Why you need a cloud computing strategy and how to develop one

Written by Judy Redman

Does your company have a long-term strategy around cloud computing? New research is showing that despite the groundswell of interest in the cloud, most companies have not mapped out a long-term strategy. In fact, recent CRN and ComputerWeekly.com articles cite TPI research indicating that only five percent of companies have a strategic program for cloud.  


If your competition is using the cloud effectively to manage costs and deliver more and better services--and you’re not, you’ve given them a competitive advantage. HP offers two HP Hybrid Delivery services that can help you jump ahead of the competition: 

  • HP Hybrid Delivery Strategy Service gives you a structured understanding of the programs, projects and main activities required to move to, as well as manage, a hybrid delivery model. This service offers a patent-pending, model-driven framework to introduce hybrid delivery concepts into your existing IT environments.
  • HP Hybrid Delivery Workload Analysis Service analyzes an enterprise’s complement of workloads and applications to determine the best fit and compatibility for hybrid environments. With a unique portfolio of analysis software, HP experts gather service usage and demand profile data, and then develop a set of recommendations on how to best characterize and combine workloads in hybrid environments.

These new services coupled with our HP Cloud Discovery Transformation Workshop and other Cloud Services  are some additional services and tools to help you build a strong cloud blueprint.
