Entertainment Industry Case Study

CloudGenera helps entertainment industry company justify cloud transformation

The emergence of cloud is disrupting the traditional approach to information technology hosting.  Change is hard and clients are looking for help justifying the shift to Hybrid IT.

Use Case:

The client leveraged CloudGenera to analyze the business case for migrating an application service to the cloud.

The application service was currently deployed in a co-location facility and the client had an upcoming technology refresh.  The IT team wanted to migrate to the cloud but was struggling to convey to financial executives why the cloud would lower expenses.  

Business Outcomes:

  • CloudGenera analytics were used to generate a financial model that helped the CFO visualize how a capital expense intensive operating model depreciated over multiple years was less efficient than the operating expense “pay as you use” model offered in the cloud.
  • Client approved project to migrate their application infrastructure to a cloud deployment managed by their trusted IT partner.
  • Client projects a 50% reduction in total cost of ownership post migration driving significant profitability for their business.


Quote from IT Advisory Consultant:

“Taking an enterprise software like CloudGenera’s CloudAssist and applying it to a small business was eye opening. The output of the software stated that a migration to cloud would cut my client’s annual capital expenses in half, providing great financial benefit to the owners of the business. I was very impressed with the comprehensiveness and ease of use offered by CloudAssist. It was very useful in helping to streamline the comparison of co-location, private cloud and public cloud services.”
