Each hyperscale public cloud service provider will have to anticipate customers at various stages of a journey from status quo to one cloud or the eventuality of mutlicloud
. So, having a business value engineering framework in place will ensure the following:
- Key business initiatives prioritization
- Key stakeholders in a living RACI matrix
Structured Decision-making frameworks applied (Facts, Alternatives, Commitments, etc.)
- Predictions are possible because data, telemetry, and instrumentation enable the proper well-architected framework underpinned with the right technology at the right time
- Continuous improvement drives this back to step 1 again and again.
To state this another way, let’s loosely paraphrase Dean of Big Data Bill Schmarzo
on the essential nature of step 4 and the WHILE
The hyperscale cloud service provider must help customers achieve their initiatives WHILE they are conducting their present operational reality.
Ultimately, partnering with customers in business performance improvement terms is the only way hyperscale public cloud service providers will have an enduring competitive advantage. As such, each hyperscale public cloud service provider will need to make strategic investments that help the customer uncover the highest value opportunities to leverage the proper well-architected framework that is underpinned with the right technology – and at the right time.
