Expert advice to get the most from your cloud transformation

A successful cloud migration is more than just moving workloads. It's a cultural shift that involves technology, people, and business processes all focused on the same goal.

Every cloud project is different, but best practices help manage the challenges that may crop up along the way. Companies most successful in integrating cloud are open to changing how they operate to align with the needs of cloud projects. Take a step back and plan. Support a culture of cloud learning, and provide opportunities for people to take on new cloud roles. Open up new lines of communication to get departments thinking along the same lines.

Cloud initiatives can be difficult to pull off. But with a little ingenuity, the right people in the right roles dedicated to the effort, and a prescriptive methodology, cloud initiatives can transform your business for the future.
