Cloud Strategy

“If you have not developed a cloud-first strategy yet, you are likely falling behind your competitors. “

-Elias Khnaser, VP Analyst at Gartner

Cloud, one of the initial foundations of businesses in recent times that enables them not only to transform but differentiate and gain competitive advantage. Organizations have started to focus on cloud-first strategies as they pay attention to the need for cloud services across their business. While these organizations are trying to implement it, there are many who still fall back on traditional IT which includes deployment and testing. The pace of adoption of the cloud is often restrained with nonalignment of clear business case, a well-defined organizational plan or even the failure to identify the risk factor. Businesses need to develop well-planned strategies for a smoother transition to a cloud-first way of working.

5IVE steps while implementing

building and maturing cloud strategies

A cloud-first strategy should not refrain only till the IT organization whereas it should be understood and embraced by the entire organization. It’s important for IT organizations to focus on more than one of the technical steps that are required to implement a cloud-first strategy. They must try and redeem the merits of cloud to business leaders that will help them develop and extract the benefits thus giving a competitive edge to yield greater profits. ‘Cloud-first’ does not mean ‘cloud always’. It might mean something different for different organizations. For some it may mean a long term goal of shifting all their applications out of their data centers. For others it may mean shifting a subset of applications to the public cloud. 

Evaluating your requirements on a continuous basis can help make optimal choices especially for ones who extend and integrate the SaaS solutions. Organisations need to continuously evaluate their requirements and then compare it with the capabilities of SaaS offering to ensure the right mix of SaaS capabilities and PaaS technology.

Governance of cloud computing is quite challenging even if there’s an involvement of a single cloud provider and gets even more challenging if the organization moves towards multi-cloud. Cloud providers offer on-demand resources with endless capacities which makes it difficult for organizations to gain visibility and to manage what is being consumed. It’s wise for organizations to not only consume cloud services by a single service provider but also consider the consumption across cloud providers. 

Organizations can develop a well-planned tooling strategy by selecting and adopting the most appropriate cloud management solutions. In order to have tooling strategy requires a well-defined, systematic approach to certain the requirements and to match the tools based on the requirements. The main aim of this strategy is to minimise the number of tools required while fulfilling the needs. 

Cloud projects are a complex task and also organizations take time to develop the necessary skill sets across their affected functional areas. Another important thing that an organization needs to work on is to improve processes in order to progress through the path to maturity.
