Unlike many smaller companies, large organisations in New Zealand are still figuring out if they’re ready to embrace the cloud. But before an organisation can determine if it’s ready, it must first understand where it sits now on the IT maturity scale.
An IT maturity assessment is the logical place to start, as it’s designed to benchmark your current IT capabilities against a commonly-applied scale. It shows the path and the steps to maturity by helping to identify areas of strength, expose gaps and chart an actionable improvement plan.
It’s all about fulfilling potential – being clear on the business strategy and how cloud will enable the organisation.
Shifting to a truly agile and flexible business model can be challenging. Companies are often faced with immature IT processes that slow down or prohibit moving to the cloud, and may also introduce risk or increase costs.
Security is a key concern , and being unclear as to how to meet this challenge is also holding enterprises back. Cloud adoption necessitates a dramatic shift in an enterprise’s security strategy. The prevalent attitude must change from one of ‘preventing breaches’ to ‘preventing and managing risks, including breaches’. The focus must broaden to also encompass monitoring, detection and response. Voco regularly helps clients rethink security programmes and architectures to manage the risks that come with cloud computing.
