Nexon blog - Safeguarding Your Organisation Amidst Industry Transformations: What You Need to Know

In today’s rapidly evolving technology landscape, business leaders and organisations must remain vigilant and proactive in understanding industry transitions that could impact their operations. Recent events, such as the acquisition of VMware, serve as stark reminder of the need for heightened awareness and strategic planning when commercial offerings and models evolve. By staying informed and taking proactive measures, leaders can effectively manage the impact of these transitions, minimising unforeseen costs and infrastructure changes that could disrupt their operations.

What You Need to Know?

It’s essential to grasp the significance of these changes and understand why reviewing and optimising your Cloud environment is crucial for the future success of your organisation.

  • Understanding the Dynamics – Industry transitions can have profound implications for your organisation’s cloud strategy. While these transitions may seem distant from your day-to-day operations, they can directly affect the services, pricing models, and support structures that you rely on.
  • Assessing Your Cloud Environment – Against the backdrop of industry transitions, conducting a thorough review of your cloud environment becomes paramount. This assessment serves as a strategic exercise to:
    — Assess how well your current cloud setup aligns with your organisation’s goals and objectives. Are your resources optimised to support growth and innovation? What if any commercial impact will it have on your organisation?
    — Identify potential risks and vulnerabilities within your cloud infrastructure that may be exacerbated by industry changes. This includes security risks, compliance concerns, and dependencies on specific technologies or providers.
    — Look for opportunities to optimise the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of your Cloud environment.

Failing to continuously review and optimise your environment can leave you vulnerable to various challenges. Let’s delve into some common blind spots customers might encounter during industry transitions:

  • Technology Vendor Dynamics: Technology vendors play a pivotal role in shaping the infrastructure and operations of organisations. However, blindly relying on vendors without continuous review can lead to complacency and dependency. Vendors often optimise their technologies to scale operations rapidly, introducing updates, changes, and new features. While this can enhance efficiency and competitiveness, it may also lead to compatibility issues, unexpected costs, or reliance on outdated systems.
  • Unforeseen Budgetary Implications: A sudden increase in subscription costs, for instance, can significantly impact financial projections and resource allocation. Without proper contingency plans in place, such budget blowouts may force organisations to scale back projects, reallocate resources, or compromise on quality. Imagine the impact of realising mid-year that your costs might double because of the changes brought about by industry acquisitions. Such a scenario not only strain your budget but also consumes valuable time and resources that could have been allocated to strategic initiatives.
  • Cloud Environment Optimisation: Having a Plan B isn’t just a smart move—it’s essential. Imagine relying on a technology vendor only to have them suddenly change their commercial package or sunset the very technologies you depend on. It’s a nightmare scenario for any organisation. As organisations increasingly mature in their adoption of cloud computing and reliance on cloud-based services, optimising your cloud environment has never been more critical.

As the tech landscape continues to evolve, strategic moves like Broadcom’s acquisition of VMware signal a new era of possibilities and challenges. To ensure your organisation is not just prepared but poised to thrive in this dynamic environment, it’s crucial to take proactive steps.
