Cloud Guide: Find The Best Strategy And Avoid The Pitfalls

Jan Ammann

By now, the vast majority of businesses are using some form of cloud computing. The most suitable approaches and strategies vary from one company to the next.

To help you pick your path and avoid some of the common stumbling blocks, we’ve developed a cloud guide that covers some of the key considerations for your cloud journey.

When it comes to cloud computing today, there is a dizzying number of options, providers, and accompanying services available. Some enterprises run the majority of their processes in the public cloud, which enables them to benefit from agile, standard processes. Other companies build hybrid landscapes to combine the best of both worlds – public and private.

In any case, it is vital to first evaluate the business needs, define a strategy and objectives, and be aware of the pitfalls that could hamper the success of the cloud initiative.

  • How can cloud computing simplify daily work, and where does it make sense to keep processes on premise?
  • What do we need to consider before moving to the cloud, and how can we prepare for change?
