How to Operate a Digitally Advanced Enterprise in 2023

In today’s digital world, cloud is the indisputable foundation of a resilient, competitive, and green enterprise. But though cloud acceleration is likely to continue, many enterprises fail to realize the full benefits of cloud due to inadequate skills, evolving leadership requirements, and difficulty controlling costs while driving digital initiatives.

Becoming a digital enterprise requires a transformational mindset, and success depends on the ability of cloud-enabled enterprises to:

Control and optimize cloud costs to relieve pressure on the bottom line.

Acquire IT leadership
competencies that go beyond technology to drive the enterprisewide digital journey.

Strategically address the cloud skills gap across IT and business functions.

Anticipate IT needs beyond the cloud to support continuous innovation.
