Today, the move to the cloud isn’t seen as an “if”, but rather a “when” and the complexity of managing this move can be daunting for many organisations. There are many challenges a business can face when starting or trying to continue its cloud journey. From the technology aspect of choosing the right platform, ensuring there is a clear approach, gaining companywide buy in to even just getting a project off the ground, there are many hurdles that must be overcome.
Join Sungard alongside senior IT decision makers for this interactive 90-minute virtual boardroom where we’ll look at some of the challenges businesses face when trying to gain momentum in their cloud journey. Not just focusing on the technology involved, we will also investigate the cloud journey from a business aspect, looking at how it should be seen as a strategic business objective and not just a project for IT.
In addition, we’ll discuss the importance of knowledge, clarity and agility in any cloud transformation journey. Other key areas for discussion include:
Understanding the technology landscape to help you choose your platform
Taking a position to help guide your journey
Transforming IT departments to be an enabler not just a cost centre
Achieving momentum in your cloud journey whatever stage it is at
