Professional Support that Unlocks the Full Benefits of Google Cloud
The Cloud is Here But Not Fully Utilized
Last year witnessed an accelerated adoption of cloud in all economic sectors as organizations scrambled to support remote workers and distance learning. About 88% of enterprises now use the cloud and most of them expect to grow their usage over the next year. (1) But despite the high rate of adoption, workload migration is a different story. Only 45% of enterprises plan to migrate 75% or more of their apps to the cloud in one year, and 55% of companies plan to move less than 50% of their apps.2 So, why the higher adoption but much lower workload deployment?
Challenges of Enterprise Workloads
Businesses in most sectors of the economy use monolithic applications running on legacy infrastructure. Migrating or modernizing such applications require technical skills to turn apps into cloud compatible ones. It also requires management support and financial resources.
- Shortage of cloud technical skills. IT professionals are used to upgrading their skills to adapt to keep up with new technologies. The demand for cloud skills outstrips supply, making it harder for most businesses to staff their teams.
- New emerging cloud skills. As remote work burst onto the scene accompanied with low supply of PCs, companies added thousands of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solutions. The new VMs require protection, better IT visibility, and enhanced management tools. The new skills required to manage all of this are also in short supply.
- Lack of cloud-native developers. The main advantage of cloud adoption is the ability to modernize IT and apps. Adopting a DevOps culture is a hard sell to siloed teams and senior management. Faster time to release containerizing apps and run them on Kubernetes remains out of reach for many enterprises.
- Absence of large projects and process management. Migrating enterprise applications is not for the faint of heart, as the process can be difficult. It is advantageous for customers to partner with an experienced provider that can access projects, propose solutions, execute the transformation, and manage the cloud footprint.
