SILICON VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - October 7, 2010) - The Armada Group, a leading Silicon Valley technology consulting firm, today announced a new online cloud readiness assessment to help business, IT managers and other IT stakeholders determine their organization's level of readiness to adopt cloud computing. This free assessment is provided in cooperation with Enterprise Cloud and managed hosting leader OpSource and is available at: http://tinyurl.com/armada-assessment.

In conjunction with the cloud readiness assessment, Armada and OpSource are hosting a webinar, "Building an IT Roadmap for the Cloud" on Wednesday, October 13 from 9am to 10am PT.

Topics covered will include:

  • How to determine achievable objectives from moving to the cloud

"The switch to cloud-based platforms is an unmistakable trend in the IT industry," said Dasan. "Every IT department in the Fortune 1000 is either evaluating or in the process of adopting the cloud-based model of computing. Experts predict this trend to continue for the next five to 10 years, until the majority of business applications are moved to a cloud model. Today, however, the adoption of cloud computing is still in its infancy at most businesses, so we are providing this cloud readiness assessment as a way to assess your IT department's capabilities and offer guidance on how to build an IT roadmap for the cloud."
