Cloud computing is not the future, it is the current reality. Be it on-premises or off, public or private, IT must have a strategy and plan for brokering cloud services.

Your Challenge

  • • The C-suite, vendors, and competitors are applying pressure on IT to pursue cloud. Others are benefitting from its elasticity, agility, availability, and IT efficiency gains, but is it worth it for your organisation?

  • • Neglecting cloud as an option may result in missed opportunities to lower costs or improve service to the business.

  • •Identifying which infrastructure or services belong in the cloud is challenging and difficult to standardise, creating a significant barrier to formulating an overall strategy.

Our Advice
Critical Insight

  • • The cloud is not a place. In spite of the fact that facilitated private and public cloud are appealing outsourcing targets, they are not the entire story of either outsourcing or cloud computing

  • • Hybrid is the goal. Most organisations are pursuing a strategy of on-premises and off site, public and private clouds together in a hybrid.

  • • Cloud is not fire and forget. A strong cloud strategy requires ongoing management and needs to account for changes to people, processes, and technology to be successful.
