Why an Azure Assessment?

Businesses today rely on safe, efficient, and scalable IT systems to smoothly navigate through competitive landscapes. For CFO’s and IT Directors, finding the balance between early adoption of technology and keeping the CapEx and OpEx budget in-line with management and ownership expectations is a tough challenge. Our Azure assessment service discovers and documents our findings to get your organization on track to improved operational efficiency, reduced risk, and optimized budget utilization.

IT Lighthouse DETECT Service

We’ve designed our Azure infrastructure assessment in a way that efficiently introduces the enterprise leadership team to their status of Azure implementation. This is done by understanding their stance, scalability, and appropriate actions to align the IT infrastructure needs with their present and future business objectives.

We guide and structure our assessment using the ITIL – IT Service Management framework.

Azure Service Management and Operations Assessment

Using ITIL to measure the maturity level of Azure ITSM in your organization, our process can be described in several phases that are executed in the following order

Azure ITSM and Operations Assessment Phase 1: Document Review
Timeline : 1 Week(approx.)
Execution : Remote

01.

We send a document request list (DRL) detailing standard Azure IT Operations program artifacts. Azure IT Operations documentation generally comprises policies, procedures, and standards that accurately articulate the current IT operations and practices of the client.

02.

Clients exchange available documentation and answer necessary questions via phone or encrypted emails.

03.

Documentation review helps us understand the structure and components of an organization’s program and allows us to develop contextually relevant questions for phase 2.

Finally, the documents are presented to the executive leadership team to deliver a birds-eye view of their organization’s IT stance. Directors of IT, CFO’s or other organizational leaders may utilize the spreadsheet to track control-by-control implementation and use it as a working document.

Let's talk

Azure ITSM & Operations Assessment Phase 2: Staff Interviews and assurance testing
Timeline : 1-2 Weeks (approx.)
Execution : Onsite Or Remote

01.

Interview conduction of various organization team members with roles that relate to ITIL control families.

02.

Questions pertain to items from documentation review, clarifying local procedures, and how various controls are implemented.

03.

We also conduct assurance testing of critical controls, and gather additional artifacts that demonstrate the implementation and effectiveness of controls.

Finally, the documents are presented to the executive leadership team to deliver a birds-eye view of their organization’s IT stance. Directors of IT, CFO’s or other organizational leaders may utilize the spreadsheet to track control-by-control implementation and use it as a working document.

Let's talk

Azure ITSM and Operations Assessment Phase 3: Report delivery and review
Timeline : 2-3 weeks(approx.)
Execution : Remote

Following phases 1 and 2, our analysts will review the ITSM assessment output and develop:

01.

A report that includes a 3-4-page executive overview describing a high-level overview of identified control gaps, suggested improvements, and compliance dashboard.

02.

A detailed compliance spreadsheet which provides an assessment of each control to include implementation status, a priority level for remediation, and high-level notes about potential remedies or recommendations.

03.

Client-side review of the report and spreadsheet followed by a teleconference to address queries or clarify information in the documents.

04.

Release of final report and spreadsheet copies to the organization.

Finally, the documents are presented to the executive leadership team to deliver a birds-eye view of their organization’s IT stance. Directors of IT, CFO’s or other organizational leaders may utilize the spreadsheet to track control-by-control implementation and use it as a working document.
