HOLISTIC CLOUD BUSINESS CASE MODEL
A holistic approach to cloud business case looks past just cost reduction towards productivity gains and increased opportunities.
A typical cloud business case will need to demonstrate savings of IT costs and opportunities for revenue growth. During evaluation, consider the broader business objectives along with IT architectures, security, and operations—and financial implications. Your assessment should include the current and future state IT, total cost of ownership (TCO), hosting model, applications, and types of migration.
The transformation opportunity must be identified, as well as the benefits from innovation, new business models, and productivity. The evaluation must also include identification of opportunities for revenue uplift and target state earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT).
