Grounded in the Cloud Blog Series on HP Cloud Management

For enterprise IT leaders, cloud-based technologies and services present a much larger opportunity for organizational transformation than merely a flexible extension of server infrastructure. The cloud offers a new model of operating and delivering IT to business users that can dramatically improve efficiency, reliability and agility.  However, IT leaders need to map out a multi-year strategy with a practical vision for how they want to evolve to serve the business better. The first blog in the HP Grounded in the Cloud series discusses the importance of developing a strategic plan for the cloud. Subsequent blogs will touch upon the following topics:

  • Building cloud on a foundation of automation
  • Selecting cloud services you want to offer
  • Setting SLAs for your cloud services
  • Securing IT in the cloud
  • Managing cloud assets for fiscal responsibility
  • Avoiding cloud vendor lock-in
