Astadia Launches first-of-its-kind ROI Calculator for Cloud Computing


Inviting I.T. Pros to Take the ROI Challenge for Building Applications at Cloudforce 2010

Press Release News!

Today, at the Cloudforce London 2010 expo, we will be offically announcing the UK launch of the Cloud IT Transformation (ITX) ROI Calculator. Results are available in British Pounds Sterling and in US Dollars at www.astadia.com/roi .

Many I.T. professionals know that the business case for the Cloud is compelling. A 2010 report on I.T. spending priorities by Kaufman Bros. shows a strong trend of I.T. infrastructure consolidating or rationalising software applications, servers, data centres and back-office functions to cheaper web-based software applications.

Many I.T. leaders struggle to assess the Cloud platforms that are right for their needs. Others lack time or resources to build the business case to move specific technologies to the chosen platform. The ITX ROI Calculator gives a fast estimate of which pieces of an I.T. infrastructure and application portfolio will cost less and perform better when moved to the Cloud.

“This new tool shows how much money I.T. departments could be leaving on the table,” says Cory Vander Jagt, Director, Astadia ITX. “Premise based I.T. solutions leak money at three different inflection points whenever a company gets bigger or smaller. Standardising an application environment in the Cloud consistently provides elasticity at all three points.”

The ITX ROI Calculator is a free service from the Astadia I.T. Cloud Transformation (ITX) practice, which helps enterprise I.T. teams navigate Cloud implementations on every major Cloud computing platform: Amazon Web Services, Google and the Force.com.

Astadia helps business leaders and I.T. teams accurately estimate the financial returns of their cloud computing projects. Then, Astadia makes sure the projected ROI actually materialises. Astadia’s 4 step ITX process for doing this is described in more detail at www.astadia.com/itx.
