It is pretty obvious why cloud computing matters to IT. It provides unlimited opportunities for development and allows IT specialists to focus on activities that provide value and become advisor of the business, rather than keep them busy with taking care of the hardware and fixing platforms.
A cloud IT organization is not so much centred around in-depth technical expertise but can concentrate on efficiency and delivering value on a much more creative level, thinking about strategies that can be game-changing for businesses. With improved speed and flexibility comes a reduction in cost and higher productivity.
In order to prepare a working cloud strategy, IT specialists should pay attention to several aspects — whether the application in question is ready for migration to the cloud, if the suitable delivery model has been selected and developed and if the proper cloud computing architecture has been designed.
