Working with Cadence
Cadence has a flexible and adaptable approach toward AWS implementations and can provide a solution that meets the needs of Enterprise Customers.
Cloud Adoption Strategies
The cloud is not an “all or nothing” computing environment shift. Instead, companies tend to phase in their cloud implementations over time. Often they start out with simple uses such as backup and data archiving. Later they can implement more active computing chores such as web site hosting and disaster recovery. As the benefits become clearer and comfort levels build, companies migrate more of their computing applications to the AWS Cloud.
Flexible Implementation Strategies
For Enterprise Accounts, Government Agencies, and their Prime Contractors, there are often different viewpoints that need to be accommodated during any implementation. The IT Department is concerned with the technical, functional, and possibly regulatory requirements. Procurement or Strategic Sourcing is interested in budgetary constraints, terms & conditions, and possibly diversity goals. To meet the needs of these different entities, Cadence advocates a loosely coupled development approach (much like properly architected software). In such an environment, customers can utilize different amounts of; Internal IT, External consultants, and Cadence along with its Alliance Partners. With this approach, Cadence can more effectively help the different client organizations (IT, Procurement, Strategic Sourcing, Supplier Diversity, etc.) meet their respective goals.
