According to Gartner®, by next year 70% of enterprise workloads will be in the cloud. However, three out of four organizations do not have a cloud strategy*. Those who do, are more likely to make the most of the benefits and innovation that the cloud brings and, therefore, for enterprise architecture and technology innovation leaders, an enterprise-wide cloud strategy aligned with business goals is paramount to success.

Template for cloud strategy

While a cloud adoption or migration plan is focused on the “how”, a cloud strategy focuses on the “what” and “why.” It provides a clear decision framework that directly supports business goals and outcomes.

Use The Cloud Strategy Cookbook template to create a well-defined cloud strategy inclusive of

  • Principles and baselines
  • Services strategy
  • Financial models
  • Prioritization guidelines

A formal cloud strategy streamlines decision-making, drives better ROI, and reduces risks in strategy execution. A clearly defined cloud strategy helps businesses maximize their cloud investments and align with other areas of the business.

Now is the best time to start creating one.
