After a basic assessment of your organization’s existing environment and future requirements, IT teams should create a Proof of Concept (PoC). It is vital that team members spend plenty of time planning the PoC in great detail while ensuring it is feasible.
Outline individual solution concepts that walk through required access and application scenarios, like what we determined in step five of phase one. Each team’s needs must be fully understood, down to their cloud security, network, and operational requirements. Then, work these determinations into the action plan for your rollout process. Don’t forget to estimate the budget requirements for each department’s rollout!
Finally, create a test environment to verify that these plans are accurate and valid. For example, deploy your new solution on a virtual desktop, or for a single user within your IT team. This will either ensure that your proof of concept is rock solid or reveal the biggest weak spots.
