Moving to the Cloud #NoDev #NoOps and #NoIT

Paper by Adrian Hollister, Digital Transformation Specialist, August 2015

By now it should be clear that buying IT the old way has long gone:

tin + software + installation + maintenance + staff + training + management + support tools = expensive + slow + poor value

Cloud computing has been with us for some time, but it’s the everything as-a-service (XaaS) element of Cloud computing that is so compelling. Removing the need for expensive and all-consuming IT departments, thinning them down to an intelligent customer layer.

services + intelligent IT teams = agile + good value + business focused

So what does this mean in practice?

This paper has been divided into a number of parts that aim to create a easily digestible overview of an ‘Cloud First’ model.

Part 1 – Impact on the IT organisation

Part 2 – How to manage change

Part 3 – Moving from legacy support to supplier management

Part 4 – Being an intelligent customer
