Cloud repatriation may be the next stop on the digital transformation journey.
If you were charting a digital transformation strategy five or 10 years ago, there is a very good chance that migrating to the cloud was at the heart of it. Today, however, the vast majority of businesses are already in the cloud--and it’s not always working out the way they intended. To continue along the digital transformation journey, forward-thinking organizations might want to consider cloud repatriation. By repatriating cloud workloads, organizations can address mistakes they made in earlier stages of digital transformation. Here’s why cloud repatriation should be a part of modern digital transformation.
Digital Transformation and the Cloud
Cloud computing and digital transformation tend to go hand-in-hand. For any business that is not already using the cloud, migrating to cloud environments is a dead-obvious way to advance digital transformation.
Today, though, most businesses have made the cloud jump, with 94% of enterprises now using a cloud service. Meanwhile, smaller businesses that didn’t traditionally need a full-scale public cloud environment are increasingly taking advantage of cloud-based solutions like desktop-as-a-service and cloud storage.
If you were to go and spout the virtues of the cloud as the basis for enabling digital transformation today, then, you’d sound out of touch. It would be like telling companies that they should start using computers.
