Fully Embrace the Cloud
Oftentimes organizations think about the cloud provider's infrastructure as an extension of their own, 'bringing an old-school legacy mentality' to cloud adoption, says Patrick Foxhoven, CIO and vice president of emerging technologies at ZScaler.
'A lot of times, companies will think about how to pin their corporate network with the cloud provider's environment and run physical circuits stitching the two together,' he says. As a result, connectivity is static and businesses miss certain advantages, like achieving the full portability and elasticity of the cloud.
Foxhoven attributes the misstep to a lack of insight and education around the new capabilities that cloud can provide, as well as 'unwillingness to think about new things.'
