The Operational and Governance Challenges on the Jourey to Azure by Kyle Krüsi

The Operational and Governance Challenges on the Jourey to Azure by Kyle Krüsi

Moving to the cloud leads to great benefits for an organization, but can have a big impact, too. Organizations are facing major challenges if operations and governance issues are neglected in their cloud adoption planning.

In this session, I will shed light on the challenges that organizations are facing on their way to the Azure cloud and how the risks can be mitigated. Additionally, I will present some takeaways from customers who have already successfully completed their cloud adoption process.

Speaker: Kyle Krüsi

Kyle is an Operation Consultant for Microsoft. He consults and supports different sized enterprise customers in the whole EMEA region on their journey to the Azure cloud.

  17. Impact current ITSM processes Separation of dependencies Shift of Responsibilities

    & Accountabilities New roles & skills sets Cloud People Process
  18. You must consider PaaS, versus lift and shift. PaaS provide

    reduced complexity, management and cost. Business cases need to consider rationalizing VM hosting costs (PaaS is cheaper then IaaS). Include licensing, (extended) support, compliance and time to market. Setup a migration factory to smoothly transition Services to new PaaS platforms.
  19. Subscriptions drive access to the management of resources, applications, security,

    network, configuration management, chargeback and showback Master subscriptions management for Azure, before shifting Services to Azure. You need to have a subscription strategy and operating plan to consume Azure at large scale. Define your outcomes first.
  20. Think big, start small Clouds demand maturity. Organizations must increase

    their maturity in order to deliver the promised value Shift to the Cloud with start with a small, reliable service. Gain maturity in small steps, an think bimodal IT. Leave traditional practices on premise, treat cloud as Greenfield
  21. Shift responsibilities for cloud Cloud removes organizational silos, for example,

    Fabric Management requires cross domain expertise versus deep silo expertise Using cloud principles and (IaaS / PaaS / SaaS) IT must shift their responsibilities to fit into Cloud architecture and services (SharePoint, fabric, platform, etc.)
  22. Processes, roles and responsibilities will change depending what type of

    service you delivering in the Cloud (waterline). Understand the cloud model you will deliver (IaaS / PaaS / SaaS). Align your service delivery and cloud processes into the NEW cloud organization.
  23. Cloud Service Consumers are focused on the delivery of services

    (think containers) and IT fails when trying to manage components in the cloud Focus on Services when using the Cloud, make sure that you monitor Service delivery and manage Services from the Consumer point of view
  24. ▪ Define standard changes ▪ Tiered SLAs disappear, SLAs are

    set by the Cloud provider ▪ Service Catalog maturity ▪ Automation, efficiency (IT will be bypassed) ▪ Culture needs to shift, Cloud is a disrupter ▪ Processes need to be lean and mean
