Define your cloud transformation strategy

Welcome back to our Cloud Transformation blog series! In my earlier post, I discussed briefly about the main challenges faced by operators globally embarking on their Cloud Transformation journeys. To best avoid the common pitfalls, I recommended that operators go through a series of assessment and planning programs, in parallel to the technology pilots being carried out in their networks. In this post, I'll address the first stumbling block to “Failure to drive change beyond technology”.

The top three stumbling blocks for cloud transformation programs

Operators, globally, are rapidly embarking on their evolution towards being digital service providers. If you’re one of them, it’s high time to begin your own digital transformation so that you are positioned to help your customers achieve theirs. That means updating your services, network, infrastructure, and operations to become agile and accelerate innovation. The cloud, in all it fuzzy definitions, is an integral part of achieving the digital transformation. A successful Cloud Transformation will create the necessary foundation for the digital service provider of the future.
