Identify and optimize cloud services, leveraging public resources, setting tiers and levels, and creating a comprehensive "bill of materials" for organizational needs.
Optimize cloud performance through defining a reference architecture, addressing performance and capacity planning, and ensuring operational compliance and security.
Align your cloud with IT and business needs by assessing current and future demand, managing relationships with service providers, implementing service costing and pricing strategies, and ensuring compliance with relevant regulations.
Strategic cloud planning can save millions, avert project failures, and manage risks. Before diving into technical details, thoughtful consideration of the approach is essential. Common challenges include the demand for "more resources, faster," cost reduction, and controlling unauthorized cloud use. Clear project goals are pivotal, especially when industry-driven initiatives lack clarity. Crafting a well-defined cloud plan, achievable in weeks with the right team, streamlines technology decisions, establishes expectations, and signals a clear green light for implementation.
Engage stakeholders from various departments in IT and the broader business early in the cloud planning process to accurately represent their goals and ensure ongoing support. Key stakeholders include the cloud architect, capacity and performance team, network team, storage team, and applications team. While it's essential to consider all stakeholders, the initial cloud design team can start small and strategically expand over time to build and develop the cloud offering.
