Measure Twice, Cut Once
If you’re like me, you’ve ignored this sage advice a time or so. Thankfully my most recent rush to a solution was remedied by a trip back to the home improvement store and $100 or so. Most IT “goofs” extract a much dearer cost. In this third installment of Cisco Insights – Cloud, Bob Dimicco profiles a non-profit company who successfully resisted the pressure to jump straight on the Cloud project bandwagon. Instead they opted for a thoughtful, measured approach. Partnering with Cisco, they first conduced a thorough strategy and business justification assessment. By focusing on their key business drivers and desired outcomes, they were able to get a complete picture of benefits, costs, and a deep understanding of where the true ROI would be. They allowed the facts, not the hype or pressure to guide their direction. Watch the video find out where they went next on their journey to cloud.
