In today's digital era, the success of any business heavily relies on the efficiency and effectiveness of its IT operations. The challenge of managing a company's IT infrastructure is complex. To achieve sustainable and consistent growth, scaling repeatable IT processes and environments is crucial.
As all senior IT people will understand, running a successful business with diminishing resources and budget, or as it's better known being asked to “do more with less”, is a common challenge. Increasing productivity is essential to do more with less and propel your company towards greater success.
Most now believe that the argument has been won for Cloud IT since it offers unparalleled scalability, flexibility, and cost-efficiency. However, as cloud environments grow in size and complexity, managing the associated challenges becomes increasingly crucial.
This is one of the most common questions that my team get asked, especially for cloud and service migrations. The answer of course depends on the circumstances. What is more telling is the ‘approach’ part of the question.
Businesses are increasingly turning to cloud technologies to enhance their operations, improve efficiency, and drive innovation. However, navigating the complex world of the cloud with internal resources alone is extremely challenging due to the depth of IT knowledge and skills needed across different platforms.
As businesses increasingly embrace cloud-based IT environments, they often encounter the challenge of escalating costs. While the cloud offers scalability, flexibility and potential cost saving, unchecked resource consumption and inefficient management can lead to financial strain. To address this issue, you need effective strategies to manage and optimise your cloud-based IT environments.
As the need for organisations to move faster and become more flexible to meet the demands of their customers, IT teams need to be agile to innovate, launch new products, and test new processes. Creating a self-service DevOps environment with Cloudify gives developers, data scientists, and QA engineers a better DevOps experience with less effort.
We’ve all been there. We’ve had to set a password in a system and we’ve been told it’s not strong enough. Or we finally set a strong password only to be told 30 days later that we need to change our password. Password policies are not enough to encourage good security behaviour.
New Services That support The New Normal But How Do Businesses Get The Most Benefit?
In 2020, we learnt some valuable lessons about innovation in the cloud. Businesses that were previously lagging in their digital transformation efforts, found themselves on the back-foot and had to up the pace of innovation to support their dispersed workforce, remain competitive in their market and create customer experiences that would help them weather the storm.
In the digital age, migration to Cloud has become the top-most priority for businesses across realms. We are seeing a major shift in the number of ‘Cloud Hostile’ customers turning into ‘Cloud Friendly’ & ‘Cloud Ready’ customers and pondering on the best plan to implement the migration successfully.
