Cloud Operating Model

Building and implementing Operating Models appropriate for the challenges of automation, efficiency and federated control.

  • Cloud is one of those rare paradigm shifts in Technology that challenge the accepted norms of how we delivery IT services to meet business needs​.
  • The promise of Business agility cannot be realised without coordinated changes across engineering, operations and development teams​.
  • Cloud consumption whilst ideally standardised and automated across commodity services, needs to be addressed from the perspective of the differing needs of application and platform teams​.
  • Cloud spend is dynamic and volatile, requiring a completely new approach to financial management and accountability​.
  • Levels of fine grained control are unprecedented, but the skills, knowledge and governance needed to exert control must be established rapidly​.

CSX Approach.

  • Hyperscalers offer various CAFs, great if you’re greenfield, less so if you need to cater for multiple real world, legacy functions and enterprise service management controls​.
  • We design and implement operating models based on reality and the needs for regulated, enterprise businesses to meet the agility challenges presented as a cloud-benefits without breaking necessary controls and governance​.
  • Based upon real world implementation, we design an operating model incubation journey that ensures a pace of change that works with your business and your technology teams​.
  • Automation, standardisation and cost efficiency are at the forefront of our thinking, ensuring your skilled resources are working on the right things, automating and shifting left where appropriate​.
