Digital transformation? Don't forget to transform IT operations
Cloud migration & operation
As the cloud matures, many companies aren't reaping the value they expected. For some, it's because they haven't transformed their IT operations as they've digitally transformed. To maximize the cloud's advantages, however, it's essential to match IT Ops transformation with cloud adoption.
Want to reduce cloud complexity? Transform IT operations too
Cloud complexity continues to bedevil many companies who’ve leapt fully into digital transformation. To be sure, cloud computing offers advantages of speed, scalability, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness, but companies may not be able to realize the full value of cloud if they don’t transform their IT operations as they transform digitally. In this episode of the podcast, David Linthicum and guest, Technology Spa’s Troy McSimov, discuss Troy’s concept of event intelligence, and how companies can manage cloud complexity by transforming their IT operations as part of the upfront cloud strategy as they move to the cloud. Troy also talks about cloud-migration strategies and stresses the need for companies to ask why they’re moving. Finally, he and David debate the value of lift-and-shift versus refactoring cloud-migration strategies.
Development teams are becoming very agile, very automated, deploying at great speeds, pivoting. But what's happening on the back end is CIOs and CTOs are struggling to keep up operationally with this agility and this speed of release.
