There are colossal amounts of marketing messages directed at companies today that promote the benefits of taking your organization to the Cloud.
It’s likely you’ve been told that the ‘Cloud’ is the way businesses will run in the future and it will have a direct, positive impact on your top and bottom lines.
That said, there is a good chance you’ve started (either formally or informally) evaluating the cloud as an option for your organization.
You’re probably looking to understand enough to decide exactly where to start, how to prioritize, and how your current environment will be transformed.
The first step in understanding the Cloud at a high level is relatively simple.
You see words like ‘IaaS,’ ‘PaaS,’ ‘SaaS,’ ‘ioT,’ etc., for which you are not only able to find reasonably good definitions online, but also plenty of documents and tutorials that explain these concepts to you.
This is the easy part of navigating the cloud and most likely gives you the confidence to jump into the next level of evaluation.
At the next level, however, is where the slope often gets slippery and many find themselves overwhelmed by the plethora of options and platforms available.
Evaluating the Cloud - and more specifically the Oracle Cloud - becomes an arduous task to understand and determine the best fit for your organization.
You start sifting through terms like PaaS, SaaS, Fusion ERP, SCM Cloud, Sales Cloud, JCS, DBCS, EPM, HCM, ICS, Service Cloud, CX Cloud, Planning Central, Demand Management Cloud, SOA, and if we add into the mix non-Oracle platforms like SalesForce, Mulesoft, etc., it is absolutely overwhelming.
The landscape is undeniably complex. So how can you evaluate and navigate it all?
