While people are generally excited about new technological advances, they are usually less excited about the planning that goes along with using the technology. The cloud is no exception.

It is important that you take a look at the technologies that you are currently using and identify inefficiencies in order of priority and plan how to address these needs in the cloud. You want to start your move with a plan that outlines the projects, their associated costs and resource needs.

Things to consider include:
• Applications
• Data
• Services
• Storage

Will these planning considerations help you fully leverage the cloud’s capabilities and this is ripe? Or is this hype?
