How Do You Successfully Navigate Your Cloud Journey?

Today, most organizations are creating a robust strategy for moving toward the cloud. But is that easier said than done? Well, no. When building a cloud migration strategy, business leaders must consider the significant changes it can bring to their business model and operations. So, how do you reap the benefits of cloud migration? Experts believe it is all about creating a strategy tailored to your business. In this interview at, Dish CIO Atilla Tinic discusses how to embark on the cloud journey, the importance of having a cloud mindset, staffing challenges, and the lessons he learned.

Can Cloud Computing Drive Innovation?

Today, many software vendors are modernizing their platforms so they can be cloud native. “We can typically do rapid assessments or spin up a sandbox environment to evaluate capabilities. So, it puts us in a position where we can try it before we buy it, learn about the platforms, and kind of see what makes sense for us,” says Tinic. He also suggests companies embarking on the cloud journey must have an open ecosystem that helps them easily replace components as technology evolves.

Adopting a Cloud Mindset for a Successful Cloud Journey

Making the transition to the cloud is challenging. Therefore, a significant culture change must start at the top. Technology leaders must be responsible for a successful cloud journey. However, even seasoned tech leaders may face new obstacles when migrating to the cloud. Therefore, leaders must possess the knowledge and ‘instinct’ to deliver business-critical solutions and systems, even with new requirements.

Cloud Journey: Lessons to Learn

Here is some hindsight Tinic shares while implementing cloud computing:

  • When establishing direct connections to the cloud, networking teams must intensely work on the architecture. In other words, enterprises must never underestimate networking.
  • Tech leaders must protect their cloud setup by establishing standardized security processes, such as the right access permissions and firewalls.
  • IT leaders must encourage strong, centralized oversight to avoid cost overruns.
