Model for Moving to the Cloud and Outsourcing Strategy

- Applications which are in the support and factory quadrant are the ideal candidates to be moved into cloud, this gives considerable cost advantage by reducing the IT infrastructure cost, removing the need to maintain the skills in house and allowing more focus on the strategic applications which are more critical for the business.
