All business initiatives start with a vision, especially when navigating change. Developing an action plan and strategy is essential to implementing a vision and seeing it through to fruition. This process is particularly true in today’s challenging landscape, as businesses are forced to fulfill goals rapidly when embarking on a journey to the cloud. With no two paths alike, organizations need a tailored approach to the cloud that can accelerate innovation as they enter into a digital future.
As more businesses migrate to the cloud to become more customer-centric, agile, and data-driven, they are faced with industry-specific challenges that continue to evolve. Along your journey to the cloud, complex regulatory requirements can also become roadblocks. Organizations need the expertise to help securely steer their cloud future-forward while integrating core business processes and applications.
According to a recent IDC survey, cloud spending is up an astounding 59% from 2018. With this forecast, it’s safe to say that businesses avoiding a path to the cloud will be left behind. But where does an organization begin with its cloud plan?
Your Cloud Vision: Leveraging Cloud to Realize a Digital Future
Businesses will continue to turn to the cloud amid the pandemic, and it’s critical to align with a leader in cloud migration that can bring your cloud visions to life. According to Forrester’s 2021 Predictions Guide, Accelerating out of a Crisis, the global public cloud infrastructure market will grow 35% to $120 billion in 2021. The guide goes on to state, “2021 will be the year that every company — not just the 15% of firms that were already digitally savvy — doubles down on technology-fueled experiences, operations, products, and ecosystems.” This shows that the cloud will lead the way, and partnerships have never been more vital to help achieve that.
Across the globe and various sectors, Atos has built unmatched partnerships with hundreds of enterprises to achieve higher business performance, increased user satisfaction and lower operating costs. Starting with a tailored Atos OneCloud experience, Atos leverages its expertise and real-world experience to create an Atos OneCloud plan that begins with a vision.
Your Roadmap: Creating a Path to the Cloud
Once a trusted partnership is forged, leaders must now focus on building a roadmap to achieve cloud success. Having an end-to-end set of services to enable a secure cloud journey is paramount on your path. In fact, according to Forrester, “Leading CIOs will embrace cloud-first and platform strategies for speed and adaptiveness, eschewing stovepipes for end-to-end solutions.”
With a unique set of 10 offerings in a powerful one-stop-shop, Atos OneCloud addresses the most complex and unique challenges. When creating a robust Atos OneCloud plan, enterprise leaders can design a business-driven path of pragmatic, executable change that incorporates artificial intelligence, machine learning, automation, and more. Keeping in mind that most large organizations were not built in the cloud, a tailored path needs multi-cloud orchestration to maximize application migration and portability, lower operational costs, and ensure cloud interoperability.
Your Execution Model: Putting the Plan into Practice
As businesses reach the end-zone, it’s time to strategically execute and start reaping the benefits of the cloud. Continuous innovation and funding, end-to-end delivery, and adoption are set into motion to deliver positive outcomes during this phase. With a new era emerging, adaptability, creativity, and resilience will empower companies to navigate ongoing change.
In 2021, Forrester predicts that 30% of firms will continue to accelerate their spending on cloud, security and risk, networks, and mobility. This critical phase must be completed rapidly, yet strategically, so businesses can adapt while remaining resilient.
Your Outcomes: A Cloud Forward Future
Clearly, the cloud is a necessity. Its value for making businesses competitive is unmatched. With even stronger enterprise adoption, a surge in demand for virtual services, and a global digital workforce in 2021 into the foreseeable future, a clear and strategic path is vital.
