Use a Propensity Model to Assess Cloud Readiness

The rapid ascent of the cloud to the top of strategic organizational agendas supports the idea that cloud computing is where computing is headed in the future. The travel, transportation, and hospitality sectors are also true of this. Players in this industry are aware of how crucial cloud adoption is to seize the digital opportunity. The difficulties in this sector, however, are unique from those in others. The customer journey encompasses several touchpoints; there are businesses of varying sizes; they must work in conjunction with other industry participants, and customer-centricity is essential to not only corporate success but also survival. In other words, the business procedures used in the tourism and hospitality sectors differ significantly from those used in other sectors.


Cloud Readiness


For business players, switching to the cloud is not a simple choice. They must first evaluate their level of cloud readiness. There is a propensity to assess cloud readiness from an IT-only perspective, which can result in expensive errors and have long-term effects on the business. A comprehensive commercial, data, and technological analysis are required.


A cloud propensity model can be helpful in this situation. A careful analysis of the entire company and sub-business process environment captures the comprehensive business process perspective. It offers a framework for evaluating the present environment and makes it evident where the organization stands in relation to industry benchmarks.


The cloud propensity model offers a critical, comparative assessment to identify departures from industry standards as well as a much-needed industrial view of cloud adoption by measuring the business process maturity on three essential aspects of business, information, and technologies. During the evaluation phase, this model can save months of work, which helps to prioritize and order the business processes for cloud computing adoption.


Through a three-step procedure, the cloud propensity models for the hospitality and travel sector track more than 30 indicators across the business, data, and technological dimensions.


Step 1: Evaluate the enterprise’s most important business processes using a comparative analysis with a cloud business propensity model tailored to your industry.


Step 2: Establish reference architectures and cloud migration methods.


Step 3: Choose accelerators to hasten the adoption of cloud computing.


The evaluation based on the propensity model provides important insights into the priorities for cloud migration. Three categories are used to group the business processes.


60–100 percentage propensity: Significant degree of cloud readiness with market-proven business process solutions. These operations would be among the first to use the cloud.


45-60 percentage propensity: Varying degrees of readiness with only a few established cloud-based solutions available. It will take a little longer to move certain business processes.


Less than 45% likelihood: Mainly because of mainframe and legacy technology, businesses have a low tendency to use the cloud. The transition of these business operations to the cloud will take three to four years, and they will initially be housed in the company’s data center.

Cloud Readiness Assessment


A propensity model-based evaluation of a company’s cloud readiness reveals outmoded business processes that are not in line with industry norms and directs businesses to concentrate first on aligning these processes, which promotes the cloud’s long-term health and performance. It offers:



● An excellent methodology for determining the cloud adoption industry standards.
● A comparison study that showed differences from industry benchmarks.
● Knowing every business operation's business, data, and technological aspects.
