Rethinking Your Cloud Journey As A Continuous Cycle
As we’ve discussed in previous posts, viewing the cloud journey as a linear destination is a misconception. Too often, businesses take a fragmented approach to their cloud strategy, focusing efforts in individual phases with different vendors.
For example, migrations often are outsourced to a managed service provider, infrastructure as code blueprints are deployed internally on an ad-hoc basis and cost management is procured from a third-party independent software vendor (ISV), where optimizations are viewed from an in-cloud perspective as opposed to a long-term product roadmap / application portfolio outlook. Users are trained and certified on multiple platforms and spend an endless amount of time engaging with account managers across tools.
Clearly, this approach can lead to operational inefficiencies and siloed goals rather than a united, 360° view of organization-wide objectives and transformational goals.
