导读:成功的云计算战略要求达到灵活性,高效,安全,易操作和整体性的平衡,而只有CIO才可以帮助企业实现成功云计算战略的要求。

对企业来说,云计算已经到达发展的拐点,可供企业应用的一项全面的云计算战略是他们现在迫切的需求。目前,大多数公司采用用一种特定方式部署云服务,云服务主要由企业领导和研发者掌握,他们期望新系统整合的推送服务不是由企业IT部门或是在时间框架要求下执行。这些特定的云计算部署方案说明了云计算的解决方案做为企业业务技术组合的战略资源已经成型。成功的云计算战略要求达到灵活性,高效,安全,易操作和整体性的平衡,而只有CIO才可以帮助企业实现成功云计算的要求。

这项调查介绍了我们关于实现云计算计划书,表述如何让企业的云计算战略从美好愿景到制定计划到实施再到实现最优化的过程。这是对我们实现云经济的总体概述,由Forrester的分析师提供的12篇报告组成,内容详述每个转变的主要方案。

不同形态的云计算正在帮助许多CIO们获取更大的业务响应能力。云计算足够的吸引力让大多数公司以各种形式部署云计算服务,通常的形式就是软件的集合就作为一项服务。但是,现在的云计算解决方案可以根据整个企业的需求提供最优成本价,安全和高质量的服务,而不是仅仅满足企业战术上的需求。因此企业是时候制定云计算的战略了,而不是制定一堆彼此分割的方案。那么如何制定战略?CIO们需要手册指导来制定,实施和优化点对点的云计划战略。这项云计划的战略需要实现一下三个目标:

1. 建立可衡量业务价值的新技术。很显然,我们认为云计算的首要任务就是要通过“系统整合”提高IT部门的业务反应能力,而以前的系统是彼此分离的。系统整合的商业价值体现在受益增加,留住客户,顾客长期价值和不在IT人员考虑的类似方面。

2. 为云服务预留业务空间一开始就把与计算作为一个额外的IT解决方案和平台,而不是想当然的认为是已有业务的替代。借鉴90年代中期的网络技术潮流,企业那是不得不修改IT战略,预留业务空间给新的应用,人才,技术和销售商。云计算和网络潮流是一样的。

3. 启动组织变动的管理。把云计算作为一项战略技术就需要改变CIO在各个方面的主要运营方式。IT部门将会侧重提供咨询服务而不是强制管控来确保公司的整体性和高效。开放和选择自由将会加强。组织部门与企业领导的关系将会前所为有的协同。云计算战略需要将最重要的改变作为首要任务,而后续边缘的改变留在以后以为产生混乱。

采用云计算的好处将会转化成你组织部门的业务反应能力。云计算对业务反应能力的改变是立竿见影的因为:

1.这会强制IT人员更快提出更多的解决方案,并且保持创新能力

2.标准化化工作量,简化对新投资的决策和实施

3.CIO的技术和技能的提高,强调快速,灵活的业务行动

4.CIO可以进行动态成本管理,根据业务优先级和结果分配支出

Achieve Cloud Economics for Operations and Services

Only CIOs can help the business strike the right balance between the agility, efficiency, security, compliance, and integration that's required for a successful cloud strategy.

Cloud computing has reached an inflection point for enterprises — a comprehensive strategy for its use is now required. Until now, most companies had adopted cloud services in an ad hoc fashion, driven mostly by business leaders and developers looking to deliver new systems of engagement they felt could not be delivered by corporate IT — or in the time frame required. These ad hoc experiences prove that cloud solutions are now ready to be strategic resources in enterprise business technology portfolios. Only CIOs can help the business strike the right balance between the agility, efficiency, security, compliance, and integration that's required for a successful cloud strategy.

This research introduces our Playbook approach to our cloud research, describing how to execute an enterprise cloud strategy from vision to planning to implementationthrough to ongoing optimization. It is the Executive Overview to our Playbook on achieving cloud economics, setting the context for 12 reports by Forrester analysts that address each major phase of the transformation.

Cloud computing in its various forms is helping many CIOs drive greater business responsiveness. Enough so that most enterprises have adopted cloud computing in some form — usually a collection of software-as-a-service offerings. But cloud solutions now offer cost optimization, security, and quality of service for the full range of enterprise requirements, not just tactical needs. Thus, it is time to make cloud strategic, rather than a disconnected set of initiatives. How? CIOs need a playbook to create, implement, and optimize an end-to-end cloud strategy. This cloud strategy must achieve three goals:

1.Establish the measurable business value of the new technology.Obviously, we believe cloud's primary role should be to ramp up the IT organization's business responsiveness via "systems of engagement," which are separate from your systems of record. The business value of systems of engagement is found in revenue growth, customer retention, lifetime customer value, and similar measures — not in IT metrics.

2.Make space in your portfolio for cloud capabilities. Start by recognizing cloud computing as an additional set of IT solutions and platforms, not necessarily a replacement for your existing portfolio. Think back to the advent of web technology during the mid-90s. Enterprises had to open up their IT strategies to make space for new types of applications, talents, technologies, and vendors. Cloud is a similar change.

3.Start the organizational change management. Adoption of cloud as a strategic technology will require changes in the way a CIO’s domain operates — in every dimension. The IT organization will emphasize consultative service delivery rather than rigid controls to ensure integrity and efficiency. Notions of openness and freedom of choice will evolve. The organization's relationships with business leaders will be more collaborative than they've ever been. The strategy should identify the most critical changes as top priorities and sequence broader changes over time to avoid chaos.

The dividends from your adoption of cloud computing will be to transform your organization's business responsiveness. Cloud solutions drive a responsiveness transformation hard because they:

  • Empower IT pros to deliver more solutions faster — and keep innovating.
  • Standardize workloads to simplify decision-making about new investments and their implementation.
  • Revise a CIO’s base of technology and skills to emphasize fast, flexible business action.
  • Move CIOs to dynamic cost management to match expenditures to business priorities and results.
