Enterprises operating in every corner of the globe are seeking to best leverage emerging cloud services and determine the delivery model that aligns with their business goals. The promised value — dramatically lower cost, unrivaled flexibility, constant innovation — can be elusive if efforts to capture it do not take the right first steps.
New and unfamiliar challenges arise when analyzing cloud economics:
- A very different set of resources and operating expenses is involved
- Public cloud pricing is menu-driven, making it difficult to assess the full cost of implementation
- Various economic drivers are linked to various application workload
- Cloud economics for the enterprise level isn’t widely available or tested
