Taming cloud complexity chaos
Part of the For Cloud Professional series
The cloud's value proposition is almost limitless, but as deployments become more complex, cloud complexity can degrade that value. To manage cloud complexity effectively, leading practices include increasing agility while focusing on improved governance, automation, and data architecture.
Reducing cloud complexity for increased business value
As companies progress further in their cloud maturity journey, their cloud architectures are becoming more complex, and that complexity can sometimes lead to negative returns from cloud deployment models. However, the tremendous cloud value proposition—and the strategic importance of cloud computing in business—makes it worthwhile to utilize cloud computing best practices and governance principles to effectively manage complexity and obtain higher returns on cloud investments. In this episode, David Linthicum sits down with Bala Rajaraman to discuss leading practices in cloud complexity management and ways companies can use them to leverage cloud computing for increased business value.
Discipline is going to be really important. Without that discipline it's going to descend into chaos...in that it'll reduce both the velocity of movement to the cloud but also the value that can be extracted from it.
The cloud promises to lower costs and increase agility. But the growing complexity of multi-cloud, hybrid cloud, and legacy systems can hold you back and reduce returns on cloud investments.
Cloud deployments aren’t easy. No project sails smoothly, without rough waters. But three things: lack of resources, lack of objectiveness, and lack of talent, can sink your project long before it has a chance to prove its worth.
