About us

Cloud Transformation / Business Strategy & Security Solutions (CTSS) provides information technology, business process, Enterprise Resource Management (ERP) implementation and IT security & controls consulting solutions to medium and large scale businesses.

CTSS is focused on helping these companies assess their current state business model’s Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and Return on Investment (ROI) with the feasibility of improving their existing business (ERP) and IT processes or transforming to a potential Outsourcing, Managed Services or Cloud Computing solution. This will include initial TCO and ROI current state assessment using our proprietary assessment tools, developing the Request for Proposal (RFP) and helping to select the most qualified vendors that best meet the company's business / IT goals and objectives.

Once the service provider has been selected we will assist in the transformation and integration process which will include development and negotiation of the Service Level Agreement (SLA) and Project Management (PM) leadership and most importantly the assessment of the adequacy of the vendor or service provider’s security and controls. A key consideration in our service model is that we are “Vendor Neutral.”

When implementing new business applications, processes and IT solutions, especially related to ERP, Project management is the key to a successful implementation. Inadequate project management has played a major role in failed implementations. A qualified, dedicated project management team is rule number one in all new business implementations. We help to provide not only an experienced team but a roadmap to lead the transformation efforts to a successful implementation.

One of the most important considerations in implementing new systems, business processes or moving to an outsourcing / cloud environment is ensuring that adequate data integrity controls and security exist within the application or with the service provider. Our Methodology and experience focuses on assessing a new application or service provider's security and control capabilities and that the appropriate industry accepted certifications exists to ensure that our client has the assurance that adequate controls and security are present over their data, not only at time of conversion or transition, but throughout their entire business process. It also focuses on these controls at the client site to ensure a complete end to end security solution is developed.

Our methodology ensures quality of service from our initial involvement until successful sign off of satisfaction of the outsourcing/cloud transition by both parties. Therefore, our major Value Proposition and Mission is to provide a comprehensive solution for our client from "Initiation to Integration" on their value journey to an outsourcing / cloud solution.

Also embedded throughout our Methodology are the IT Service Management (ITSM) standards. This is extremely important in moving to an Outsourcing / Cloud environment since your IT structure and related business processes changes and the way IT service is delivered within the organization as well as the service provider.

Cloud Transformation & Security Solutions along with Datapipe Managed Cloud for Amazon Web Services has a unique offering that combines the flexibility, scalability, and power of Amazon’s world-leading cloud platform with Datapipe’s award-winning managed services and support. CTSS an AWS Consulting Partner can help you maximize the value of Amazon Web Services: Managed Cloud for AWS - 24/7 support, monitoring, response & resolution; Cloud Analytics and Optimization - Insights and analytics for optimizing AWS; Committed Instances - Save 25% to 35% on your AWS Compute Spend; AWS Direct Connect Solutions - Benefit from fully managed hybrid IT.

For our client’s moving to a Managed Service or Cloud based solution. Our focus will be on helping them achieve the following:

Benefit of Moving to the Cloud from a Business Perspective (benefits based on a most recent survey of CFOs from CFOinovationASIA - December 2016) :

By outsourcing routine, high cost and less valued work to outsourcing / cloud service organizations, companies can leverage these outsourcing/cloud computing organizations' extensive core competencies, experience and infrastructure to reduce cost, capital investment, improve quality of service, and most importantly, to improve their service delivery to customers and increase its competitive edge. The main or key cost/ benefit would be paying only for services used (Metered Services). This concept is similar to electricity usage; you pay for electricity only when you "Flip the Switch".

Our main focus will also be to assist companies to understand and transition to the best Outsourcing, Managed and Cloud solution such as Software as a Service (SAAS), Infrastructure as a Service (IAAS) and Platform as a Service (PAAS) as well as assessing various operating environments, Private, Public, Community and Hybrid.

Our objective is to understand each company's goals and objectives and provide the best cloud/outsourcing solution possible from an independent Advisory (Vendor neutral) standpoint in Strategy development, implementation and integration and providing the requisite security & controls assurance. This will include initial TCO and ROI current state assessment as well relevant benchmarks of companies in your industry which also identifies the matching of IT needs to meet the company's goals and objectives, developing the RFP and helping to select the most qualified service provider possible that best meets the company's business and IT goals and objectives. Once the service provider has been selected, we will then use our proven implementation methodology and tools to develop the most beneficial SLA to the company from a cost and service prospective.

We will also assist in the development of the road map and the required steps and procedures to ensure successful migration to the service provider. As a part of our tools and methodology, we will assist in the development and negotiation of the Service Level Agreement and necessary Project Management leadership until successful sign off of satisfaction of the outsourcing/cloud transition by both parties. Last component of our methodology is our security and controls module that takes into consideration the pending Cloud Security standards ISO/IEC 27017/18 control objectives that map these requirements to the service provider's and client’s security and controls environment as well as ensuring that the service provider has the appropriate certifications (PCI, ISAE 3402/SSAE 16, ISO 27001, MTCS, CSA Star etc.,).

 

We also provide Executive Educational Services in conjunction with our Partner CIO Matrix for Asia Pacific and the Middle East:

SECURITY, RISK AND THE CLOUD

WEDNESDAY 25 MARCH,
2:30 PM - 5:00 PM
SINGAPORE
SINGAPORE

Two of the biggest trends in IT is the reliance on the cloud and the increased threat of cyber attacks. These two concepts are now intersecting, raising the question – are you safer with your systems outsourced to cloud specialists, or would they be more secure under your careful control?

Given high-profile incidents at organisations such as Sony and Target, how are your peers responding to this? This discussion will look at best practice and lessons learned from organisations across the world. It will explore aspects of cloud vulnerability and security, the security risk management, legal accountability and the relationships with third parties that can make or break your organisation.

Led by Jerry Wertelecky, a veteran of all things cloud and security, this is sure to be a valuable exploration of two important and inseparable topics. The discussion will focus on regional Asia, inlcuding regulatory aspects in markets such as Hong Kong and Singapore.

Join Jerry, CIO Matrix and your peers to understand more about security in the cloud.
