This week we’re rolling out our final think piece which focuses on the habits and practices of those farthest ahead on the path to value—Trailblazers, as we call them. Trailblazers, who make up 14% of our survey respondents, have significantly higher profit margins and revenues than the rest of the respondents.
Trailblazers have a strategic, forward-thinking approach when it comes to cloud migration. They are significantly more likely to have a migration plan in place (58% vs. 26% of the total), and they leave decision making to a centralized group or committee at the regional or local level. They’re also far more concerned about data security in the cloud; to that end, they are significantly more likely to have SLAs in place and conduct internal audits of cloud services.
The path to value can be a tricky one, but following in the footsteps of Trailblazers is a good starting point for cloud migrations. Click here for the Trailblazer think piece.
