Cloud strategy

Take a holistic, structured approach to cloud services integration and increase agility and efficiency while reducing costs.

Get your head out of the clouds and into cloud services. New operating models demand innovation for cost reduction, greater agility and increased efficiencies. As cloud services mature, service providers develop new security, risk and compliance software, helping to streamline cyber security processes and encourage companies to invest.

And it’s working. By 2021, worldwide spending for cloud services is expected to reach $277 billion.1

Begin your cloud journey

To gain a competitive advantage through the cloud, IT needs to align its cloud strategy with the key business objectives. Cloud computing offers Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) products, which can develop and test new technologies, store and manage data off-premises and optimize business functions. However, implementing cloud technologies across the organization requires a holistic and structured approach, underpinned by robust planning, due diligence on tools and vendors, and a detailed roadmap.

KPMG can help IT organizations accelerate and enhance their cloud journey by establishing a strategy that first accesses your company’s current portfolio of applications. Then we’ll help you decide to upgrade or move-to-cloud, where to implement integration, and what governance framework balances the business needs with agile development. 

Our experience developing and deploying cloud migration, transformation and risk management can help your company define and implement an effective enterprise cloud strategy that reaps the benefits and migrates the risks of cloud technologies.
