The Cloud journey: Strategy & Approach


Want cloud success? It's in the strategy, not the tools

The Cloud journey: Strategy & Approach

Many organizations are wowed by new cloud technologies and deploy them to solve specific issues. Instead of getting the magic bullet they hope for, sometimes they only add to their cloud complexity. However, one key to cloud success is a sound strategy that drives business value.

There is no magic bullet. Sound strategy drives cloud value

There are myriad issues and technologies floating around the cloud space: cloud security, 5G, Anthos, SRE, blockchain, Kubernetes, cloud complexity, and countless others. Each technology or design philosophy has its place in a sound architectural framework for cloud computing. In this episode of the podcast, David Linthicum and Mike Kavis sit down together to share their opinions and answer some podcast-listener FAQs about new technologies and cloud computing best practices. In a wide-ranging discussion, they cover both technological and philosophical issues, but they distill all the tech speak into one clear mandate: tools themselves can never be a panacea fix all problems an organization may have. Instead, organizations must plan wisely, remove complexity, and develop strategies that maximize the benefits of cloud computing and drive real business value.

The reality is we have to look at how we're solving problems with stuff, so we need to focus on that.
