Get Clear on Cloud Computing
A move to cloud can bring tremendous business benefits, including improved availability, resiliency and customer experience. However, it may also cost you more than you planned, if you don’t have a sound cloud strategy.
According to RightScale 2017 State of the Cloud Report, cloud users underestimate the amount of wasted cloud spend. Respondents estimate 30 percent waste, while RightScale has measured actual waste is between 30 and 45 percent.
Much of this wasted cloud spend stems from a lack of a documented, enterprise-wide cloud strategy. To get the benefits of cloud computing — without driving up your company's costs — you should create and implement a plan. It starts with defining what cloud means to your organization and then create a cloud strategy that understands all of your cloud costs.
