The practical experience to realise the opportunity in Cloud Business Services
Navidus was founded by a team made up of entrepreneurs, consulting partners from the 'Big 4', and the CIO of a FTSE 250 Company.
This experienced group realised that, in the midst of all of the hype about Cloud Computing, something very important is happening.
This team share the view that Cloud Computing had matured to the point where Cloud Business Services are now beginning to make an important impact on the business landscape. Of course, Cloud Business Services are built and delivered on Cloud Computing platforms. However, in the same way that the electricity grid enables every business without requiring these business to understand generation and distribution, businesses can use Cloud Business Services to save substantial costs and improve efficiency while leaving the technical foundation of these services to the cloud providers to manage.
Over the next few years the growth of Cloud Business Services will lead to a revolution in business efficiency and effectiveness. Existing businesses which are quick to seize the opportunity will gain substantial competitive advantage. New business, built to take full advantage of the change, will challenge incumbents with disruptive business models and enjoy dramatically lower costs.
Successful businesses will manage the risks of going to fast into this new mode of operations; in their business they will select the right business services areas to change first, and they will use cloud service providers who will survive and grow in this market.
Navidus Consulting was established to help businesses who want to take advantage of the Cloud Business Services opportunity. We help to those organisations to navigate this rapidly evolving area using a business services strategy that integrates existing business services with new Cloud Business Services.
Based on our independent studies of the market and our experience in the design and delivery of business services, Navidus know where in your business the Cloud can create value. In order to build consensus in the executive team to support this change; we use our experience and know-how to develop and deliver a solid benefits case for Cloud Business Services. To ensure a rapid, low risk implementation; we deploy methods to integrate the governance of existing and new business services.
The Navidus team are excited to be here from the start of this important evolution of business effectiveness and efficiency and we are determined to be closely involved in many of the success stories that this change will bring.
