CIO’s top agenda items

Working with numerous CIO’s and technology leaders we’ve found that their top agenda items tend to fall into three major areas

Security

No organisation wants to be in the news for a data breach or cyber attack. Among all of a CIO’s challenges, this has the potential to majorly harm a business, perhaps even with legal implications.

Uptime

Your infrastructure is only as good as you make it. Migrating to a new platform with a lift ‘n’ shift approach will undoubtedly restrict you from the fast and agile landscape you planned for. When processes stay the same as your previous platform set up, the potential for downtime will become higher. This means your IT team will continue to firefight. CIO’s ultimately face an increase in mistrust and frustration from customers, as services begin to fail.

Cost

While security and uptime are two main drivers, the cost is still a significant factor in most enterprises, sometimes running into billions of dollars. Many CIO’s face a common challenge of “Doing more with less”. They also look to embrace new capabilities, while simultaneously reducing operational expenses.

Transforming your cloud migration into a success

When used effectively, the cloud brings great benefits. By transforming processes to suit a newly implemented cloud platform, whether it is Microsoft Azure or AWS, CIO’s and IT teams benefit from a quick and agile landscape. Costs are reduced, as platform fire fighting turns to a proactive outlook and drives the ability to plan, rather than constantly manage. A proven successful style of working to harness this culture is by implementing a DevOps approach. DevOps allows teams to work cross-functionally with other teams, developing automated processes across infrastructure for agility.
