The Cloud is one of the biggest trends occurring on the IT landscape – and it is accompanied by tremendous opportunities and challenges. As companies move their applications to the Cloud they encounter politics around pooling and sharing of resources; fear of giving up control and software licensing challenges. But as expertise grows, best practices are emerging for a formulated approach to the Cloud. Key steps include planning, design, delivery, assurance, delivery and optimization.
In this video CA Technology’s vice president of strategic solutions, Andi Mann, discusses the challenges organizations are facing as they migrate to the Cloud, and the best practices that are prerequisite to success. Critical in all of this is software licensing, and the need for understanding what licensing flexibility is required to enable safe, secure and compliant Cloud migrations.
