Capability ExpertiseTechnologyCloud Strategy & Migration

What challenges do your business face regarding cloud strategy and migration?

The events of 2020-2021 have accelerated the pace of cloud adoption, bringing with it organizational, skill, and security challenges. Organizations are seeking assistance guiding their enterprise throughout this sometimes-foggy journey, charged with rapidly delivering business value while also focused on mitigating cloud, data, and security risks. Key challenges include:
  • Enterprise challenges including changed business value propositions, unclear priorities for individual contributors, and still-maturing best practices and governing principles
  • Application challenges including the shifting balance between application owner, business unit, cloud team, and leadership direction—all compounded by the changed financial model, skillsets, and underlying security model for cloud
  • Data challenges including storage, usage, access, and shared security models to master, along with enterprise-wide governance for data management and protection
  • Compliance challenges including adapting on-premise protection models and products to a shared-responsibility cloud model often leveraging different products and tools
  • Customer challenges including high expectations for both technology and business capabilities, in terms of features and timelines
  • Leadership challenges including the assumption of a more transparent and rapid management style requiring explicit management training and support
