Deloitte’s New Cloud Offering – CloudPrint

Deloitte’s New Cloud Offering – CloudPrint

Deloitte, the second largest professional services firm in the world (having recently lost that title to PwC), has expanded its consulting services in the cloud computing space with Deloitte CloudPrint, a “proprietary delivery framework has been designed to help guide clients through the process of becoming a cloud service provider or subscriber.”

While the name of the service maybe somewhat misleading, bringing to mind offerings like Google Cloud Print, the name refers to process of printing or stamping out something rather than literal printing on paper.

  • CloudPrint for Providers: a suite of services covering business and process transformations required to become an internal or external cloud computing service provider, including channel strategies, market analysis and maturity and operating models.
  • CloudPrint for Subscribers: a suite of offerings covering business, organizational, and process transformations required to become a subscriber to cloud computing services – including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), and Platform as a Service (PaaS) (See: Cloud Computing For Dummies: SaaS, PaaS, IaaS And All That Was)
  • CloudPrint for Sectors:  specific sector editions containing industry insights into some of the most relevant and complex challenges facing clients. Offerings include Subscriber editions focused on Banking, Consumer Products, Health Plan, Insurance, Life Sciences and Media; and Provider editions focused on Technology and Telecom.

CloudPrint is an expansion of Deloitte’s cloud practice, enhancing our overall cloud computing solutions and offerings for Cloud service providers and Cloud service subscribers,” said Paul Clemmons, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP.With cloud computing emerging as a growth area, consulting firms like Deloitte and its rivals like PwC, E&Y (See: Big 4 Auditing Firm Ernst & Young Joins Cloud Security Alliance), KPMG and Accenture (See: Cloud Computing and the Travel Agent: Thomas Cook Signs 10-Year Deal with Accenture ), which have their hands in IT strategy and implementation more so than the core management consulting firms like McKinsey, Bain and BCG, have dedicated resources towards building up their service offerings in this field.  For a look at Deloitte’s cloud services, look at the eponymously named page at Deloitte.

Deloitte has “identified a series of significant disruptions that could be catalyzed by the evolution of cloud computing…..(that) will become progressively more widespread and profound, creating opportunities not only to reshape the technology industry but all institutional architectures and management practices in an expanding array of other industries.” CloudPrint is an effort to ride that wave.
