Very few can comment with absolute certainty that the Cloud solutions chosen will fully meet the organisation's needs and deliver value for money. Unwanted surprises are a common occurrence. Often Cloud choices are based upon preference and familiarity over form or function. What is important is that your organisation understands the stage of the Cloud journey and expresses a program to take the organisation from a managed Cloud environment to one which is fully optimised and delivering the intended value.

IBRS advisor Mark Unwin hosted a webinar where he discussed Cloud governance and the Cloud journey. Throughout the webinar, he examined and analysed some of the functions needed to ensure a managed Cloud solution is existing within your organisation. He also outlined the products and services that enable progression to an optimised state within your Cloud journey. There is choice and competition in the marketplace for Cloud analytical tools, and there are certified Cloud partners who can take you on that journey.
