Heads Up: Cloud Adoption Strategy Insider Tips
May 4, 2021
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: What drives IT executives to initiate cloud migration? Deloitte’s survey of more than 500 IT leaders and executives reveals that security and data protection is the top driver. With 58 percent of respondents ranking it No. 1 or 2, security is top-of-mind for everyone, from C-suite IT executives and senior leaders to IT managers and developers.…The No. 2 driver for cloud migration, data modernization, primarily involves moving data from legacy to modern databases.” [https://www2.deloitte.com/us/en/insights/industry/technology/why-organizations-are-moving-to-the-cloud.html] Let’s look at this trend more closely. Moving to the cloud is more than just a technology replacement; it is also a mindset change. The key to cloud adoption is leveraging cloud technologies in the right way, taking a center of excellence “COE” or “app factory” approach with a fail-forward, continuous iteration and improvement mindset. This is already happening in many companies, as millennials in the workforce are demanding increased automation and digitalization of key business processes. And rapid application development tools plus the empowerment of business user “citizen developers” – less reliant on central IT, with more development within lines of business – are reducing effort and shortening timelines. How can your organization adopt cloud efficiently and productively? We’ll ask Sarah Lottman at Deloitte, and Chris Aron and Vipin Varappurath at SAP, for their take on Heads Up: Cloud Adoption Strategy Insider Tips.
