These three factors can significantly impact enterprise cloud ROI

Return on investment (ROI) is a core measurement of cloud success. In this episode, David Linthicum talks with Deloitte’s Diana Kearns-Manolatos, senior manager and digital research lead for the Center for Integrated Research about how technology dynamics can affect cloud ROI. According to Diana, three factors stand out: technological maturity, how well companies  integrate technologies, and how individual technologies such as cloud, AI/ML, IoT, etc., can drive or detract from value.  


If you're going to grow your business in the future, it's all going to be value creation around innovation and creating net new products and opportunities, a better customer experience, a better product or service.

Diana Kearns-Manolatos is a senior manager in the Deloitte Center for Integrated Research where she analyzes market shifts and emerging trends across industries. She leads Deloitte’s global digital transformation research.

Many companies aren't realizing the full value of their cloud investments. The reasons are complex, but they can often be traced to a cloud architecture that isn't optimized for the business as a whole. The key to fixing the problem is a collaborative mindset.

Innovation, culture, and confidence drive higher cloud value

What do companies that achieve cloud success do differently? It comes down not to how much money they spend, but what they spend it on. Cloud leaders spend on innovation, and they use technology as a force multiplier.
