Cloud Adoption Dilemma: How to Balance Risks and Rewards?

Clouded Videos 6 of 7

Welcome to the Clouded Activity video series from Centerprise International. In these videos, our experts explore various aspects of cloud adoption in the public sector, including challenges, benefits, and potential drawbacks.

In the ever-evolving landscape of technology, the cloud has emerged as a game-changer, offering organisations unprecedented access to innovation and efficiency. For public sector customers, the allure of cloud adoption is undeniable, but concerns about potential pitfalls loom large.

Centerprise International CEO, Jeremy Nash, engages in a thought-provoking conversation with Jon Elliott, the Director for Government, to uncover valuable insights on how to navigate the cloud journey with purpose and caution.

Be cautious of the toxic commercial models

Jon Elliott emphasises the importance of self-discipline when it comes to cloud adoption, ensuring that toxic commercial models aren’t embraced and that there’s a clear strategy in place:

“Toxic models are designed to pull us deeper and deeper into a particular ecosystem, often at the cost of a true collaboration. We must make sure that we have a clear strategy and that we deeply root the why. As soon as we forget why we’ve chosen a specific direction of travel, we become a passenger rather than the conductor.”

Our experts dispel the notion that cloud adoption should be an “all or nothing” decision. It’s crucial to strike a balance that aligns with an organisation’s specific needs and objectives. By deeply rooting the “why” behind their decisions, public sector organisations can leverage the cloud’s vast possibilities while retaining control over their destiny, ensuring a bright and innovative future for all.
