Where should NeBu Systems go next? They have successfully broken apart their monolithic application and now utilize cloud services. Is it a case of congratulations on finishing? Or is it congratulations on starting? Did NeBu successfully migrate or transform?
Migrations are a series of things that get done. Migrations seem tangible: from this to that, from here to there. Transformations, interestingly, are mental and emotional. Transformations require a change in mindset. Transformations require constant data that can be continuously compared to expose insights and establish perceived value.
Migrations are planned and executed. Transformations are adopted. Without adoption, transformation fails. Adoption requires a change in mindset, often created from a continuous digestion of highly valued relevant data and insight. This means continuously sensing the environment and continuously changing your actions to better align with goals, which are also changing continuously. We, the authors, call this being senso-morphic. Businesses and people tasked with adapting and driving change must become senso- morphic.
Today, many are flooded with data, yet remain uninformed. Many know they are in the wrong place, yet struggle to know where they are. The only sustainable path for positive transformation is to become senso-morphic. In the world of cloud computing, this means being senso-morphic across many domains, simultaneously. The senso-morphic domains are shown in the following table:
This book is but the first step in a long journey. Our wish is that we've prepared you well. Good luck.
