Advanced Cloud Computing Technology

Create a cloud strategy to maximize the benefits of cloud computing

Cloud computing is the new norm

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.

Maximize your cloud computing investment

Cloud computing represents one of the most valuable innovations in current IT and business strategies, but continues to be misunderstood and underutilized. CIOs should familiarize themselves with the benefits of cloud computing, learn about cloud security and understand what type of talent is necessary for successful cloud implementation.

Cloud Computing Insights you can use

Gartner's insights, advice and tools help IT leaders implement a Cloud Computing strategy driven by their business strategy in order to reduce their risk of failure and wasted investment.

Demonstrate Cloud Strategy Leadership

Gartner can help you understand the best options for your organization, including how to:

  • Create your cloud strategy
  • Ensure cloud data security
  • Develop talent
  • Adopt the right cloud services

Ensure Cloud Security

News stories have demonstrated that information can leak out of clouds. However, these examples show that it is almost always users, not the cloud provider, who fails to manage their controls to protect their data. Clouds are secure and Gartner can help organizations use them securely. 

Develop Cloud Computing Talent

Cloud computing success requires new roles and competencies. Gartner advises investing in a cloud strategy and architecture group, as well as cloud product managers, and recognizing the critical role of IT finance.
