How to maintain application availability and mobility in an ever-changing world

Moving your data to a cloud platform can consume significant resources, which can lead to cloud adoption becoming complex and slow. Datacentre migrations are incredibly complicated projects that often require multiple departments to coordinate efforts to minimise application downtime. Application availability and resources must be carefully managed to reduce interruptions in productivity and the impact on revenue generation and risk must be fully accounted for. With the need to modernise IT infrastructure becoming greater than ever, the number of choices to make is also increasing.

  • Do you adopt a ‘cloud first’ or ‘cloud appropriate’ strategy?
  • Is it a single cloud provider or is hybrid, multi-cloud the best approach?
  • Do you develop cloud-native applications or adopt an IaaS, PaaS, SaaS approach?
  • How do you remain flexible to reduce the risk of making the wrong decision?

Public Sector organisations are not an exception and are going through significant changes and modernisation within their IT landscape which is being driven by a broader digital transformation agenda. They are doing this against a backdrop of challenges including eliminating risk and complexity, improving resilience and cloud adoption. The continuous enhancement of technology solutions often means that the next stage of evolution is being planned before the current one has been completed. So how do you approach the challenge and opportunity of IT modernisation whilst reducing risk and ensuring application availability?
