Cloud enablement is the process of analyzing an organization’s existing IT landscape. Through cloud enablement there is architecting, deploying, and operating a portion of or its entire in-house IT infrastructure, software, and resources to either a public, private or hybrid cloud environment.
In other words, cloud enablement is the process of building a highly effective cloud environment to host IT infrastructure and resources. This includes software, applications, and workloads. Cloud enablement is done when organizations create resources for the cloud or when organizations shift on-premises resources to the cloud to improve performance and reduce costs. This is achieved by following a cloud strategy, which defines the functionality of the cloud, architecture, development process, and governance model.
