We recognise that the cloud is about business transformation, we talk a lot about how to undertake that transformation. But how do you know when you've started to make progress? What would a cloud enabled business do when presented with problems that would be problematic today? We'll run through three common business scenarios and show how making the business align around cloud yields outcomes which would otherwise be challenging to achieve. Whether you're already well under way on your cloud journey, or just beginning the switch, we aim to highlight some of the key differences in how cloud business operate and how this unlocks the efficiencies that are marketed.

  • As the market for cloud matures, we see what is common with any major new technology – it is the exit from the hype cycle into the reality of our current world. Cloud is working its way through this period of disillusionment where people’s cloud results are underwhelming and will come out the other side in a stronger position.This does not make it the WRONG time to think about your cloud strategy, but it does highlight an important learning from the early adopters with respect to setting and managing expectations of your leaders and your wider business.
  • The gap is quantified by the scope an organisation sets for their cloud transformation.The missed expectations are typical of companies that treat cloud like a technology procurement exercise.The success stories are companies who pitch it as a business transformation.Cloud is a hugely powerful movement which did not exist when current Enterprise IT Governance and Architecture was implemented. Do you believe you are lucky enough for a major technology shift to drop into your existing operating model with minimal change? You would certainly be the minority and this is why we are seeing issues like Shadow IT plague IT organisations. It is a reflection that the operation and governance does not meet the needs of a business driven on rate of development and plugging that gap with an Enterprise Cloud will not be enough to change people’s habits.
