Undoubtedly, cloud computing is the fuel that drives the digital transformation engine. Despite several cloud-native tools and services at their disposal, most CIOs are still sceptical of their path to cloud transformation. Cloud providers like AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, and Salesforce are innovating rapidly in their bid to make the transition a smooth and attractive proposition. Organizations are at varying degrees of maturity regarding cloud adoption, which is a function of three pillars: cloud prioritization, cloud architecture, and cloud operating model. A complete migration is anything but simple and comes with its own set of barriers and risks. Many still see the cloud as less reliable, less secure, and more expensive.
