Control & Governance
Privacy & Security
Financial Investment

Flexibility

How standard are your requirements for infrastructure and operating systems?

  • Fairly standard in the industry

    The infrastructure and operating system configurations we need are commonly used in the industry.

  • Very specific for my environment

    We’ve got a lot of very specific requirements. Many apps have multiple components (e.g., web, database), so different parts require varying configurations.

  • Much is standard but we still have some specific needs

    The infrastructure and operating system configurations we need are commonly used in the industry but we also have some unique configuration requirements.

  • None of these or I don’t know

Size & Complexity

How complex are your test and development environments?

  • Not complex with little integration

    Most of our test environments are fairly simple — apps running in virtual machines or relatively simple architectures. We don’t need to test a lot of integration among other parts of our environment.

  • Fairly complex with lots of integration

    Our test environments can be complex with many components and extensive multi-tier architectures. A lot of application development and testing focuses on integration between systems in our environment.

  • Our needs are variable

    We have a range of needs from simple virtual machines to large multi-tier apps involving a great deal of integration.

  • None of these or I don’t know

Control & Governance

How much control and governance do you require?

  • Basic control

    We control spending, but further governance of access and resource use is not a priority.

  • Ultimate control that we drive internally

    We cannot meet our business objectives without careful authorization of resource use and prioritization, in addition to control of spending.

  • Ultimate control, but we want someone else to help us with tracking

    We cannot meet our business objectives without careful authorization of resource use and prioritization, and we value assistance in managing this.

  • None of these or I don’t know

Privacy & Security

Tell us about your privacy and data security needs.

  • Standard

    Of course, security and privacy are important. We don’t have particular regulatory concerns and we don’t need to use personal information or sensitive data in our dev/test scenarios.

  • Extreme

    We have stringent privacy and compliance requirements. We need to know where our data is and how it’s being handled at all times. The personal data in the apps we’re developing requires privacy and in-country compliance.

  • We require expertise

    We have stringent privacy and compliance requirements. We need to know where our data is and how it's being handled at all times. We need more expertise than we currently have in-house.

  • None of these or I don’t know

Financial Investment

How do you expect to account for infrastructure and management costs?

  • OPEX only — pay as we go

    We are looking to pay with operating expenses. We only want to pay for what we’re using, as we're using it.

  • Either CAPEX or OPEX

    We have capital allocated to an on-premises platform and dedicated resources, with management resources to match. Pay as you go is not a requirement.

  • OPEX only — contracted payments are OK

    We are looking to pay with operating expenses. We'd like to establish a vendor relationship and contract for services.

  • None of these or I don’t know
