Optimizing the Cloud Lifecycle: The Platform Strategy that Powers True Transformation
The journey to implementing a strong cloud operating model is not a linear one, and it doesn’t end once migration is complete. You want to transform your business; to solve ongoing challenges and help meet current and future business goals. But organizations often struggle with complexity and daunting challenges that can get in the way of realizing optimal outcomes in the cloud environment, including:
- Having a sound cloud strategy starting point
- Understanding the advantages of a single or hybrid cloud strategy
- Understanding how to demonstrate cloud native value
- Understanding how to overcome a lack of in-house cloud specific skills
Leveraging the full benefit of the cloud depends on implementing a platform strategy that supports every stage – from planning to optimization. To ensure a better cloud experience, cloud architects should contemplate two important considerations:
- Embracing a applications-centric approach.
- Choosing a single platform with multi-cloud support.
Embrace an Applications-Centric Approach
A software platform that enables an applications-centric view can position organizations for a more successful cloud journey in several ways, from reducing waste in engineering cycles to understanding overlooked areas of cost optimization. Application dependency mapping pre-cloud and in-cloud allow users to manage workloads into move groups for migration as well as understand the dependencies across applications in the cloud for cost management.
As users think about their own cloud journey, optimizing on high precision granularity allows enterprises to realize efficiencies with better flexibility and scale. This is where having insights grounded in high precision data science matter to ensure that strategies, and not just data, drive decisions.
Choose a Single Platform with Multi-Cloud Support
To streamline the cloud management process and build the most ideal model for your organization, look for a solution with multi-dimensional capabilities across the entire cloud journey. Choosing a single platform from pre-cloud migration to in-cloud management allows partners and enterprises to have an integrated product and service delivery experience.
Additionally, cloud native expertise allows partners and enterprises to employ a cloud agnostic or multi-cloud expertise. With an in-depth understanding of leading cloud service providers, next-gen platforms allows users to develop or execute on a cloud strategy of choice without the hassle or constraints of in-housing cloud service specific capabilities.
