Cloud is both a catalyst and enabler; public cloud pledging speed to market, heightened security, lower costs, automated self-service delivery, and more innovation. Its promise isn’t static, though; it is constantly changing, and – as it does – so does its complexity. In the scramble to reap its benefits, most have opted for the road most travelled and consumption has largely been through a DIY approach. The result? Many just aren’t using cloud services in the right way.
Moving to the cloud should enable your business by improving service and reducing cost. Managed correctly the cloud should unlock these much-lauded benefits as well as drive and encourage the acquisition of the latest technologies. When it is badly managed technical debt, and cost, can spiral out of control. So how should businesses keep pace and harness the full value of the cloud?
As cloud continues to evolve it is important to choose a partner to help you manage the service, with a strategy aligned to your business needs, goals and direction – one who will really promote growth as the product matures. Whilst a smooth deployment is critical initially, it is essential to look beyond that. Your organisation will need to be supported throughout the lifecycle of the cloud application. Many partners are failing to deliver this crucial ongoing insight.
If your business isn’t being supported by a partner that addresses your fears about the cloud - be it business risk, security, governance, cost creep or on-going management - now is the time to find one that will. Your managed service provider should be more than just a vendor, they will be your strategic partner - assisting with the ever-changing requirements within your digital ecosystem.
