“The speed and scalability provided by cloud infrastructure is key to digital transformation. A cloud-first strategy ensures sufficient IT resources for internal service development and digital transformation projects as well as providing rapid access to the latest hardware and software,” says KuppingerCole Principal Analyst Martin Kuppinger.
However, despite the above-mentioned potential benefits, user experience, specific cost, governance, and security must be considered. “Companies moving to a cloud-first strategy also need to have a roadmap and ensure that the move is aligned with the overall business strategy,” Kuppinger adds.
He will talk about this and how companies can navigate the challenges of a cloud-first strategy at KuppingerCole’s third free virtual event on June 16 dedicated to Cloud First – Strategy & Roadmap. Martin Kuppinger will be joined by international experts from organizations such as Lufthansa, EnBW, and International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. The event will be moderated by KuppingerCole’s CEO Designate and former CISO of Deutsche Bank Berthold Kerl.
