KEY INSIGHTS TO PREVENT COSTLY FAILURES IN YOUR CLOUD EXECUTION PLAN
Developing or refining a cloud data management strategy is critical to a business that relies on the cloud for backup or disaster recovery. If you don’t have a cloud data management strategy, your business could be severely impacted. Here are five key elements to consider in a cloud data management strategy — and the questions you should be asking your IT team and the business.
While the C-suite may conceptually support migrating applications and data to the cloud, it takes a certain amount of groundwork to craft a
cloud strategy. Especially one that includes a defined approach for data management and protection that will satisfy the enterprise’s desire for a more agile, efficient, secure and reliable cloud operation. Close alignment is needed between the C-suite, the cloud architect and IT team to move from an agreed cloud data management strategy to successful execution.
So far, it appears enterprises aren’t laying the groundwork that’s required. Research firm IDC conducted a survey of enterprise IT professionals and found less than five percent believed their organization had an optimized cloud strategy.1
This is even more concerning when you consider the growing complexity of today’s cloud-driven environments. As many as 82% of organizations use multiple clouds, with the average being eight between public and private cloud environments.2
With the cloud as the driver behind many digital transformation initiatives, this complexity will continue to rise. In fact, IDC reports that spending on digital transformation will reach $2.0 trillion in 2020 with the fastest.
The shocking conclusion is that while enterprises are opening their wallets to cloud spending, very few have a well-developed cloud strategy, including data management, to protect their cloud investments and the valuable data they store.
