VMware: Building a Bridge Across Clouds

If there is one beacon pointing to the future of enterprise technology, it is the cloud. And while many companies have already at least begun their cloud journey, there are still many questions around how best to navigate the journey safely, efficiently, and successfully. According to VMware and Dell Technologies CIO Bask Iyer, a short list of the most important of these considerations includes having the right people, the right vendor partners, and the right culture to ensure a safe, efficient, and successful adoption and integration of cloud solutions.

Start With the Right People

For Iyer, planning a successful transition to the cloud begins with having the right people. This may initially seem counter-intuitive because the cloud, by its very definition, is all about automation. Many legacy data center operations involve a number of manual processes; the automation of these processes is what differentiates modern data center and cloud management and operation.

As a consequence, having the right people in place is critical to the cloud integration planning process. A smooth and efficient workload migration is dependent upon IT staff who are open to the transformation in their own roles and responsibilities that a cloud-based model naturally entails. Ideally, says Iyer, they should be people who “are ready to learn and try new things—and to try them differently. Cloud offers a growth and learning opportunity for all, including CIOs like me.”
