How’s Your Cloud Migration Going?

I’m going to make a pretty safe assumption that your business is in the process of migrating an increasing amount if its critical infrastructure and services to the cloud. I mean, why wouldn’t it? The cost, time and resource benefits are proven. Gartner says that more IT dollars will be spent in the cloud as opposed to behind the firewall as early as 2016. So I’m standing by my assumption.

So, how’s that migration going?

I’ll make another assumption: moving to the cloud is forcing you to confront some organizational change. Maybe even some organizational push-back. There are always questions, such as:

“How is this really going to help our business be more innovative?”

“What’s the expected return-on-investment?” (and the follow-up: “How can you make that bigger?”)

“Is this really a safe thing to do?”

At Appian, we love the cloud. We want you to love it, too. And we know change can be difficult. To help you out, we’ve put a resource e-guide together that answers many of the fundamental questions, and offers some strategic advice on how to navigate the change, and make the most of the investment. It’s called “Your Business In The Cloud: What Every Business Manager Needs To Know.” Have a look – and let us know what you think.
