Most IT organisations have adopted a ‘Cloud First’ policy to exploit recent changes in the IT service sector and align more effectively with the needs of their business customers. However, the journey to Cloud is not simple. It requires a fundamental change in enterprise architecture, service contracts, internal processes and most of all culture and skills.

Adopting an effective ‘Cloud First’ regime requires changes in governance that will help the IT organisation and its business partners to better achieve their mutual goals. These cover core elements such as cost and performance management; compliance and security; standards and frameworks; integration of applications and data; training and reskilling; and minimising business risk. 

This report sets out the range of exciting new goals that cloud enables – both within the IT organisation and those of its business partners, the principles of effective cloud governance, and the best ways to contract for cloud services.
