Developing a Cloud Adoption Strategy in Healthcare

cloud adoption

My last blog discusses how cloud is the leading platform for innovation and agility. In my last blog of this series, I examine how to develop a cloud adoption strategy and best practices.

Evolving and maturing people, processes, and technology are three elements of the organizational transformation that comes with cloud adoption.

Three steps to cloud journey:

  • Establish Strategy and Goals: Help engage senior members of IT and business leaders to understand all aspects of cloud and multiple options and approaches.
  • Conduct Portfolio Analysis: Map current- and future-state applications and prioritize their migration.
  • Plan and Execute: Migrate applications based on priority and sequence.

Cloud is an investment in efficiency and focus. It provides an opportunity to consider the IT ecosystem as a whole, and how it can be modernized. Retain, retire, refactor, replace, replatform, and rehost are multiple application modernization options commonly known as “Five Rs” or “Six Rs”. There is no silver bullet; a mix of approaches might be warranted depending on the situation, application, and types of costs involved.
