CA Technologies has bundled up a set of tools and consultancy services to help organisations choose which applications they should move to the cloud and which they shouldn't.

The CA Cloud 360 product, announced at CA World in Las Vegas on Monday, has four main components. It combines workshops and analysis from CA Technologies with tools for managing service-level agreements; predicting application needs across varied IT stacks; and simulating the behaviour of software in cloud environments.

"CA Cloud 360 offers enterprises a flexible four-phased approach that guides CIOs through the often complex application and business services rationalisation process required for delivering cloud services," the company wrote in a statement. "The solution helps enterprise customers to model and simulate components of composite services, identify capacity requirements and understand cost structures to improve design and deployment before making final investment decisions."

Many of CA Technologies' consultants for the product come from people it gained with the 4Base Technologies acquisition in 2010, the company said.

With the announcement CA joins a growing roster of technology companies, such as HP with its Cloud Discovery Workshops, IBM via its cloud centres and Dell with its solution centres, that try to offer consultancy services alongside technologies.

Pricing and dates of availability were not available.
