A New Formula for a Successful Cloud Transformation

March 09, 2023 3 min Read

We’ve all made trade-offs to save time or money. We’re often forced to choose the best option regardless of sacrificing something at another’s expense. You may want something to be “good, fast, and cheap,” meaning something of high quality, quick and inexpensive. But this dynamic is impossible, so you sacrifice cost for something good and fast. Or you spare quality at the expense of something delivered quickly.

We’ve seen the same pattern in how businesses approach their cloud transformations. Whether it’s prioritizing speed over quality or feeling forced to go the lower-cost route, business and IT leaders are constantly having to “pick two” versus expecting to get everything good, fast, and cheap. Many are tempted to go for the faster or cheaper options—and experience immediate complexity or busted timelines. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Cloud emerged nearly two decades ago, but 2023 is when the impossible becomes possible. It takes a different approach to your cloud journey, starting with the understanding that it is just that – a journey, not a destination.

The next step is unshackling your organization from the “pick two” syndrome. To get amazing performance without increasing technical debt or sacrificing security, we need to change the equation to 1+1=3: the power of Azure PLUS Expedient.
