5 steps to get maximum value from a hybrid cloud integration

With more and more companies adopting cloud, the opportunity has never been greater for IT to transform into a service-oriented organization and grow the business it serves. According to IDG research, more than one third of current IT budgets are allocated to cloud solutions. However, in their haste to adopt the cloud, CIOs may be missing an opportunity: the chance to use this transition to reshape IT.


As chief architect for HP Software, I’ve worked with many customers on their journey to adopting cloud services. So I’ve seen firsthand how organizations can make the transition from slow-moving DIY shops to agile business partners. How does this happen? IT needs to become hyper-focused on innovation and offload whatever distracts from this goal. And IT needs to get ruthless about sourcing. Find someone else to provide the non-differentiated services, otherwise it will be a struggle to differentiate the products the enterprise sells. This means you must look at the services IT provides with a view to the overall service lifecycle. With this approach you can increase the velocity of IT service delivery and operate efficiently, without sacrificing governance.
