Challenges Facing Cloud
The use of Cloud services has proliferated broadly since its inception. Ease of access, quick time to market and a “pay as you go” model made adoption and consumption very easy – not only in traditional IT arenas, but also across entire organizations. Companies look to Cloud for a variety of reasons including:
- Extend existing DC Capabilities: BUaaS, DR
- Flexible Workload Placement (Hybrid Cloud/Multi-Cloud)
- Regional/Geographic Diversity
- Perceived Reduction in OpEx, CapEx, etc.
- “Going Digital”: Marketing, Enhance Customer Experience
- Want to be Faster, More Agile, More Efficient, More Productive, etc.
- Unique Services (AI, HPC, BlockChain, IoT, etc.) & PoC
- SaaS (CRM, ERP, Enterprise Apps, Personal Productivity)
Despite Cloud’s substantial growth, there are still a number of challenges that companies face as they embark in the new “hybrid world”:
- Managing/integrating on-premise and Cloud technologies
- Lack of skills and resources
- Lack of capacity to absorb more change
- Lack of maturity of the current infrastructure
- Financial & Operational Impact
Overcoming these challenges opens the door to leveraging cloud to execute on new “digital strategies” and create new business opportunities.
