Cloud Journey Program – The “big how” for Cloud/SaaS

This survey highlights four important aspects that play a role in shaping your cloud journey: business value pursued, people & organization, technology, challenges to resolve – the big how for Cloud and will allow you to baseline yourself to see where you are in your journey and compare to others.

For the purpose of the survey the following definitions are used:

•  The Cloud = SaaS and Public Cloud in all its permutations: IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, Cloud native, Managed Public Cloud, etc. In this survey “Cloud & SaaS” is used to avoid potential confusion.

•  The Operational Backbone –  the foundation for a company’s enterprise processes and their operational excellence – and Digital Platform – the foundation for a company’s digital offerings and their rapid innovation – refers to architecting your company for the Digital economy, a recent publication from MIT.

The intent is to also provide a scorecard for your organization including financial perspectives on overall economics and impact on cost structure. To that extent some more granular questions are asked but positioned as optional if directional information is not readily available or to limited the time needed to finalize the survey.
