If used to its full potential, cloud computing goes further than cost cutting benefits and can be a powerful tool for business innovation and transformation.

In order to take advantage of all features the cloud has to offer, businesses need to adjust, and that means traditional models need to make space for new and innovative approaches.

Adjusting Organizational Structures

One of the areas of business that will have to undergo adjustment is organizational structure. In order to innovate with cloud computing, companies need to adopt cloud-centred operating and organizational models. How can you do that? Start by asking (and answering) these 3 questions:

1. How can I marry traditional organizational structures and the new, agile technology?

Traditionally, company structures are passed down over time. Whilst these forms of organization hold valuable institutional knowledge. But they are slow and unable to respond to the constantly changing environments of modern businesses. Instead, a more agile organizational model that follows the spirit of entrepreneurship in its approach and focus on quickness, adaptation and learning from failure is needed to take full advantage of all the cloud has to offer.

2. Do you and your team need to develop any new roles or skills, and what are they?

The right talent is the crucial factor that can make or break cloud-based innovation. Often these type of people want to work in agile, innovative organisations, so the answer to question 1 will be the prerequisite for question 2.

However, keep two things in mind: you need to make sure that you manage your ‘old’ and ‘new’ workforce effectively, helping them to converge seamlessly.

3. What tools do I need to become an agile business?
