With the advent of the public cloud, central IT has a mandate to not be left behind. Having an organization-wide cloud strategy is imperative for maximizing IT agility, while maintaining centralized control and mitigating “shadow IT”.

Your cloud strategy should be aligned to maximize your business value. The question is how? In this webinar we show our our five-step framework, based on helping over 1,000 organizations achieve cloud success.

You'll learn how to:
1. Identify your cloud motivations
2. Assess your current cloud maturity
3. Overcome the four common cloud challenges
4. Plan your cloud portfolio
5. Choose your cloud adoption pattern - Cloud First, Targeted, or Grass Roots
