The vision of Cloud is leveraging a roadmap that allows you to experience the benefits of a best in class product or business process, introducing new business capabilities that are appropriate to modern digital ways of working.
Coupled with a lean IT operating model, this will allow you to move away from complex infrastructure management to a best in class outsourced infrastructure that is managed and provisioned to operate on a scale required by the business.
- Many Cloud vendors do not have a complete business solution and infrastructure that compares to the maturity of on-premise solutions
- The products haven’t been implemented thousands of times whilst they are maturing rapidly, there are often gaps which offer a reduced capability in comparison to previous on-premise solutions
- The solutions are not always fully understood by systems integrators and support partners
- Businesses have not always fully understood the change in the operating model – both from a business or IT context
- Business functions need to understand the limitations of Cloud i.e. they may not be able to make all of the changes they want and need to understand how the continuous updates will introduce changes and new functionality
- There are challenges with updates which can impact the way companies operate
