As part of a cloud strategy, CIOs need to present the business value that will be achieved against the goals to the management team and board of directors. and the sheer impact that cloud can deliver in terms of greater speed, agility, and innovation.
“A cloud strategy clearly defines the business outcomes you seek and how you are going to get there. Having a cloud strategy will enable you to apply its tenets quickly with fewer delays, thus speeding the arrival of your ultimate business outcomes,” says Donna Scott, research vice president and distinguished analyst at Gartner.
Legacy IT is getting more outdated rapidly and businesses of all sizes are innovating by becoming cloud native with an eye to creating agility and flexibility across all information activities. CIOs and Technical Executives are creating roadmaps that reflect the need to shift strategy quickly and efficiently and incrementally gaining value.
Key benefits of a strong cloud strategy are high availability and scalability, with a good ROI. Cloud native practices create organizational scalability, flexibility, and elasticity so that your data and compute requirements grow and shrink to meet your need now. When executed properly, a cloud creates substantial ROI and reduction of costs.
Private cloud on the other hand is for Enterprises where intellectual property, control, regulatory or compliance concerns, security, data governance and cost of service delivery are the key requirements. In such cases, private clouds run on-premises, in colocation facilities or at provider facilities, and they can offer similar benefits to public cloud computing. Private clouds can be very effective and efficient when executed properly. However, many of the cloud industries strongest platform solutions are not available to private clouds. Part of a private cloud strategy must address Platform as a Service (PaaS) needs and availability.
Hybrid cloud implies significant integration between the internal and external (or two or more external) environments at the data, process, management, or security layers. A hybrid cloud solution might be an interim solution or it might be the long term objective. Companies that need the benefits of a private cloud but want to leverage PaaS solutions on public clouds can be very successful with hybrid.
