SUMMARY

This report on cloud value explains that an important advantage of cloud adoption is a decrease in time to market for new applications, which on the other hand can make costs go down and improve product quality.

This study aims at capturing the value that the cloud. It notes that success in modernizing IT through cloud services is only possible by a comprehensive standardization and automation strategy.

Cloud migration does not only consist of moving and changing applications and data from cloud platforms. It’s a very complex task that requires companies to create new capabilities. Planning the cloud migration is not often taken as seriously as it should, the report notes. In that respect, IT professionals need to take into account the advantages and disadvantages of migrating each application or data asset. This usually requires talks among cloud-services providers and software vendors so that firms can get to know how their services are likely to change over time. Companies expect software firms to go the extra mile to help them deliver results. Therefore, software vendors must evolve their professional-services capabilities to meet customers' new and changing needs.

A key aspect of cloud migration is handling cybersecurity while the cloud transition takes place and afterward. Companies should reconsider how to protect their data and applications as they scale up the use of the public cloud.

Businesses will also need to reorganize their operations so they can take full advantage of what the cloud can offer. IT professionals will, in any case, have to learn the effective use of cloud-based services. This learning process should cover technical skills as well as fast methods so that IT experts can create and implement cloud applications in a quick manner.
