At the recent Discover London, Hiram Perez (@hiramfperez1), Director, Customer Success Management, HPE and Christoph Herrnkind, CEO, myLoc presented a highly informative session for customers planning their cloud journey.

In this session, Hiram presented a step by step process for a cloud journey followed by a detailed example of myLoc’s process and the key 10 learnings they took away from the journey.

Best Practices

  1. Comprehensive Cloud Transformation Plan – Focus on more than the infrastructure
  2. Treat your Operation as a Business – IT is now more than a service in the enterprise
  3. Share Compelling Case for Transformation – Not short term process & share across the entire business
  4. Comprehensive Cloud Transformation Team – Team must be cross-company not just IT
  5. Effectively Manage the Stakeholders – Make sure multiple voices in the process not just IT
  6. Communicate Effectively and Purposely – Regular meetings w/ stakeholders; keep everyone aware of status
  7. Establish a Baseline on the Technology – Identify the services needed then technology to solve it
  8. Define how to Measure Success – Know your goals for effective success measurements
  9. Use a Phased Approach – Implement in stages to ensure customer success at each stage
  10. Manage Perceptions & Expectations – Deliver what your customer needs
