Introduction

Dear Reader,
Migrating to AWS can have a transformative impact to your business – when you dedicate resources to leverage cloud and adopt cloud practices, Cloud can reposition the role that IT plays within your organisation, moving from a service to an innovator.

Devoteam x IDC’s 2021 cloud benchmark survey clearly shows that cloud innovators, businesses that are driving digital business transformation based on Cloud, are more likely to drive business outcomes from their cloud strategy than their less experienced peers. Those cloud innovators that, achieved positive business outcomes were able to:
• Increase business and IT productivity
• Lower the cost of IT
• Improve their governance, security, and compliance posture
And importantly, we are seeing Cloud as a valuable Green IT lever for energy and resource efficiency. But moving to the cloud can be a challenge, whether it is difficulties in migrating legacy applications, the complexity of cloud migrations or a shortage of skills in the market.
