So when it comes to a Cross-Cloud approach which helps all lines of business drive innovation and delivers on their goals, it’s no different. Sometimes those leading such an approach, and those within the business striving to get there need reminding what their ultimate goal is, and need to answer specific questions to ensure they’re on the right path. But rather than a post-it note or some rough notes, a visual guide can be more thought-provoking and has the added bonus of not getting lost amongst a pile of other work!
That’s why we’ve created an image which employees can keep close by and easily refer to, to ensure they’re taking the right steps on their Cross-Cloud journey. For example, if an employee is focusing on security in the cloud, they can refer to the second strand ‘How secure is your organisation’, and look at each of the steps to ensure they have secure cloud management in place. The steps include ensuring security is a business wide priority, and making sure that clouds are not treated as silos.
This is a simple but effective way of ensuring that your employees involved in your Cross-Cloud strategy stay on the right track and are asking the right questions– so share it with them now!
