It can be tempting to pitch the cloud as a panacea for all enterprise technology needs, serving up both functionality and flexibility with comparatively low risk. Indeed, there is much to justify the rapid shift of cloud platforms to centre stage in recent years.
And yet IT leaders also know that any technology ideal must accommodate real-world practicalities. Integration with legacy applications, complexity of licensing models, compliance with regulatory requirements and the prospect of technical debt are all factors that influence any cloud-based transition. Whatever the potential benefits, organizations must consider existing systems, architectures and frameworks, and how any change will answer evolving business requirements.
