A Gartner report: Devise an Effective Cloud Computing Strategy by addressing 5 key areas
Enterprise architecture and technology innovation leaders should address five key areas to decrease their organization's cloud risks and optimize its investments.
To develop a cloud decision framework: where and how should the organization consume cloud computing services, and how will it govern them?
To establish cloud operations best practices: How will the organization access, secure, manage and integrate cloud services across hybrid (internal and public cloud) and multicloud environments?
To assess the potential for hybrid cloud deployment: Does the organization need cloud services that execute in the data center or closer to the edge? What roles will distributed and private cloud play?
To explore cloud application migration and development: How does cloud computing factor into the organization's application strategy and architecture?
To think like a cloud service provider: Are there opportunities for the business to become a cloud computing service provider to its customers or business partners?
