The cloud offers lots of benefits to employees and consumers, but lots of headaches for IT architects. When it comes to evaluating the impact that cloud will have on your digital transformation, there’s no easy explanation. The answer mostly depends on whom you ask.
There’s potentially a gulf of pain between using cloud services and successfully using cloud services. How will you know if you’re being successful? You need the metrics that match your priorities: agility, TCO, reach and productivity.
Private cloud doesn’t come in a box, it has to be built. And to build a successful cloud architecture, your people, processes, and technology must all work in unison.
Because your company has probably moved to the cloud, there are some things you are going to worry about, but shouldn’t: the cloud operator stealing your data at rest, bad actors intercepting and reading your data in flight, bad actors “hacking the cloud” and stealing everything. When you eliminate these things, then you get back to the things that really matter.
