CLOUD STRATEGY

Cloud adoption is no more an option, nor there are questions raised on why, what or when. The biggest missing link is how to adopt it. Cloud is not all about “Public Cloud” (While most people think it is). Many customers take a tactical approach to Cloud adoption, which is not at all a bad approach. However taking a tactical approach may lead to serious consequences in the long term. If you are just a start-up and want to jump start Cloud adoption, taking a tactical approach may be the right thing. However if you are a large enterprise with loads of legacy application, clubbed with bubbling modern applications, with added pressure from business going the Shadow IT way, taking tactical approach may not be the step in the right direction.

Before you embark on a journey it is ideal to put some method to madness by defining the right “Cloud Strategy”. If you take a strategic approach you have something to aim for, you have a view of the target state. With Cloud Strategy the discussion is not just about “Public Cloud”.
