The Cloud phenomenon is here to stay. Yet, many organisations remained entrenched in traditional department and structures that split into Infrastructure, Security and Application teams. You can easily spot the great divide from the job title and job description (JD) in the job posting. Here is why more change needs to be effected for Cloud.
Organising for Cloud
- The split between Infrastructure, Security and Application teams must be eliminated and teams will need to structured for Cloud architecture.
- Cross functional teams needs to be encouraged because Cloud have automated many of traditional infrastructures and security roles.
- Teams needs to be focused on metering and cost visibility to leverage monitoring of supply and demand with Cloud.
- Your team must be designed to maximise Cloud functionality using Templates and Enterprise Architecture approach.
Digitalisation and Digital Transformation with Cloud comes with digital mindset and the spirit to change. However, we will continue to see a steep battle for Cloud resources to entangle with traditional Infrastructure, Security and Application. Find your change agent and effect your organizational change! Cloud is a total change, it is not just hiring Cloud!
