PACKAGES

We currently offer three packages for our cloud jumpstart services. These packages are designed to address factors that might be holding up the movement of GIS to the cloud. Expand each package to learn more.

Cloud Readiness Plan

With the goals of the client in mind, Quartic will perform an assessment of the various components that affect Cloud GIS success. Included are recommendations for each component. In this plan, there are two tiers: "BASIC" and "ADVANCED". These tiers are based on organization size. Larger organizations will require the "ADVANCED" tier.

Cloud Migration Plan

Quartic will set up and configure specified components of cloud, software, and data. Two different tiers of service are offered. The "BASIC" tier is best for publish only use, or small organizations to get up-and-running in the cloud. The "ADVANCED" tier is best for larger or more complex organizations needing integration between on-premise components and the cloud. In order to purchase this package, the "Cloud Readiness Plan" also has to be purchased.

CONSIDERATIONS

An organization can move all of its GIS components to a fully hosted cloud environment. This is called an "off-premise" GIS infrastructure model. Alternatively, If only portions of the GIS are moved to the cloud, it is called a "hybrid" GIS model. Quartic can help you understand the pros and cons and what will be best for your organization. We have set up both types of cloud models for functions such as: public facing applications, data sharing, editing, and mobile application access.

A second consideration is which cloud provider platform your organization wants to utilize. Quartic supports all three major cloud platform providers: Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, and Google Cloud.
