When it comes to strategically planning the transition to the cloud, companies need to think about how to reap the benefits of cloud computing over the long term. In addition to cost advantages, the cloud boasts a wealth of innovative opportunities to help businesses boost their competitive standing.

But companies need to consider issues such as security, compliance, legal matters, and specific IT requirements when evaluating integrating a cloud solution into an enterprise architecture. In addition, organisations need to weigh any commercial risks and take a planned and structured approach to cloud migration.

Cloud computing is at the top of every CIO’s agenda, and it influences a company’s entire technology and business environment. Cloud migration strategies raise critical questions for companies such as:

  • Is the enterprise and the IT landscape ready for the cloud?
  • Which type of cloud computing would be best for the enterprise: Infrastructure as a Service, Platform as a Service, or Software as a Service?
  • Which enterprise applications should be migrated to public, private, or hybrid cloud environments?

Cloud computing does not just happen with the click of a button. The entire business, IT, and service architecture should be taken into account when developing an effective cloud strategy. Most organisations lack the expertise and the time to analyse the current environment and develop a planned and structured approach to cloud migration, which requires development of an enterprise cloud strategy plus a corresponding cloud roadmap to guide implementation.
