Many companies hear about Cloud projects and simply think, "Okay, going cloud is the way to go, so we need to follow suit". But we must move to the cloud in a smart way - by identifying the right processes and optimization of operations in order to fully enjoy the benefits. Right now, we’re moving away from the traditional legacy system into what we call a new, more open system. We must stay abreast of digitalization transformation. And we must push ourselves to go even further.
We are embarking on the journey of migrating from a physical machine to virtualization and working towards creating our own private cloud on-premises. With this, we can scale our system resource within a short period as well as reduce our data center footprint. We reduce a lot of things to help the company to bring down the cost. Of course, none of this would be possible without the strong support from my team.
Communication is key
My team came together and said, "Okay, if we were to go virtualization, what things do we need to consider, what things do we need to configure? Then, by doing that, would it be able to meet the business requirement in a way we want it to look?" We do all this assessment, present the proposal to management, then do all the testing.
We sometimes fail but we’ve always made it work. When we encounter challenges, this can create a lot of retakes. However, open communication is important in order to reduce this and make things run more smoothly to come up with a solution. We’ve been together through thick and thin, but we’ve always succeeded.
