In our last blog post, we described how relying exclusively on straightforward financial considerations such as return on investment (ROI) and total cost of ownership (TCO) to decide when to transition to cloud computing can be risky. But if these traditional criteria are no longer enough, what can business leaders do?
The answer is to calculate the impact of cloud migration on the business as a whole. As a paradigm shift, cloud computing can have a positive impact on revenue, security, productivity, market share, and profitability. When companies consider the full breadth of advantages, the true value of digital transformation via the cloud becomes clear as does the opportunity cost of postponement.
