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.

In the current business climate, you’re hard pressed to find an organisation that doesn’t put cloud at the centre of its IT transformation efforts. But without a holistic cloud strategy in place, transformation can stall, costs can spiral and your organisation could face added complexity and risk. As many organisations have found, just lifting and shifting workloads to the cloud doesn’t afford you the true benefits of cloud scale and flexibility. That’s why laying the foundation for your cloud environment must begin with careful evaluation and documentation of your overall cloud strategy. Through years of experience working with customers, we have a deep understanding of the five critical elements that define a cloud strategy: 1. Business review 2. Cloud review 3. Foundational principles 4. Roles 5. Financial considerations In this e-book, you’ll learn how to address each of these elements, while gaining access to templates and examples that will guide you on your journey.

Across every industry, organizations are moving away from traditional IT infrastructure and moving their workloads to the cloud. With the right cloud strategy, you can improve application performance, address security and compliance demands, eliminate geographic limitations and reduce costs. However, most businesses lack the technical resources, time or knowledge needed to smoothly migrate applications across technologies and platforms — resulting in business risk, disruption and downtime. According to a study conducted by Forrester Consulting, 71% of surveyed organizations are now more than two years into their public cloud journey, with 27% experiencing more complexity involved in integrating, maintaining, and managing the cloud environment than estimated prior to migration, and 40% reported that migrations and operations are costing more than forecast. Discover the insights you need for a successful migration journey in the following Forrester paper.

The guide to how SQL Server 2008 end-of-service can drive IT modernization. End-of-service presents serious risks to your organisation if you don’t deal with it correctly—or worse—if you don’t deal with it at all, including the loss of access to critical security updates and Microsoft hotfixes. Also, if you don’t take action, your organisation will be exposed to potential disruption from hackers and malware. That means valuable customer data could be exposed to attack, risking monetary and reputational damage. And from a regulatory standpoint, there could be compliance issues with rules such as HIPAA, PCI, and GDPR. On the other hand, if you take well-considered action that aligns with your long-term strategy, end-of-service is also an opportunity for data estate modernisation. In this e-book, we’ll discuss how migration to Azure as part of your fix for SQL Server 2008 end-of-service solves for all these, and opens doors for the future of your data-driven business.
