Tip 4: Get Your Business Ready For The Cloud

There are many business essentials that need to be in place, according to MReady's Aguilar. First, you need to assign an executive the responsibility to grow your cloud business. Then you must review your value proposition and core competencies and map them to what you want to do in the cloud.

You also need to complete a financial model and business plan for your cloud offering and create a prepackaged template of offerings, as well as train your resources to work with the cloud architectures so they know how to implement and how to develop on top of the cloud.

Finally, you need to market your services once you have your cloud offerings. In particular, make sure your website prominently reflects your new focus on the cloud and notify your customers or prospects about your new services.
