Linking cloud to business strategy and IT modernization

By adopting cloud transformation, an organization can implement new technologies, faster respond to market needs, and scale business operations quickly.

The universal questions of CIOs and CTOs: How to formulate a comprehensive cloud computing and adoption strategy? How to get started with a cloud transformation strategy?

Proekspert, as part of our cloud migration consulting, believes in drawing a cloud transformation roadmap to best prepare clients and simplify their cloud transformation journeys.

Cloud transformation roadmap

Migrating to the cloud requires strategic planning. 

Business objectives, the data set, and key applications required to be moved will define which infrastructure, platform, and cloud security protocols are needed.

This cloud transformation roadmap is imperative for keeping migration on track and ensuring an organization remains productive throughout the transition.

A cloud transformation roadmap includes all of the following:

  1. Define your business objective: both short-term and long-term cloud visions
  2. Establish a core team responsible for the cloud transformation
  3. Outline possible cloud transformation constraints
  4. Establish cloud transformation metrics
  5. Choose an application to migrate
  6. Choose the right cloud provider
  7. Make sure your process is aligned with the GDPR

What is cloud transformation?

“Cloud transformation” means migrating an organization’s operations to the cloud in line with the company’s business objectives. Transferring to the cloud involves modifying, upgrading, and moving an organization’s applications from on-premise hardware. The applications might differ in complexity, purpose, and degree of urgency.

Why companies look up to the cloud – advantages of cloud technology

Technology executives leverage cloud technology to address a number of business and technology objectives. Here are some of the key advantages of cloud technology.

1. Faster time to market

The cloud allows businesses to reduce the time it takes to provision IT infrastructure, speeding delivery of IT projects critical to revenue growth or cost reduction. When utilized correctly, the cloud increases speed to market and helps foster business agility, giving you a heightened competitive advantage. 

2. Better business insights and decision making

Cloud computing and business intelligence are a natural partnership. Cloud computing serves as a repository for large volumes of data. It creates an ideal platform to provide business intelligence applications when businesses need to gather data from a wide range of devices and sources – anytime and anywhere.

3. Enhanced customer experience and service scalability

With the cloud, businesses can automate tasks and collect data to create more effective and personalized customer service, online experiences, and 24/7 access to integrated services.

Also, the cloud adds capacity to meet demand surges (in response to increasing customer usage, for example), as well as to scale new services faster.

4. Boosted innovation and agility

Cloud technology is the key enabler of digital transformation and fostering business agility. It allows ideas to be prototyped, tested, and brought to market faster. The cloud frees resources to focus on innovation, and aids expansion of product- and service features.

5. Ensured business continuity

Protecting data and systems is an integral part of business continuity planning. Re-accessing your data quickly allows you to conduct business as usual, minimizing downtime and productivity loss. The cloud enables organizations to worry less about downtime and more about getting their business to create more revenue.

6. Increased revenue potential

Cloud technology is too often seen as a way to reduce costs, when its most valuable benefit is as a strategic way to increase revenues. Revenue growth comes through faster innovation of products and processes, plus improved customer relationships through more targeted offers and better service and experiences.

Navigating the challenges of cloud transformation

There are hurdles in cloud adoption, but progressive organizations recognize and address them proactively. 

1. People and processes slow down cloud adoption

Cloud adoption initiatives are very similar to other organizational change management projects. A cloud initiative introduces a totally new set of technologies, with some roles displaced and new roles created. Workers must retool and obtain new skills.

How to transform your corporate culture to embrace the cloud? Any digital transformation should be seen as a case for organizational change that will benefit the entire company. We may turn to tools provided by organizational change management and process re-engineering fields.

2. Data loss and cloud security concerns

Third-party data storage is a primary concern when migrating to the cloud. Fortunately, the cloud’s security capabilities have matured significantly in recent years, substantially eliminating this as an obstacle.

Nevertheless, a reliable security and privacy strategy should be developed early on. Equally important is that a corporate culture evolves which ensures data security.

3. Costs

Unforeseen costs can be incurred during the move to the cloud. While cloud technology is cost-effective in the long term, cloud migration can be initially expensive, and more so if planning is not done properly. 

How to make sure your cloud adoption expenses are optimal? CTOs and CIOs often engage a cloud adoption partner to help put together a realistic cost plan before adopting cloud technology.

4. Not having the necessary expertise

Corporate leadership often wishes to adopt cloud computing services for their organization but have little idea of the amount of expertise required to minimize disruption. 

Finding the right cloud migration services partners can make or break your project. Organizations should ensure they work alongside a seasoned and expert team, which has demonstrable experience in cloud DevOps, cloud environments, cloud infrastructure, as well as business and industry knowledge.  

Additionally, this team needs to remain at an organization’s side post-implementation to ensure the cloud migration project plan went as expected and, if not, get the organization back on track.

5. Vendor lock-ins

Vendor management is a relevant concern in every cloud strategy. While there is no silver bullet for avoiding lock-in, there are ways to reduce the risk by adopting the following best practices.

  1. Create an exit strategy before signing an initial service agreement. 
  2. Build or migrate your applications to be as flexible and loosely coupled as possible. 
  3. Adopt a multi-cloud or hybrid strategy.

6. Concerns with data validation

A successful cloud migration depends on existing legacy data and validating it to fit within the cloud. 

Setting up a new cloud infrastructure migration requires extensive cloud migration consulting to ensure that data can be validated and “cleansed.” Migrating irrelevant data is an unnecessary expense.
