Build your enterprise cloud
It’s not if - but how and when
As IT operations and maintenance eat up increasingly large portions of IT spending, enterprises are seeing fewer and fewer of their IT investment dollars producing new capabilities. In response, they are looking to the flexibility, potential cost savings and innovation promised by cloud computing.
A number of adoption barriers, however, exist: executives remain uncertain about the concept; legacy systems can make large-scale cloud integration difficult and impractical; many perceive cloud applications to be complex and expensive; and privacy concerns make companies leery of letting their information circulate through public—even foreign—infrastructures.
In order for large, global enterprises to embrace and leverage the very real advantages of cloud computing, they require a clear roadmap to assessing and surmounting these challenges. The Deloitte publication Build your enterprise cloud looks at the evolution of cloud computing, as well as the challenges large enterprises face as they move into the cloud, including adoption strategies, risk management and ROI expectations.
Understanding the cloud now can help you optimize your current IT model and prepare to leverage the virtual networks and applications of the future.
