Is Your Cloud Strategy Atomistic Or Holistic?
Who is driving the cloud initiative, really? The start of any cloud journey is getting all stakeholders to come to a consensus on the goals of cloud transformation. As a Business Leader, this one of the 6 most important Cloud Conversations you should be having in the corner office.A popular phrase we still hear today is “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts”. You can debate if this quote came directly from Aristotle or was influenced by his writings in Metaphysics 8.6, but what can’t be debated is the truth behind it.
"As business leaders move past parts-driven cloud adoption, it’s imperative that they lead the change as a whole."In the realm of cloud strategies and digital transformations, it carries equal weight. Every business has cloud on their mind these days and most have already began using cloud in some way, shape, or form. More than likely, initial adoption of cloud (or SaaS) has been with a parts mentality. That is, individual teams are solving individual problems. On the upside, teams are reaping siloed benefits, but the downside is just that – they are working in isolation. This might be great for that team or business unit, but a far cry from a company-wide cloud transformation. As business leaders move past parts-driven cloud adoption, it’s imperative that they lead the change as a whole. Only as a whole, can a company truly evolve to:
- Reimagine the customer experience
- Bring new services and products to market faster
- Outpace the competition
- Drive greater shareholder value
- Radically improve internal processes
