#4: Your organization is ready to flex.
The more you bend, the less you break. Your organization must be prepared to undergo changes in the way it works—not just after the migration has been completed, but during the entire process. People in the organization play a big role in successful public cloud adoption. In fact, the Amazon Web Services Cloud Adoption Framework states, “With appropriate planning, monitoring, and management, changes that affect people can accelerate the value realization expected from cloud adoption.”
Feldman notes, “The process of bringing organizations workloads into the cloud is most importantly about the people and their processes. It is essential to frame the transformation in a manner which allows stakeholders from executives to engineers to understand the benefits of the what, how, and wow it brings to them and their customers.”
The shapeshifting doesn’t just happen in the backend, so the organization should be flexible enough to accommodate role and process changes brought about by the transformation of the IT structure.
