ServicesDashLIconTime 1-3 Months ServicesDash

For: Technology, HR, Sales, Customer Service, Marketing and Collaboration

Through a highly collaborative and iterative approach, Appirio’s blueprint process breaks down information silos and organizational barriers to create consensus around current pain points and desired future state. With our expertise and best practices from thousands of cloud transformation projects, we then turn that desired future state into a concrete set of technical and process requirements that ensure the success of even the most complex deployments.

Appirio’s Transformation Blueprint services deliver:

  • Future state definition based on what’s possible today, not lowest-common denominator “best practices.”
  • Detailed technical requirements in the form of “user stories” informed by Appirio expertise about what’s possible with major enterprise cloud platforms.
  • Organizational change plan

Enterprises are adopting more and more cloud applications. As cloud adoption accelerates, integrating SaaS applications with existing on-premise applications or other cloud applications is emerging as a huge concern. Enterprises use a myriad of approaches from point-to-point integrations using custom code, to hub-and-spoke integrations, to real-time integrations using an enterprise service bus.

But most customers find it challenging to choose the right approach and have limited resources to implement complex integrations. That’s where Appirio’s integration experts come in. Our team combines expertise with traditional middleware, cloud middleware and cloud APIs to help you develop the right integration strategy and architecture for your cloud applications.
