No Application Left Behind
The Journey to the Cloud
Satya Addagarla, Anderson Tran, Mik Kersten, Rob Juncker, Betty Junod, and Sasha Rosenbaum
Enterprises have wide technology portfolios that include revenue generating applications built on old guard standard technology stacks (e.g., IBM, Oracle) to dabbling in modern technologies such as those provided by today’s hyperscalers. Enterprises are aware now, more than ever, that they will be hard pressed to remain idle in a world where digital product and services delivery are becoming the new, main revenue streams in their respective industries.
In this paper we break down the case for change as we show that this vast portfolio of applications need not have any applications left behind as we guide you on how to begin your journey of transformation. Through a few major topic areas, from the executive pitch to business metrics and what an execution plan example looks like, we hope to advise the technical executive reader on key points and pivots an organization can make as it navigates change with a complex set of technology to maintain.
