Cloud Delivery Framework (CDF)

Better, faster cloud outcomes

The market moves fast. Your mission needs change. Technology updates happen each day, hour, minute. You can’t afford the cost of slow cloud progress and it’s our mission to deliver faster business outcomes. We took the saying “work smarter, not harder” and put it into practice with our opinionated guidance and resources on how our clients can successfully modernize their organizations in the cloud.

Best practices built atop CAF

The AIS Cloud Delivery Framework (CDF) captures our experience executing enterprise cloud projects to deliver better results for our customers. This ever-evolving framework combines AIS best practices collected from these experiences with techniques presented in Microsoft’s Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF) in the areas of:

  • Cloud strategy and readiness
  • Workload landing zones construction
  • Application migration
  • Data and AI
  • Cloud security and compliance

Guidance and resources, sourced from experience

Kickoff projects with a concrete set of tasks that can be used to orchestrate projects and guidance, backed by a Git repository. Our technical project managers, technical leads, and engineers are supported by a concrete backlog of work that can be used to orchestrate a successful cloud adoption engagement without relying on full-time support from subject matter experts (SMEs). The expertise of these SMEs is well documented, extending their reach and knowledge of successful cloud project execution, lessons learned, best practices, and artifacts. Teams are armed with initial backlogs, deliverable samples, starter files, and other supporting content to accompany the backlog, fully adaptable to client requirements.

Teams across our company can contribute to the internally open-sourced framework. From consultants to deeply technical engineers, our teams are helping AIS deliver better, faster cloud outcomes for our clients.
