Essential Cloud Principles – Beyond Cloud Migration
Cloud services are now mainstream, and many organisations are in the process of provisioning new services and solutions, as well as migrating existing solutions into the Cloud. Cloud adoption is now a key enabler of digital transformation. However, organisations adopting various forms of Cloud services now find themselves, by necessity, in a more complex, hybrid, and distributed environment. This typically comprises multiple providers and services, as well as on-premise services.
Service management principles are often quite well established for ICT, on-premise delivered services. Yet many organisations that are busy migrating to the Cloud have not recognised that many of these principles need to be adapted and enhanced for the more challenging environment. This paper highlights six key principles that organisations need to consider to successfully operate and optimise Cloud services.
