Why define a cloud strategy?
Migrating to the cloud doesn’t automatically guarantee lower costs. Many companies who made the transition without a clear cloud IT strategy see no change in their expenses. Why? Because their processes weren’t suited to cloud computing. Even if the initial outlay was lower, higher operating costs may have cancelled out those savings.
The decision to move to the cloud depends on your company’s circumstances—not what everyone else is doing. It’s important to thoroughly assess whether cloud computing makes sense for your specific environment.
