Cloud for the enterprise has grown up. It’s no longer just a sandbox for developers or a sneaky, backdoor way for business units to get more IT resources fast. Today, the cloud allows forward-thinking leaders to quickly transform their entire organisation's IT to better ride the waves of disruption impacting business today.
Increasingly, enterprise organisations are able to act like a start-up and adopt a cloud-first strategy. The question for any app or workload – from the newest web service to the oldest legacy system – isn’t “Why cloud?” but “Why NOT cloud?”
If you aren’t already migrating some apps or services, or at least seriously considering it, you should probably be asking yourself, “Why not?”.
With so many of the myths about cloud being proved wrong and innovative businesses reaping the rewards of a cloud-first strategy, the “why not cloud?” mindset is currently winning the day in boardrooms around Australia and New Zealand. Of course, every organisation’s journey to the cloud is different – and it’s important to remember that you’ll bring your own baggage with you on the way.
That’s why it’s essential to understand the critical steps necessary to make any transition as straightforward as possible, then apply them to your own specific circumstances.
For example, you may already appreciate that a Cloud-First strategy represents the future for your business, but it may be that not everyone is as forward thinking. The secret lies in your approach, and in our eBook, we’ve identified seven essential ingredients for organisations that want to take a progressive stance on cloud adoption.
