Is Cloud Still Your Competitive Advantage? Shift Conversations from Technology to Business Outcome

A successful cloud strategy must focus on what the cloud lets you do and how it complements achieving your company’s business goals, rather than the details of how you do it early on. With tight budgets and challenges of enterprise-wide adoption and compliance, CIOs must work with key stakeholders to enable a solid cloud strategy that the IT organisation can partner with business units on a joint vision and timeline that fits the overall enterprise needs. Only then can CIOs demonstrate the power of the cloud in driving agility, innovation and future competitiveness. The needle has moved on cloud strategies - are you set up to lead the change? Join this virtual town hall to discuss strategies on how to:

  • Frame the business case for ongoing cloud migration and align it with wider company objectives and top management
  • Deal with applications or workloads that cannot go to the public cloud for compliance, performance, cost or compliance reasons
  • Put the right workload and applications in the right place for the right reasons
