Frequently asked questions

Cloud Deployment is the end-to-end process of implementing Software as a Service (SaaS) on your chosen cloud technology platform. This includes the project architecture, data conversion, configuration, integration and testing of your cloud technology before go-live.

Cloud technology provides the scale and flexibility to enable operational agility and greater efficiency whilst bringing an intuitive end-user experience for your workforce. The shift from on-premise systems brings additional security to your data while providing you with real-time access, insights and analytics. On top of this, there is often cost savings when moving from on premise to cloud technology.

Choosing the technology is the first part of your cloud transformation journey, but ensuring you have a partner that architects the right solution, has the skills and expertise and proven experience in deploying your chosen technology is critical to the success of your project. At Alight, we’re committed to creating an honest partnership based on our decades of experience to ensure you feel confident in what will work, but also what won’t work with your deployment approach.

Adopting cloud technology continues to be a priority for many midsize organizations, especially those wanting to scale and expand globally. Many technology providers are developing solutions especially for midsized organizations to ensure you can leverage the data insights and operational efficiencies the cloud provides, to make better decisions for your organization. We have teams of experts trained and certified on the Workday Launch and SuccessFactors proprietary FastTrack methodologies to bring you a quick and cost-effective way to move to the cloud.

It is our job as your trusted partner to understand your organization, processes and objectives to craft a deployment approach that mitigates risk and maximizes results. Whether you decide on a phased approach or a big-bang style go-live, our teams have experience in all types of projects and are there to guide you every step of the way.
