    REPORT: Cloud Powers The New Connected Economy

    Vision: The Cloud Computing Playbook

    October 4, 2017 Liz Herbert, Dave Bartoletti

    Cloud is no longer a tactical solution but rather a strategic enabler of connected economies. Technology leaders will orchestrate cloud ecosystems that connect employees, customers, partners, vendors, and devices to serve rising customer expectations. Firms will shift from being mere cloud adopters to becoming cloud companies themselves — stewards of their own ecosystems. This report highlights the transformation taking place as we move to a world of connected cloud ecosystems and describes how this evolution should change infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals' thinking about cloud. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and revises it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy. We're now updating it to reflect new research on cloud economies.

Customer-obsessed companies also focus on the people and process changes required to keep customers and employees informed and engaged throughout an outage. Amazon Web Services' recent Simple Storage Service outage disrupted services at Atlassian, a collaboration software company; however, Atlassian used its own ChatOps tools to recover quickly while minimizing customer impact.
