Gartner estimates $1 trillion will shift to the cloud by 2020. That’s trillion, with a capital T. It’s not if or when enterprises will move to the cloud. They’re doing it right now. The real question is why. And answering the why of why cloud computing fits 3 core principles: increased agility, reduced risk and reduced costs. Agility: responding rapidly to change without losing momentum or vision. Going cloud means resources on demand. Scale your digital store up or out during the holidays and then ramp up your manufacturing and supply chain capabilities to fulfill all those new sales. Risk: anything that can harm company returns. Going cloud expands your risk mitigation toolkit. Guaranteed performance of a major application by load balancing it around the planet. Or ditch your spare disaster datacenter and get out of the real estate leasing business. Cost: what you have to spend on all this technology. Going cloud can deliver predictable resource costs based on utilization. You like major capital outlays every 3 to 5 years? Make your profit and loss statement that much easier and let the finance team sleep at night. When you’re thinking cloud, remember the 3 core principles: increase your agility, reduce your risk and reduce your costs. And that’s the bald truth.
