Everything is looking up. I don’t just mean everything is getting better—and it is—I mean literally everything is looking up to the cloud.
The market continues to shift to cloud, creating leaders and laggards across every industry. This means if you’re an IT operations manager, you’ve likely been asked to start implementing a cloud strategy to transform and solidify the future of your business.
For WebSphere users like me, this is good news and bad news. The good news is there are many different routes to choose from to start your cloud journey. But the bad news is now you have to figure out which route is best suited for you and your business.
Well, once again, things are looking up. IBM is making it easier to find your starting point to cloud with the new WebSphere Cloud Readiness Assessment tool. How does it work? Read on.
Answer 10 Simple Questions
In order to determine your optimal path to cloud, just answer 10 short, simple questions. With those answers, the WebSphere Cloud Readiness Assessment tool can determine your personalized path to cloud. Not someone else’s—yours. All you need to get going is three minutes of your time and the answers to 10 multiple-choice questions.
What’s your cloud starting point?
As I mentioned, there are a multitude of paths and strategies to assist you on your WebSphere journey to cloud. Each path maximizes existing investments, frees resources by minimizing custom integrations and enables new value creation to drive growth while reducing costs. But where do you start? Once you answer the 10 questions, the tool will identify which path is best-suited for your business, and give you a recommendation on a starting point for your cloud journey.

After establishing the starting point, the WebSphere Cloud Readiness Assessment tool also produces a personalized report based on your answers that outlines next steps for you to take on your journey. The report lists recommendations to take advantage of hybrid capabilities and ways to cut costs, speed time-to-market and even create new business models with WebSphere on cloud.
