2-hour briefing on TCS Cloud Journey (CAF) provides orientation on how TCS will work with the customer and deliver the cloud Journey.
The cloud is indeed a game- changer for most of the enterprises. Approaches to data and security practices need to be properly addressed during cloud planning in moving to cloud – the key is the mix of the change management and strategy. It is also essential to identify and avoid common mistakes and misconceptions to maximize the benefits of a cloud solution. Some of the critical factors in planning are effective business case, industry trends, selecting data for cloud, connecting the on-premises applications with cloud, change and training plan. Also, short-, medium- and long-term goals should be planned to leverage the benefits of cloud and integrate it with the current IT and business in proper order. In short, a Cloud adoption journey is more than choosing a technology, it requires planning for the future. It should be noted that the effort, and thus cost, of designing and implementing the cloud environment for the first migration project isn’t repeated in the second, third, and subsequent projects. Designing identity and security, network, and integrations efforts in the first project will pay future references..
