Maintaining cloud migration momentum: infographic

Digital growth and success requires business agility enabled by the cloud. These days, competitive organisations respond rapidly to market conditions, are functionally well-integrated, and collaborative in their approach. Successful businesses stay ahead of the curve by delivering new capabilities that win, serve, and retain increasingly demanding customers. In short, business change, driven by technology adoption, is the new norm.

In February 2018, Rackspace commissioned Forrester Consulting to understand and share the lessons learned from migrating systems, applications, and workloads to the cloud. Forrester conducted an online survey with 326 business and IT professionals to explore this topic. Each was selected because of their knowledge, influence, or decision-making responsibility for previous, current, or future cloud migration projects.

The study surfaced a key theme around the expectation versus reality of ongoing cloud migration. Envisioning, managing, and driving cloud adoption across an entire organisation is a complex undertaking. It requires collaboration from across the business to modernise and reshape operating models and establish IT as a key contributor to digital growth within the business.

Take a look at the infographic below to see what the study revealed.
