What is the Cloud Adoption Strategy Evaluator
The Cloud Adoption Strategy Evaluator is an online assessment that takes about 10 minutes to complete. It asks you a series of questions about your motivations, business outcomes, financial and technical considerations for cloud adoption. Based on your answers, it gives you a score that reflects your overall strategy posture across these areas.
The score is not a measure of success or failure, but rather a way to identify your strengths and weaknesses in your cloud strategy. The tool also provides you with curated and relevant resources from the Cloud Adoption Framework for Azure, a proven methodology that can help you align your cloud adoption efforts with your business goals and best practices.
By taking the Cloud Adoption Strategy Evaluator, you can:
- Gain clarity on your cloud adoption objectives and drivers
- Understand the key elements of a robust business case for cloud adoption
- Learn how to evaluate the financial and technical implications of moving to the cloud
- Discover how to leverage the Cloud Adoption Framework for Azure to accelerate your cloud journey
