INTRODUCTION This Project Proposal describes the goals that Globex expects to achieve with respect to migration of services to a cloud service provider or providers . The primary goal of this task is to migrate all internal and external Information Technology (IT) resources under the purview of the Chief Information Officer (CIO). The focus of the migration is to provide improvements in efficiency, agility, innovation, and sustainability across all departments and in the CIO’s support of our corporate mission. 1. Background The two main drivers of this effort are the increasing benefits and mandates for cloud migration and data center consolidation. Cloud Migration : Produced by the Office of Management & Budget (OMB), the February 2011 Federal Cloud Strategy outlines the impetus and benefits of migrating to cloud services, including acceleration of data center consolidation and better utilization of existing infrastructure assets. Data Center Consolidation : The CIO has initiated a task to reduce the IT cost necessary to support our different Departments through the consolidation of traditional data centers to promote the use of Green IT, reduce the cost of data center hardware, increase the overall IT security posture of the company, and shift IT investments to more efficient computing platforms and technologies. These two drivers, as well as corporate mandate for “Cloud First”, highlight the importance of harnessing these fundamental shifts in IT investment patterns to increase IT efficiencies and cut IT costs. Prior to migrating to the cloud or consolidating data centers, it is critical to understand the current IT environment and make informed decisions, in coordination with the internal / external stakeholders, about moving applications to the cloud. The proposed services will support desired outcomes, including: Successful and complete transition of specified applications, solutions, and services to the cloud. Consolidated and simplified application, service management and monitoring in the cloud to support cost-effective, secure, and agile IT management. Trained and proficient personnel.
