Now is the time for IT leaders to rebuild and reimagine their operations.
To support financial recovery, now is the time to simplify the IT footprint and contribute to enterprise cloud cost reduction.
Here are some actionable steps you can take:
Nearly all our clients face the same challenges with the cloud. They want to quickly enable new capabilities and be better able to adapt to changes, they want to identify which applications should be migrated, and they are eager to see their costs reduced with increased efficiency. Many need to transform their operations to be digitally focused and modernize, simplify and automate their technology and processes. They may need a multi-cloud approach to meet their unique business needs, but they often don’t have the expertise to effectively look at their wide application portfolio and navigate towards their target.
All of this leads to frustration and often limited progress with their cloud migration plans. In a world that is increasingly hybrid and multi-cloud, with the complexities associated with data and security, this isn’t easy. During our planning sessions with clients, we often begin by acknowledging their concerns and reassuring them that there are specific tools (some of which are already in their toolbox) and methodologies to help them navigate this complex environment and guide them on their journey to cloud.
We recommend that a good plan starts with developing a deep understanding of their full portfolio to identify opportunities to optimize, migrate and modernize. The output of this process should help determine which applications to move, evaluate the potential value of cloud enablement for each, and the roadmap to get them there.
Whether you are refreshing key hardware or software technology, migrating infrastructure or applications to the cloud or embarking on a large-scale cloud or data center migration, the first step should always include the creation of an actionable view of your environment. This will allow you to make informed migration decisions, taking into account technical and business factors, and move forward quickly with minimal friction.
Join us for a webinar where we’ll build upon a previous event on application roadmapping to discuss how to clear the path forward to full-on cloud adoption. Take 30 minutes to listen to the discussion and you’ll walk away with a clear understanding of how to use tools (some you have already invested in but are under-utilized) and tackle these important projects that will contribute to meaningful cost savings.
