The benefits that cloud computing bestows upon businesses are numerous.
The Benefits Include:
Enterprise-Wide CollaborationsHigher Employee Productivity Shorter development cycles Lower Costs Better Analytics.
Businesses are adopting cloud computing due to advancements in cloud technology and infrastructure.
But there are lot of risks involved in maintaining an efficient cloud infrastructure.
Implementing cloud services for the first time can be quite cumbersome and may involve a lot of mistakes.
Here are 6 Common Cloud Planning Mistakes:1. Implementation Without Objectives
Mismatch between service provider capabilities and business requirement can lead to a lot of hassles.
The implementation plan must include execution methodology that must be in line with your business goals.
2. Poor Requirement Analysis
The type of services that can be delivered will be largely dependent upon the available bandwidth.
Cloud implementation will be hampered if there is high latency and the application performance is sluggish.
3. Hiring the Wrong Team
A team with the requisite experience and skill set to implement cloud services must be hired.
Team members must get along well and most importantly complement each others work.
4. False Assumption of Data Security
Cloud hacking and internet piracy has ensured that no business enterprise takes security lightly.
Even if cloud vendor is PCI DSS compliant, it does not guarantee PCI compliance for you.
Cloud security must be ensured by using a 256-bit encryption that is further safeguarded by proper key management.
5. Underestimating the Complexity ofCloud Implementation
For successful cloud implementation, a realistic expectation is integral irrespective of your team or cloud vendor.
Technology plays an important role and the old should be reconfigured with the new where necessary.
6. Poor Communication System
Poor enterprise-wide communication is another error that is encountered when planning cloud implementation for the first time.
The communication must clearly put forward business goals, user expectation, expected outcomes, Return on Investment (ROI) and implementation methodology.
Each potential problem must be anticipated and planning must be carried out around such issues which will be beneficial in the future.
