Build Out A Comprehensive Cloud Strategy

Cloud computing continues to evolve from a market disruptor to the expected approach for IT. Although cloud computing has become a foundation of digital business, many organizations still struggle to optimize this powerful tool. Gartner estimates that less than one-third of enterprises have a documented cloud strategy.

It’s crucial, therefore, that IT leaders and enterprise architects prepare an overarching cloud strategy for their organizations. IT leaders must develop a decision framework to systematically examine use-case scenarios for adopting cloud or hybrid cloud computing. Such a framework forms the backbone of any successful cloud strategy.
