The Cloud Strategy Cookbook 2021 by Gartner provides infrastructure and operations managers with a ‘virtual template’ for devising a sound cloud strategy document, which answers the “what” and “why” of cloud implementation and adoption.
Gartner research resulted in several interesting findings:
- Organizations without a cloud strategy achieve less from their use of cloud computing compared to organizations with a cloud strategy.
- Effective cloud strategies align questions relating to principles and prioritization with other strategies, such as data center, security, and architecture strategies.
- Organizations often do not have an exit strategy despite it being one of the most important components of a cloud strategy.
The Cloud Strategy Cookbook provides infrastructure and operation (I&O) leaders with recommendations and guidelines on creating a “living” cloud strategy document that effectively aligns cloud migration and implementation plans with core business strategy. The cookbook approach divides the cloud strategy document into five major components: Executive Summary, Baselines, Brainstorming, Principles and Inventory, and Aligning with Other Strategies and Supporting Elements.
In response to The Cloud Strategy Cookbook, Sangfor released a detailed newsletter that answers the “how” of cloud implementation and offers the following practical preparations for a successful cloud journey:
- Identifying cloud adoption objectives for various industries for I&O leaders to verify against their organization’s goals.
- Being bold in cloud adoption and reinventing the business at its core to make the most of digital transformation initiatives.
- Choosing an experienced cloud partner and avoiding unexpected costs for cost-effective cloud implementation and operation.
