Cloud strategy and evaluation considerations

Wisegate, a private, practitioner-based IT research service for qualified senior technology professionals, released a new industry case study designed to help IT professionals who are considering moving applications and/or data to the cloud.

In this report, a Director of Data Center Services at a large US-based data services company, shares in-depth practical insight around his personal cloud strategy and evaluation roadmap. Included in this study are six key considerations for any business making a transition from traditional IT to cloud computing.

While lower costs, better scalability and flexibility, and improved utilization of resources are just a few of the benefits of cloud computing touted by vendors, the cloud isn’t always the best fit for every company. Every organizations must consider whether or not they should make the transition from traditional IT to cloud computing – and if so, how to prepare and make the right choices.
