CLARITY Wednesday: Leveraging Cloud Technologies in Focus

Years ago, many viewed moving to the cloud skeptically due to security concerns, lack of control and high costs. These days, those objections have not only subsided but instead have become the primary drivers to move to the cloud. 

3 Cloud Technology Facts Worth Considering:

  • Cloud technology is so reliable when it comes to safety that 94% of businesses report significant improvements in online security after moving their data to the cloud. 
  • A recent Deloitte survey of over 500 IT leaders and executives shows that the top driver for cloud migration is security and data protection. Cybersecurity attacks are rising in sophistication, and a shortage of skills means that many companies are struggling to manage security in-house. 
  • As a great deal of data is on cloud today — indeed, 91 percent of respondents noted that their companies store data primarily on the cloud (deloitte.com) — it comes as no surprise that successful leaders view leveraging cloud technologies as essential to effectively modernizing their data platforms. 

Assess the Value of Leveraging Cloud Technologies to Your Organization

Cloud computing is the on-demand availability of computer system resources, especially data storage and computing power, without direct management by the user. The term is generally used to describe data centers available to many users over the Internet.

What value do you place on leveraging cloud-based product offerings and capabilities such as computing, storage, database, AI, and analytical solutions?

Determine Your Organization's Related Pain & Frustration

In order to fully assess your level of pain (and frustration!) it’s helpful to know where you want to be. So…what does good look like?  

A low pain example of Employee Training would be: My organization is leveraging cloud technologies to their fullest potential for our business. We have the necessary talent to support our cloud-based systems and are fully enabled to take advantage of the robust functionality/capabilities, security, speed and scalability of "the cloud".

What is your organization's level of pain as it relates to Cloud Technologies?
