You can’t afford to ignore the fast-changing infrastructure landscape.
The Business plans to increase its use of cloud services.
Both the Business and IT are buying cloud services, but Operations isn’t involved until the services break.
Operational activities aren’t clearly defined or assigned, and things slip through the cracks.
Operations staff are unsure of their role in your organization in a cloud-first world. Cloud abstracts away many day-to-day operational tasks.
There is no unifying vision to meet cloud-related operational challenges.
Cloud isn’t NoOps! Well-implemented cloud infrastructure reduces tedious, repetitive tasks, and gives operations teams time to take a greater role in planning, management, and governance.
Form follows function. Structure your operations team to effectively deliver important capabilities that support organizational goals.
There’s more than one way to change. Find the type, pace, and scope of change that works for your organization.
