An effective cloud strategy is much more than just picking a cloud provider, creating an application migration plan, or having a listing of allowable cloud services. Instead, an effective cloud strategy begins with your company’s business goals and objectives. From there, a cloud strategy aligns those goals with the full set of activities needed to govern, manage, and use cloud services effectively. Here’s the challenge, though: How do you create a cloud strategy without expert knowledge of the technology itself while avoiding costly missteps?
This course equips you with the knowledge necessary to develop a cloud strategy from scratch. Migrating to the cloud is a common initiative or desire in companies but doing so doesn’t magically generate value. Additionally, effectively using cloud technology differs from traditional on-premises computing in several key ways. To help you navigate these issues, this course will begin with the central concepts of cloud computing. Next, you’ll learn how to create a cloud strategy starting from your goals and moving forward to assessing your readiness and evaluating your portfolio of services. Last, you’ll learn how to plan for application migration and successful operation in a hybrid operating environment. Moving to the cloud is a journey that will take months or years, and it’s best you know that up front. That said, there’s a place in the cloud for your company, and this course will set you out on that journey armed for success.
