While enterprises today are flooded with opportunities to expand the business, they face challenges owing to their traditional business process and operations at the same time. Enterprises are looking at IT to bring in innovations to help them become more agile and responsive to the changing market landscape. Cloud is considered a key enabler for this IT-led transformation in the enterprise due to its advantages. The change includes provisioning on-demand resources, being a highly resilient platform, and having opex cost structure.
With enterprises moving towards delivering ‘IT as a service,’ cloud is essential in realizing the business value and hence, is an integral part of any IT strategy. Cloud adoption/transformation impacts every part of the IT organization, the IT landscape, and the application portfolio. It requires a wide range of capabilities such as business processes, application, and technical architecture, systems development life cycle (SDLC) processes and tools, security, operations, and management to define and manage the cloud adoption.
