How do you maximize the value of your cloud investments? First you need to benchmark your cloud performance today to plot your journey forward. Accenture has collaborated with IDC to develop an InfoBrief to provide companies in Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) with region-specific benchmarking information vital to appraising your current capabilities, setting short- and long-term goals, identifying gaps and laying out a plan to truly unlock the transformative power of cloud.
While cloud adoption is happening at an uneven pace across countries in APEJ, the need for innovation and the push of digital transformation requirements means that the pace of change and adoption continues to ramp up.
In the IDC InfoBrief, IDC’s Cloud MaturityScape defines the stages, critical measures, business outcomes, and actions that are needed to effectively move through your cloud migration journey and derive the value in line with your organization’s cloud investments.
The IDC InfoBrief draws on IDC’s syndicated buyer surveys and studies, plus ongoing conversations with technology buyers and industry leaders to create APEJ-specific insights.
According to IDC’s Cloud MaturityScape, there are five stages of cloud maturity, from ad hoc through to optimized. Establishing which stage your organization is in, and where it aims to be, will help you determine the steps the organization needs to take that will enable it to realize the maximum business outcomes and benefits of cloud, all the while carefully navigating the challenges of each stage.
In addition, the IDC InfoBrief dives into the four dimensions of cloud maturity — vision, technology, people and process. This will allow you to gain further insight into your business’s current cloud reality and aid in planning what is needed to reach the next level.
From this launch pad, you are set to incorporate the IDC InfoBrief’s key considerations in the journey to the cloud, including dealing with shadow IT, the best tools and technologies to manage the cloud, the skills and roles you’ll need, as well as critical governance and policies that need to be developed.
Ultimately you want digital transformation to exceed expectations and truly create competitive advantages by using the cloud to create new business models to influence customers and markets.
