The Unavoidable Disclaimer

The Missing Cloud Programme Roadmap is just that — a roadmap! It sets the direction and provides guidance along the way. It’s deliberately kept at a high level in order to focus on the removal of common major obstacles. Also, no two companies are really ever the same.

As such, it requires a fair amount of adaption to a specific use case. Let alone the gathering of organisation specific data driving the execution of the roadmap. So, it’s not really “plug and play”. Yet. Sorry about that.

While there is plenty of room for errors built in, The Missing Cloud Programme Roadmap will not solve any existing organisational problems. Much to the contrary, it will just surface them quicker. But then getting to the cloud in any shape or form will. Actually, any programme or project will for that matter.

Let’s be honest: The Missing Cloud Programme Roadmap is neither foolproof nor a silver bullet! There are no guarantees of a successful cloud adoption. But if nothing else, then it seriously increases the chances of success.

In a world full of uncertainties, increasing the odds of success is sometimes the best you can hope for.
