Organisations across all sectors acknowledge cloud computing as the technology of the future. But research suggests that, even in the data-dependent capital markets, use of cloud is relatively low: fewer than 30% of core business applications run live in private cloud and around 5% run in public cloud.
In theory, moving to the cloud makes good business sense, but in practice it’s a daunting challenge that requires careful assessment, planning and engineering.
Many organisations wish to migrate to the cloud to achieve the benefits of scale and cost savings. While these are valid aims, a successful cloud migration should also empower an organisation to do new things that show a quantifiable ROI.
