Chapter 2. Preflight Check

Chapter 2. Preflight Check

A US government CIO when asked, “Assuming that the Cloud is the future for a lot of current computing functions, what can an organization do now to prepare and future-proof their organization?” replied, “Find out what you have. That is the best place to start”.
