The pandemic has given all organizations a reality check that digitalization is a big differentiator and having the right cloud solutions is the only way to be more agile, reliable and performance optimized. In a world that is changing rapidly, organizations should be able to navigate challenges and discover dynamic opportunities in real time to reduce risk and gain a competitive advantage. However, it’s a daunting task for CIOs to ensure that various infrastructure pieces work together in a cohesive manner to achieve the true promises of the cloud.
Establishing an appropriate cloud operating model is therefore critical.
Most organizations start by taking a traditional project-based approach. But complexity increases, when businesses add new cloud environments into the digital ecosystem. Thus traditional approaches to managing cloud environments and workloads must evolve.
Organisations should be looking for a Unified Cloud Approach, where various cloud environments across their digital estate, securities, network, procurement strategies etc are integrated tightly - giving them the balance across the ecosystem and a seamless cloud operation.
