How to optimize the potential of the cloud by addressing its various dimensions and without becoming disillusioned?

anida cloud management 01

There is always a lot of talk about the advantages of migrating to a cloud environment, but the truth is that many organizations may face disappointment when they do not get the expected benefits.
Adopting a cloud computing and services model does not necessarily result in cost reductions, and there may even be some increases in the IT area, as well as the organization may not be able to visualize other benefits that were among their expectations, as this depends largely on the IT management capabilities needed to achieve these advantages.
Although the market believes that cloud is meeting strategic and service expectations, there are some concerns and there are key dimensions or edges in which, in the opinion of Fernando Carrillo, Cloud Leader at Anida Latam, the support of an expert is undoubtedly required. These are: Adoption, Governance, Security and Economics.

Welcome to the cloud, beginning the journey (Adoption)

Simply put, the cloud consists of two main points: software and services that reside and operate on the Internet rather than on a local computer or on-premises server network.

"Cloud adoption is a strategy used by companies to improve the scalability of Internet-based database capabilities while reducing costs and risks," details the professional.

In this regard, the benefits of this strategy, in his view, include the ability to store privileged data in the private cloud while leveraging the technology resources of the public cloud to run applications that rely on private data."

Efficient management (Governance)

Cloud governance is a set of rules and policies adopted by companies running cloud services. "The goal of cloud governance is to improve data security, manage risk and enable the smooth operation of cloud systems," the executive explains.

Cloud governance ensures that asset deployment, system integration, data security and other aspects of cloud computing are properly planned, considered and managed. It is very dynamic, because cloud systems can be created and maintained by different groups in the organization, involve external vendors, and can change on a daily basis.

It is necessary to feel secure (Security)

Cloud security refers to the technologies, policies, controls and services that protect data, applications and cloud infrastructure from threats.

Because the public cloud has no clear perimeters, it presents a fundamentally different security reality. "This becomes even more challenging when adopting modern cloud approaches, such as automated continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) methods, distributed serverless architectures and ephemeral assets such as functions-as-a-service and containers," adds Fernando Carrillo.

Controlling costs (Economics)

Cloud economics is the study of the costs and benefits of cloud computing and the economic principles behind them. As a discipline, it explores key questions for enterprises: What is the return on investment (ROI) of migrating to the cloud or switching from a current cloud provider? And what is the total cost of ownership (TCO) of a cloud solution versus a traditional on-premises solution?

"When individual companies understand the economics of cloud computing, they can optimize their investments and get the most value for their organization," he adds.

"At Anida Latam we address the different stages and complexities of the path to the cloud for organizations, through a complete portfolio of Managed Services that allow us to respond to their main cloud concerns and address the different dimensions of cloud management with the appropriate services," says the specialist, detailing how the company addresses the needs of its customers and their cloud environments:

  • If you have high expectations, and then are disappointed, you need help on the journey to the cloud through Cloud Adoption's service.
  • Do you feel that you are not being efficient, you need management support with Cloud Governance.
  • If you feel that your organization's data, applications or services are no more secure than in a data center, you need help with Cloud Security.
  • If your first invoice was higher than you expected, get support with Cloud Economics.
