  11. 11.

  12. 12.  Enterprises are still experimenting with cloud  A recent study found “that 58 percent of the enterprises spend more than 10 percent of their annual IT budgets on cloud services.”  Cloud is relevant only for technology needs  It goes well beyond the data center. “Today 56% of enterprises consider cloud to be a strategic business differentiator that enables operational excellence and accelerated innovation.”  Security concerns are a thing of the past  Security is still top of mind when it comes to cloud decisions. But it no longer automatically means going to private cloud. Hybrid is the way forward.  Cloud consumption is simple  “In actuality, more than 65% of enterprises believe they need help to deploy cloud solutions as most lack the internal IT skills and expertise needed.” Misconceptions – study results

  16. 16.  Migration from existing service, changes to user processes, speed of access to data, new backup processes, staff training, integration into DR & BCP  Regular maintenance, tri- annual replacement, risk associated with on premises data, unskilled staff managing servers, backup and restore Cost  Free or small monthly subscription to service – perception that is the total cost  Purchase price of on premises server, installation and configuration Price Difference between cost and price
  17. 17.  Educate yourself – read business blogs and news articles.  Benchmark with peers – find out what your competitors are doing before they begin to respond faster, more cheaply and your market share drops.  Strategise – if you don’t have a trusted IT advisor, find one. Be prepared to tell them everything. If you don’t align your IT with your business goals then you will only get mixed results.  Count the cost. Be prepared for disruption to existing processes but ensure that the proposed productivity gains are achieved.  Take small steps - Don’t jump in boots and all! What can you do today?
