Cloud is an operating model, not a destination

The cloud is not simply a destination for workload migration that also somehow solves IT operational problems. Optimising for cloud is key for enabling digital business strategies and driving business outcomes.

Functional silos designed for traditional infrastructure-based service delivery are not fit for cloud service delivery. It’s organisations that have integrated new processes and tools to enable IT teams to work seamlessly across on-premise and public cloud environments that are most successfully tapping into the power of the cloud.

This whitepaper analyses various aspects of deploying a cloud operating model for private or hybrid cloud and gives advice for a smooth transition that considers your business’ goals and the needs of its workforce.
