Cloud Automation: The No 1 factor to consider for a successful cloud business
What is cloud automation and why should you care? Well delivering all the latest cloud technologies to your end customers it’s not enough, it never was! Every cloud service provider is aware of that. Deliver them automatically however is another discussion.
Technology vendors nowadays, release new applications and services daily and staying up to speed with their delivery is by far the most controversial factor to consider as a cloud service provider.
Fine so far, you would say, I will struggle to deliver them but I plan to do it as I always do! It worked so far, didn’t it? Well, the answer is not as simple as you may think! That “always” usually includes, most-if not all-of your sales executives and numerous people from your accounting department, to be occupied with the handling of your customers’ everyday requests and subscriptions, when they could just look after the business development of your firm. Just consider how profitable your organization would be if you had adopted a cloud automation platform and your sales department would pursue prospective onboarding customers, instead of constantly handling the existing ones?
The most critical factor to consider when you want to undergo a change like that, is the investment’s cost! By cost however, we don’t only refer to the money you would spend, but to how much your organization would have to go back to its commercial revenue targets and what kind of organizational restructure it may need to be done. Well embracing the evolution is the antidote of fearing it. Explore all the possible solutions and reevaluate your targets! Every industry leader took the necessary “risks” in order to evolve and dominate the market why not you as well?
So, let’s say that you have already set the infrastructure required for your cloud delivery what should you do next to embrace cloud automation? Well, let’s have an elaborate look on what your cloud platform should incorporate first:
