Building on business outcomes
Connecting cloud to the transformation of core business functions is where the greatest impact can be realized. A basic 'lift and shift' approach for cloud is popular, but can't deliver on its true potential. A cloud-smart approach – beginning with a deep understanding of the business issues being solved and the expertise to apply technology appropriately – will result in better business outcomes.
A cloud-smart approach calls for a change in the way cloud is considered, something that's already happening in the enterprise. "In the past, everybody was talking about cloud as a system of engagement. All about the easy wins, such as digital workloads," says Karnik. “Now, they are harnessing the power of cloud to reimagine those systems and use data and cloud to filter out the noise and create systems of insight."
With a deep understanding of your business processes and operations, it becomes easier to identify how cloud can support better ways of working. Then you can introduce and apply gen AI, automation, and analytics to transform experiences for maximum impact.
