For all businesses, agility, flexibility and the ability to evolve with technology is crucial. Cloud computing has emerged as an essential part of any IT strategy as a result of cloud services improving organizational agility and greatly lowering the burden of IT infrastructure and cost.
However, with new cloud solutions being introduced regularly, companies have to be sure they are getting the best capabilities across storage, business continuity, security, and application deployment, among others. This has resulted in many organizations putting off their move to the cloud under the mistaken impression that it’s an all-or-nothing prospect.
Take the First Step
As much as enterprises appreciate the practicalities and benefits of the cloud, they still need assurances that these mission-critical workloads will run as well, or better than their internal processes. CIOs are under pressure to move to the cloud in order to innovate and deliver digital transformation.
However, many are feeling overwhelmed by the scale of moving everything to the cloud—not to mention managing the risks, a lack of skills and resources, and uncertainty about where to start the cloud journey.
No two IT environments are ever the same, and the cloud is no different. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, because every company has unique requirements, technologies and implementations. Regardless of how complicated your environment is, there are easy ways to get started.
With these entry points into the cloud, a business can gain immediate benefits, prove a case for future investments, and make the move far more manageable.Once you have proven the cloud to the business (and to yourself), you will have the experience, skills and proof to take the next step.
The Freedom of the Cloud
Embarking on a cloud computing journey at any level can offer numerous opportunities and benefits for organizations. Cloud offers the freedom and ability to choose which services you can and would like to move into the cloud, allowing you to retain as much control as you wish.
