Private Cloud Design: Delivering Better Quality, More Agility, and Lower Risk

Document

Synopsis

IT organizations are rethinking their early cloud strategies. They need to prioritize requirements of the business and internal customers/ users in order to “right-size” their approach. we review often-observed cloud challenges while outlining five fundamentals of sound cloud services design for data management.

A CLOUDY CONSENSUS

It should come as no surprise that cloud computing is having a substantial impact on businesses and the IT organizations that support them. Our research of IT executives in June 2014 indicates that “the cloud” already consumes nearly 45 percent of the average IT budget and it will increase to nearly 60 percent in only two more years.

Depending on who you talk to in your organization, from the CIO, the CMO, a Line of Business (LOB) owner, or even IT staff, “the cloud” is described differently; making it hard to achieve consensus and even more difficult to deploy. When a common cloud definition isn’t articulated clearly in an
organization, it becomes extremely challenging to design, deploy and operate successfully. Therefore it is critical that all stakeholders, both
business and technology focused, are in agreement about cloud implementations and what appropriate outcomes will look like through time.
