We’re entering a new phase of cloud adoption. Enterprises are eager to move beyond cloud exploration to cloud transformation.
According to recent research, 94% of enterprises already use some form of cloud and 84% have a multi-cloud strategy. Clearly, the cloud model has proven its potential. Now enterprises want more. They want to take full advantage of the latest cloud innovations. They want to optimize their use of cloud services. They want to apply the cloud model to new areas of the business. The question is how to select and implement the right cloud strategy – one that focuses on business outcomes first and foremost. It’s time to think bigger; to use the cloud to achieve fundamental transformations that take the business to the next level. For example:
- Accelerating innovation across the enterprise
- Creating superior customer and employee experiences
- Building cloud-based DevOps to expedite time to market for new apps and services
- Radically improving business processes in HR, finance, manufacturing, etc.
- Attracting and retaining top talent in every department and line of business
- Strengthening security and achieving continuous compliance
- Elevating the role of IT from tactical implementor to strategic partner to the business.
The cloud can accommodate all these business goals and ambitions. So, what’s holding up the goldrush to using the cloud for business transformation? Key challenges include complexity, cost pressures, skills shortages and cultural barriers, control issues, and the legacy estate.
The key to overcoming the challenges of cloud transformation is starting from the big-picture business perspective and crafting cloud solutions that deliver business results.
