The tool for IT.

cloudstep® is the application where you build the total picture of how you deliver IT to the business, important information can be found by the right people, and our tool visualises the information for your specific business case or reform.

Model

cloudstep® Modeller can build a five year capital and operation expenditure overview in seconds. You can explore different scenarios to understand the best course of action. Build complex business cases based on evidence and hard costs, not speculation.

Analyze

cloudstep® Analysis can discover information about your physical and virtual infrastructure. It looks at the entire portfolio of infrastructure services from Azure, AWS, GCP (soon) to show the cost of your server fleet deployed in the public cloud for how much. cloudstep® navigates the minefield of on-demand, reserved, spot and other instance types to compare your existing severs apples for apples with public cloud virtual machines.

Plan

cloudstep® Planning is a tool that lets you plan migration scenarios to understand the cost and effort.  Use it to analyse the architecture of your applications, how they related to each other and importantly the effort involved in moving them.  The planning tool lets you work out when and how you’ll retire existing equipment and figure out the right way to deploy your infrastructure in the public cloud.

 

Getting Started

Model in minutes

In 10 minutes get a cloudstep® baseline of the common infrastructure and associated costs within any organisation’s environment. The Builder allows you to obtain financial validation in a few very short steps. Model what would take traditional business cases weeks.

Extend upon the Builder’s baseline to include financial granularity to build a comprehensive IT model.

 

 

Cashflow Analysis

See the whole financial picture

cloudstep® can build a five year capital and operational expenditure overview in seconds. You can explore different scenarios to understand the best course of action. You can build complex business cases based on evidence and hard costs, not speculation.

cloudstep® also summarises your costs by category, showing you a year by year breakdown of the impact of changes.

 

Iaas Reporting

Understand costs in AWS, Azure and on-prem

cloudstep® can discover information about your physical and virtual infrastructure. It looks at the entire portfolio of infrastructure services from Azure and AWS and can show the cost of your server fleet deployed in the cloud and how much that would cost.

cloudstep® navigates the minefield of on demand, reserved, spot and other instance types and compares servers, apple for apples between the public cloud providers and your existing on-premises virtual machines. Include your costs of infrastructure, labour, licensing and other services. See a real comparison between the cloud and on-premises servers that reflects your reality, not a vendor’s assumptions.

 

 

 

Implementation of Applications

Work out the best way to deliver services

Applications are complicated to deliver. They require a lot of interdependent infrastructure and effort from infrastructure and support teams. Comparing different implementation strategies means that you have to understand all the costs.

cloudstep® analyses all of this and can show choices side by side. To deliver an application there are different layers of cost.

 

Tasks

Run your migrations

cloudstep® can run your project efficiently by using the defined process per application migration that has been plotted out in your cloudstep plan.
Each task can be assigned to a resource where they will action the assigned tasks.

cloudstep® includes a rich text editor so that the detail can be entered by the resources per assigned task prior to its commencement date. Status reporting is done through the progress view of cloudstep with a high-level colour map. Act on real-time data, not guesses. Cloudstep will give you a high-level overview of where things stand for the current migration wave per application and tasks.

Movere

Movere is a discovery solution that provides the data and insights needed to continuously optimize, monitor and analyze IT environments with confidence.
Running regular scans with Movere eliminates the need to repeatedly spend time manually gathering and integrating point-in-time data from independent sources simply to understand how your IT environment has changed.

Excel

cloudstep® import/export allows you to handle the data outside the application. Great for large imports of objects that you’ve collated. Additionally, export the entire model so that the bean counters can analyze the data in something they trust.

JIRA

Coming Soon – At cloudstep® we understand that PMO teams maybe using Jira made by Atlassian. A cloudstep® migration’s agile process shows the backlog work item hierarchy. User stories, features and tasks are used to track work. Epics are used to group the migration work under larger scenarios.
Data can be synced between the two systems for reporting and data entry.

Azure DevOps

Coming Soon – At cloudstep® we understand that PMO teams maybe using Azure DevOps. A cloudstep® migration’s agile process shows the backlog work item hierarchy. User stories, features and tasks are used to track work. Epics are used to group the migration work under larger scenarios.
Data can be synced between the two systems for reporting and data entry.

Open API

Coming Soon – We have an API using the OpenAPI specification. OpenAPI is a broadly adopted industry standard for describing modern APIs. We use Swagger to describe the structure of cloudstep® so that machines can read them.
The possibilities are endless when you have an API to connect to. Bring on the data!

PowerShell

Coming Soon – cloudstep® Powershell is a Microsoft framework for automating tasks using a command-line shell and an associated scripting language.
Used widely amongst system administrators, this command line tool has become a daily driver to perform and automate tasks againsts systems.

Office 365

Many customers use Office 365 (Azure Active Directory) for corporate single sign on (SSO). Well our application is no different.
If you would like to implement SSO we can configure cloudstep® to leverage your identity and passwords to authenticate to our service.
