How to remove your financial operating model from a quagmire of legacy processes, methodologies, and technologies

Public cloud adoption continues at a torrential pace, with compound annual growth rates exceeding 16%. Not only is this adoption expected to reduce core IT costs, it is forecasted to create significant value drivers. McKinsey Digital estimates this value will exceed $1 trillion in 2030. Despite these trends, 80% of CIOs admit they have yet to achieve their targeted value from cloud migration, and estimates reflect that 30% or more of cloud spend is either inefficient or wasted. As such, capturing this $1 trillion value in the cloud has proven frustratingly difficult for many companies. One of the key reasons for this challenge is that the financial operating model remains stuck in a quagmire of legacy processes, methodologies, and technologies.
