  • Gain a clear understanding of cloud benefits and why Azure and Microsoft is ideal for their organization.
  • Ideate together to determine the cloud adoption goals for their organization.
