When it comes to ensuring successful cloud infrastructure there are certain KPIs that you need to pay close attention to. Key Performance Indicators such as cost and quality can make a large impact on the bottom line of your business. Tracking your cloud infrastructure’s KPIs can help your business measure its cloud performance all the while developing new strategies to improve your business overall.

Today we are going to review which KPIs your business needs to address to stay competitive. If your business is looking to make the most of its cloud infrastructure it is time that you consider these three KPIs that your business should be measuring to indicate if your cloud strategy is working. Keep reading to see which are the ones your business should be looking out for.

#1: Security

The level of security and compliance is a performance indicator that your business cannot afford to ignore. From evaluating the reliability of your access points to rigorous compliance, it’s important to keep a close eye on security measures. Your cloud infrastructure, whether public or private cloud solutions, needs to ensure that only the right people have access to confidential information. Take the time to note how compliant you are with each of your security requirements. Everything from physical access if you have an on-premise solution to GDPR needs to be reviewed regularly to ensure that everything is up to date.

#2: Cost

Cost and ROI is a big factor when it comes to successful cloud infrastructure. Your business needs a solution that is working to bring returns not to drain financial resources. When it comes to selecting a cloud provider taking the time to calculate the infrastructure costs from the bottom up can help your business compare providers. After choosing a trusted cloud provider then it might be worth measuring how much cloud spend is your business using and how much is being wasted. Track these measurements frequently to ensure that overall waste goes down not up.

#3: User Experience

In any business strategy, the quality of user experience is a metric that needs to be tracked closely. It is important to keep the user experience at the core of your KPIs for successful cloud infrastructure. Does your cloud infrastructure have frequent downtime? Are you losing data in the disruptions of service? Is your cloud running as optimally as it should be? These are questions that need to be addressed in order to optimize your cloud infrastructure and improve overall user experience.
