Here, UKCloud explains how businesses can take advantage of Data Centre Modernisation, whilst still focusing on their core business and avoiding key pitfalls of digital transformation

So, you’ve decided you’d like to reap the benefits of Data Centre Modernisation; reducing costs, increasing your operational agility and spending more time focusing on your core business. But you may be left wondering what you need to do, what approaches you can take and some of the key pitfalls to avoid.

You have realised that your organisation needs to adopt multiple cloud services – but that’s a long way from where you are today. You are facing a myriad of existing systems, technologies and contracts that you need to disentangle. But you don’t have the capacity or expertise to properly focus on turning your vision into an executable plan.

Without a coherent plan, your use of cloud is tactical and piecemeal. It’s difficult to keep control of these new cloud services whilst also keeping your existing IT afloat. In effect, things are getting worse – and you need them to get better.

4 Key Steps to Cloud: High-level

Recognising these challenges, we have identified four keys steps that can simplify, de-risk and accelerate your journey to cloud as outlined below in Figure 1:
