Every company is defining or updating its own cloud strategy, but most have only a partial view that is often focused solely on infrastructure. Cloud strategy should be based on business value in the short and medium term and on the strategic bets that can guarantee a longer-term viability of the investments. Providing the right mix requires adding customer approaches, data usage, business models evolution, talent retention and generation, ability to scale despite fast evolution of laws and regulations, and partnerships choices to the mix. Manuel Sevilla shares real-world examples to illustrate the rules you need to keep in mind when designing your own cloud strategy.
