Cloud Value Assessment (CVA)

A Cloud Value Assessment (“CVA”) is an exclusive GSI offering that provides you with a Cloud Migration Strategy/Roadmap that is in complete alignment with your business goals.


  • We look at all things “Cloud” – IaaS, SaaS, PaaS, ITaaS or can focus on one workload or a specific grouping of workloads
  • Answers the questions as to whether the movement of workloads to the cloud is suitable for their current and future business needs
  • Includes thorough assessment of current state of each workload (costs, scalability, support/skills, security needs/risks)
  • Utilizes GSI’s gSuccess Methodology to build a roadmap to provide a targeted migration strategy to “move and improve” with a full analysis of ROI and TCO, and future state support models.
