Your executive leadership launched a ‘Cloud First’ strategy with much fanfare a few months ago. At first, it was simple and seemed inexpensive to move workloads to your primary cloud service provider. But now, you feel the cloud provider is taking you for granted — you’ve lost all price negotiation power, and SLAs and response levels are not what they used to be. To make matters worse, your new cloud service bill seems to be out of control.

You are confronted with what is known as the “Cloud Paradox” — the very benefits that made the move to the cloud as a compelling strategy are now causing costs to spiral, stifling innovation, and making it near impossible to repatriate workload from the cloud.
