Reading the signs: Is your cloud strategy flawed?

Most companies focused on applications transformation to the cloud are looking to achieve the three most-touted benefits: cost-savings, speed, and agility. But true cloud transformation is a complex undertaking and many fail in their efforts to achieve these results—mostly because of pitfalls that could have been avoided. Here are some signs that your cloud migration strategy is off-track or could use some recalibrating:

  • Rushing towards short-term gains
  • Focus on cloud technology and not the impact
  • Disaggregation of IT departments
  • Lack of proper cloud security due diligence
  • Existing problems being replicated in the cloud
  • Attempts to do it all at once or lack of buy-in

  • Focus on cloud technology and not the impact
  • Disaggregation of IT departments

What makes cloud transformation successful?

A solid enterprise cloud strategy takes the business goals and desired outcomes into account. What do you want to accomplish in the cloud and what will the enterprise gain? Answering these questions will help you:

  • Prioritize and make decisions around each app: Do you lift-and-shift, re-architect, enhance?
  • Identify the best tools and innovate with top cloud technology: E.g., How will you leverage containers?
  • Keep customer needs front and center: How are you improving and measuring their experience?
  • Build a business case for enterprise cloud management and optimization: How will cloud generate value long term?
