Axway details what IT departments must do to prepare for cloud adoption
PHOENIX, Jun 06 — Axway, the Business Interaction Networks company, today details the steps IT departments must take to ensure seamless cloud adoption. Cloud computing continues to gain acceptance within the enterprise segment and in turn, software vendors are working in order to meet the need. Specifically enterprise IT has addressed the challenges concerning security, integration with internal applications, and performance and reliability relating to the cloud. With the combination of maturing platforms, generational and cultural shifts, and compelling economics, cloud-based solutions become the undeniable choice for nearly all future non-core technology purchases. Once adopted, the cloud is inherently scalable and can be online within hours, designed specifically on the organizational needs.
From research and customer insights, Axway predicts that by 2014 the cloud will be the primary operating model for enterprise IT organizations, bringing unprecedented change to IT and competitive advantage to early adopters, ultimately redefining the role of enterprise IT itself.
With cloud adoption taking off, what must enterprise IT do now to prepare for the future?
"Cloud adoption has become increasingly complex. Enterprise IT must take steps to effectively prepare," said Paul French, vice president, product and solutions marketing, Axway. "It is important that they assess their organizations' needs in relation to which type of cloud to adopt, how they will meet their service level agreements, what enterprise application stores or marketplaces they will develop or adopt and the service management role that the IT department will play in the adoption."
