Check the right priorities off your list

IT leaders: Is digital transformation a priority for you this year? Does the pressure of balancing innovation and day-to-day operations keep you up at night? Are outdated systems preventing you from advancing your agenda?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, chances are you are seeking guidance as you make decisions that will impact how your business operates well into the future. And when it comes to cloud, there are many factors affecting how to keep things running smoothly.

Migrating applications, workloads, and infrastructure to the cloud brings digital transformation strategies to life. And while IT leaders build their case for making the move, they must evaluate what to move first – and how to make it happen. Meanwhile, they must provide rationale for new technology investments.

What sets the modern CIO up for success as they carve out their path to digital transformation? Our checklist can point you in the right direction:



Finding the most effective ways to bring SaaS platforms to the enterprise can help IT leaders deliver on the promise of cloud, paying dividends as users begin to see the value of the investment over time. And, with UCaaS in particular, employees across the business will be able to see firsthand how IT can improve their day-to-day reality – making work work for them with more flexible options to communicate. And, adoption is a litmus test for meaningful change: when employees understand the advantages of a new application, then an investment in technology is an investment in your people. And that’s something the modern CIO can truly get behind. If being a cloud champion means being a champion of UX, everyone wins.
