Episode Description

The Buzz: “I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now, from up and down, and still somehow…it’s cloud illusions I recall…I really don’t know clouds at all.” (Both Sides Now, 1966 song) In an Accenture survey of 750 CIOs in March 2020 (cited in the Harvard Business Review), many CIOs reported that only 20% to 30% of their work was being done through the cloud. Prior to 2020, many had planned to move 80% of their environments to the cloud “within the next 8 to 10 years”, but the digital demands brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic accelerated this timeline to 3 years (= 2023]. Many questions remain. What is "cloud"? Does it mean the same thing for all enterprises? What are the most common departure points and landing positions for a company migrating its business to the cloud? How do you define the value of this transition? Today, we’ll seek answers to these business-critical questions in conversation with SAP’s David Weisman and Lalit Patil on I Know My Company Needs to Transform – But How? aka What Is Cloud and What Can It Do for YOUR Business? Join us for this new episode of Ready. Set. Transform. presented by RISE with SAP.
