Use of cloud-based services has grown in such a gradual and disjointed way that it’s become the default for many organisations, yet there’s still a process of demystification and alignment required to capture their full value.

When we speak with organisations in the early phases of developing a cloud strategy, we usually start by asking ‘why do you want to move to the public cloud?’ Often, we find that they haven’t yet formed a compelling answer. They may say ‘it’s cheaper’ or ‘it’s faster’, but these remain untested assumptions, not guarantees. Discovering their ‘why’ requires an exploration of what vision they have for their organisation and what specific challenges the public cloud can help them to resolve.
