Digital Transformation for Cloud Agility - Assessing Enterprise Capacity for a Multi-Cloud StrategyEnabling Digital Business Transformation for Cloud Agility

The cloud’s capacity to increase business flexibility is now widely recognized. Enterprises around the world are adopting a “cloud-first” technology mindset, but significant challenges stand in the way of fully realizing the potential of the cloud to enable technology-driven business strategies.

As we’re crashing into 2018, very few IT or Operations people can avoid conversations that include the words block chain or edge computing. Both strategies are attempting to tackle issues around infrastructure and cloud expansion and data complexity and cloud migration, which will eventually tie back to is what we call cloud agility. 

And with explosive data growth driving the need for cloud adoption, how do we as organizations plan for and begin to understand just how close to the edge we can push in innovation with the realities of data sprawl, complexity, etc. that we face today?

To begin to tackle these issues, the Business Performance Innovation (BPI) Network interviewed six leading brands to get an understanding of how we are beginning to turn cloud expansion to move from ‘moving to the cloud’ to ‘succeeding on the cloud’. 

The report, titled, “Gain the Ability for Cloud Agility: Assessing Enterprise Capacity to Embrace a Multi-Cloud Strategy,”highlights both the huge advantages and significant obstacles companies face in embracing multi-cloud strategies. These challenges include such issues as more effectively managing cost, complexity, performance, compliance, business continuity, data and application migration, and more.

The report also looks at how enterprises are leveraging the cloud to keep pace with dramatic growth in unstructured data and the need to cost efficiently manage it to improve business intelligence, customer responsiveness and application performance. 

Featuring perspectives from IT and technology leaders embracing the cloud-first mentality, including executives from Viacom, Coca-Cola, DHL Supply Chain, US Gas & Electric, Embraer, and Jubilant Pharma.
