COVID-19 made effective remote collaboration a mission-critical priority—and the cloud is a foundational element for a virtual work environment. To be cloud smart is to apply cloud technology to solve both technical and business challenges in a deliberate and sustainable way. Critical to that outcome is ensuring that business and tech leaders have aligned priorities and understand the far-reaching implications of a fundamentally changed operating model.
Priya Emmanuel, Managing Director of KPMG’s CIO Advisory practice, explains why many organizations have yet to realize large-scale cloud adoption, where implementation stalls commonly occur, and how to overcome those hurdles to become cloud smart.
Topics discussed include:
- why cloud-based architecture better enables sensitive data to be accessed, managed, and analyzed
- specific ways in which roles and talent requirements change in a hybrid-cloud environment
- the three critical steps that drive a cloud-based transformation.
