At Intuit, speed, agility and resilience are the biggest drivers in moving aggressively to cloud solutions. One of the company’s biggest learnings is to understand: what are your business’ critical needs; and what are the success metrics you need when using an external service?

It’s essential to ‘test’ your way into cloud: using small tests and validation to learn what you will need in order to scale fast. Also, try to understand which systems are mission critical and which ones are not, and ensure your mission critical ones are resilient in the cloud.
