48 Hours To Better Manage Cloud For Your Business - Part 2

Welcome to our 2nd blog post within our six part series on "48 Hours To Better Manage Cloud For Your Business" from!

We will outline an approach for Business leaders to follow so that they can better leverage cloud computing and maximize their investment.

The series of blog posts will discuss the following topics:

Part 1 - Questions business owners should be asking.

Part 2 - The importance of People, Process and Tools.

Part 3 - 9 Common Pitfalls to Avoid With Cloud Computing.

Part 4 - Pizza As A Service Cloud Analogy.

Part 5 - When is Cloud Computing Not A Fit For Your Business?

Part 6 - What is a Cloud Architect?

In this post we will discuss the importance of People, Process and Tools to aid you in cloud journey.  When business owners hear of cloud they can often jump to the conclusion that cloud is all about technology - well that's not completely true.  We have stated in the past that cloud is a new business model and that Business owners should think about how their people (staff) and current business operations will be changed by the introduction of cloud computing.

The relationship between People, Process and Tools gives us more to consider than just a tool - it's not just the tool (the technology), but it is the process of implementing it, and the people involved.

You will have to think about the People and the new job opportunities that can exist, in comparison to the job tasks that may be reduced.  One example, is around the need for a Cloud Architect role to be bridge between the traditional IT and your business operations.  Your staff that are involved with managing the purchase of IT or services will need to create a new model in order to properly leverage cloud as a commodity.

When your Business starts to utilize more cloud services then you will have to start planning for how the disparate cloud services can be connected together so that your Business does not lose its ability to gain more insight into operations.  Cloud integration is another aspect of how your Processes can change as your Business develops its cloud exit strategy and enforces the need for data standardization to avoid vendor lock-in.

These are just a few examples of how the People, Process and Tools are impacted by move toward cloud computing.
