The potential of cloud computing for all organizations is immense, but it also requires changes in governance, architecture, operations, and service management. This e-book demonstrates the fact that not everything needs to change; however, adjustments and new ideas in key areas can unlock a lot of the potential and make cloud transformation in any IT organization possible. Here are some key points from each of the chapters:
• Governance and a “cloud champions” team to drive the transformation can help bring the attention needed in an organization. This is best accomplished with executive sponsorship.
• Architecture for cloud-first applications incorporates security, identity, and modern application design for robust apps and data that are available for users anywhere from any device.
• Application development together with operations—DevOps—should be the default for new projects. The DevOps model fits with cloud technologies to effectively develop and operate cloud-first apps that users value and want to use.
• Integrating, planning, and managing cloud resources directly in the service management (instead of in shadow IT) helps both the business and IT organization profit from the flexibility of cloud infrastructure.
