Sprint2Cloud: A Quicker Way to Get Through Cloud Migrations

By Rafal Greupner

In today’s high-velocity digital arena, businesses are thrust into the whirlwind of global events, rapid technological advancements, and the incessant push for innovation.

Yet, amidst the tempest of mergers, digital acceleration, and shifting tech paradigms, charting a confident path towards cloud migration can be daunting.

Understanding this conundrum, Hitachi Digital Services, boasting over 1200 successful cloud & application modernization engagements since 2017, is introducing its innovative Sprint2Cloud methodology. Unlike many solutions that treat cloud migration as a mere checkbox, Sprint2Cloud emphasizes a foundational approach that considers not only the technical specifications, but the core business objectives of the customer.

Leveraging automated source code analysis, tailored target architecture for each application, and a detailed assessment report, Hitachi Digital Services’ Sprint2Cloud with GenAI elevates beyond traditional automation, ensuring precision and strategic coherence throughout the modernization journey.

We’ve been able to show tangible benefits with this approach and solution. In a recent Forrester Total Economic Impact study, we were able to show a 3.5 times acceleration in cloud migration, an overwhelming 108% ROI on modernization initiatives, and a profound 95% diminution in manual coding efforts.

This isn’t just a statement; it’s a testament. Take, for instance, a prominent healthcare entity that streamlined its application development cycle from 6 months to a brisk 2 months using Sprint2Cloud. Similarly, a major player in the financial sector witnessed a 40% plummet in infrastructure overheads by harnessing our specialized services.

Yet, the numbers are just one facet of the narrative. At the heart of our offering is a genuine commitment to partnership. We at Hitachi Digital Services are steadfast in championing our clients’ digital aspirations. Our modus operandi revolves around cultivating a well-articulated strategy, ensuring comprehensive stakeholder buy-in, and then orchestrating a migration journey that’s not just about shifting data and applications, but about steering businesses towards their zenith. With a blend of deep technical expertise and a vision rooted in business outcomes, we position enterprises not just for a cloud transition, but for a holistic digital revolution.

In an age where generalities abound, Hitachi Digital Services is doubling down on specificity and measurable results. If you’re contemplating a leap into the cloud, let’s get specific about your needs and how we can address them. As a call to action, we are offering a comprehensive, personalized consultation tailored for your cloud migration requirements.
