Embracing a cloud operating model is not just about adopting cloud technology but adopting a new way of working with other areas of the business as well. Positioning your organization for a multi-cloud world means thinking beyond IT:
Align IT goals to the customer: how will future needs of the customer (like curbside pickup during a pandemic) inform the work that’s going to come from the IT organization?
Remain focused on business continuity in addition to disaster recovery: what does the business do once IT has brought systems back online?
Understand that digital transformation delivers business outcomes: how do you ensure that cloud enables that transformation for the rest of the organization?
