THE IMPACT OF CLOUD ON THE DATA CENTRE

TAKING CONTROL OF CLOUD ADOPTION

Cloud computing will infiltrate every organisation whether it’s with the CIO’s approval or not. Make sure you keep cloud adoption under control.

The cloud hype is getting louder. But it's not just empty noise. Cloud computing is now a reality in nearly every business, with IDC reporting that 98.9 per cent of organisations use at least one cloud service.

Yet adoption is disjointed, disparate and often executed without the knowledge of the CIO. From individual users to entire business units, stealth cloud is on the rise.

The need for covert cloud adoption demonstrates a growing disconnect between what the business users want and what the IT department can deliver.

With off-premise options snapping at the heels of the corporate data centre, IT departments need to ensure their on-premise services meet current and future business needs. And that means lower costs, greater agility and higher availability.

Automation, standardisation and virtualisation can all help unlock these benefits. But it’s not just about getting the corporate data centre foundations right; IT departments also need to get smarter at deciding what should be migrated to the cloud and tougher at governing what stays on-premise. Otherwise cloud adoption will quickly spiral out of control.
