Lessons Learned from the Cloud Journey

Clouds have enhanced the system designs, allowing the infrastructure to deliver applications and services at a greater scale.

Cloud computing has changed the way enterprises deal with their technology requirements. In fact, many concepts within the company have changed because of the cloud.

Many organizations have spent a considerable amount of time evaluating the benefits and assessing the challenges of the cloud. Business leaders and IT executives have been busy understanding the value and scrutinizing the downside of cloud computing.

While many enterprises have already moved their infrastructure and services to the cloud, what’s holding back the other companies to embrace it?

This transition to the cloud is an interesting journey to follow.

Many organizations, including several Fortune 2000 companies, are using public clouds for the development, testing, and production of their applications. Many other enterprises are still in the process of reviewing cloud computing, with some of them raising concerns about cloud’s security and control.

We’ve also witnessed some companies moving to private and hybrid clouds. Some enterprises would like to continuously use their existing IT infrastructure and software licenses. Hybrid cloud enables them to achieve this. Hybrid cloud platforms allow organizations to manage their sensitive data and mission-critical workloads in-house.

For many enterprises, business continuity is a primary consideration. They prefer not to encounter any significant disruptions to their current business systems. They only consider migrating less sensitive data and non-mission critical applications to public clouds.

One important lesson learned from the cloud journey is for the organization to consider all the changes that will occur with the transition process. This endeavor applies to all business aspects – the people, technology, and the business process. To help organizations prepare better for the change and achieve a smooth transition, they should consider designing and implementing a program that will address all the issues before and during the early stages of the changeover.

The power of cloud computing

Many satisfied customers have seen the cloud’s agility, flexibility, scalability, fast setup and cost reduction benefits. Cloud computing has also allowed many enterprises to speed innovation and time-to-market, something that was not possible with an on-premise platform. All these valuable benefits equate to better service and solutions to the end customers, which make enterprises happy cloud customers.

With its ever growing popularity, cloud computing has greatly influenced the way new applications are developed and deployed. Applications are architected to scale horizontally, and optimal performance is achieved by distributed architectures. Clouds have enhanced the system designs, allowing the infrastructure to deliver applications and services at a greater scale.

What the future holds for cloud

Technology continues to evolve, offering remarkable benefits to customers whose business demands also keep on changing. The IT evolution process is always for the better, and enterprises can continue to expect technology options that will deliver robust products perhaps at even lower cost, like the cloud.
