Businesses are under more pressure than ever before to harness digital technologies to deliver competitive advantage and growth. The drive for lower costs, faster services, rapid and continuous improvement are just some of the benefits expected from cloud transformation projects and IT investment.
You want to innovate. To transform your organisation with new services and help achieve the top-line. Security and compliance can seem like endless red tape and bureaucracy that simply get in the way.
Cloud is becoming an imperative for many organisations, driven by the C-suite as they realise its potential to provide business benefits. Their IT team know that moving to cloud, like any other major IT transformation, is not a quick fix but requires strategic planning. They need to move to cloud in a staged manner whilst continuing to deliver what the business requires without interruption and avoiding any unpleasant surprises or unforeseen costs along the way.
Congratulations for reading beyond the title! No-one finds business processes very exciting (except perhaps ITIL experts such as our own Neville Armstrong) but they’re key to business success and getting your in-house processes aligned with those of your chosen cloud provider is a vital aspect of moving applications to public cloud.
