Cloud computing is rapidly established as the new normal for enterprise IT. COVID-19 is driving digital transformation. A Cloud Center of Excellence is becoming a common approach in enterprise cloud adoption programs to build cloud-specific best practices that ensure governance while maintaining agility.
Cloud adoption is more about people than about technology - A common mistake is running cloud as traditional IT.
As public cloud providers (Azure, AWS, GCP) keep growing in usage and capabilities, more and more companies move workloads to the cloud. It is crucial to recognize that embracing cloud is not a shift in data storage location, but a digital transformation of day-to-day IT operations and processes.
Often, organizations struggle to create company wide security and service management governance to be able to plan secure, compliant and cost-efficient deployments, without losing focus on agility.
