EVOLVE TO A CLOUD OPERATING MODEL, EVERYWHERE

Any transformation makes new demands on people and organizations. And cloud transformations are no different, no matter your mix of platforms across on-premises cloud, public clouds, colocated data centers, or edge locations. But a successful transformation must consider more than the technology. In fact, most transformation projects succeed or fail not because of technology choices, but because of issues with strategy, skills, or culture. An adoption framework gives you a structure and common language to understand where you are in your journey, benchmark against best practice, and prioritize the right next steps for your organization.

Article: Evolve your operating model
A common language for transformation

We have brought together HPE’s extensive experience in public cloud transformation, modernization to on-premises cloud, and leadership in edge computing and networking to develop a set of field-tested best practices for helping organizations understand where they are and where to go next in delivering a cloud experience across all their IT. Our framework and methodology have been field-tested in organizations of all sizes, across all industries and geographies. Using this proven framework, our experts will help guide you through four key stages of your cloud transformation journey.

THE STEPS IN YOUR JOURNEY

Define

Any transformation needs to be tied to clear business objectives. By understanding these objectives, you can define clear goals for your transformation, and plot the right path forward.

Evaluate

An effective plan to advance your transformation takes stock of where you are and advances your maturity across people, process, and technology in a measurable, achievable, and incremental way.

Evolve

Once you have defined your goals and evaluated where you are against your objectives and your peers, you can commit to a course of action and begin your transformation.

Operate

Sound governance is the basis of all effective operations. A cloud operating model raises the stakes for operations because the increased agility and velocity of change requires greater changes in process and people.

THE CAPABILITIES THAT WILL DRIVE YOU FORWARD

Our adoption framework is structured around eight capability domains, spanning the people, process and technology components of a cloud operating model.  Within each domain, we can help you evaluate where you currently are, and determine the measurable next steps you can take to advance your capability.

Security

Ensure security

Security must be baked into every part of your edge-to-cloud estate. This requires the right tools, processes, and people working together with the same goals.
