Forrester Report - Best Practices: Cloud Governance

Executive Summary

It’s no surprise that more and more companies are moving to the cloud. In fact, experts say that 83% of enterprise workloads will be in the cloud by end of 2020. Naturally a move like this comes with concerns over security, cost, onboarding, tools and more. But the most difficult question is how to govern the process to avoid surprises. Forrester defines cloud governance as “the ability to provide strategic direction, track performance, allocate resources, and modify services to ensure meeting organizational objectives without breaching the parameters of risk tolerance or compliance obligations.”

Cloud governance is mandatory for a successful transition, and without it both the move and future use of cloud software is jeopardized. This report gives infrastructure and operations (I&O) and security and risk (S&R) professionals a blueprint and best practices for cloud governance, accounting for stakeholders, workload targets, processes, and tools.
