One of the key problems contributing to failed attempts at private cloud is
the assumption that IT has a better understanding of user needs than users
themselves. This legacy mindset is one of the biggest reasons for user
dissatisfaction with internal IT, initial cloud service deployment failure, and
why public cloud services increasingly encroach on the territory of IT. The
good news is that just a small amount of collaboration will go a long way
toward increasing satisfaction and success rates. Business-driven initiatives,
best-of-breed technologies and the inclusion of service consumers and key
stakeholders are all recipes for success in cloud service deployment.
With that in mind, here are seven proven strategies for CIOs to employ
that will launch companies past legacy shortcomings and into a brand new
world of cloud innovation.
