As the cloud can digitally transform a business, it’s no secret that moving to the cloud is in the mind-set of all businesses regardless of their size. For this reason, the number of companies moving their infrastructure and applications to a cloud platform has increased exponentially. Now the question isn’t whether or not a business should fully or partially move to a cloud platform. Rather, the question is which type of cloud they should be moving to -public or private or a hybrid platform.

 What is driving companies to choose the cloud?

There are a variety of reasons why businesses are moving to the cloud. The cloud provides scalability, quick deployment/implementation, ease of management, disaster recovery and more. These are all inherent benefits associated with the cloud which companies find compelling versus adhering to a legacy environment.

What does it mean to migrate to the cloud?

Even the most seasoned IT professionals, migrating legacy systems and infrastructure to a public or private cloud can be a daunting task. During the migration, it gives organizations a chance to gain insights into how to revise, rethink and improve their organization’s IT architecture.

When businesses migrate to cloud they should plan a phased implementation. When a migration is not planned thoroughly, it may result in organizations not fully capitalizing on the benefits of moving to the cloud. Also a migration from legacy systems to cloud should happen without impacting business operations, service delivery, business performance and data protection requirements.

Key questions to consider during the migration phase:

  • What workload are you planning to move to the cloud?
  • How much of your workload do you need to move to the cloud?
  • How are you going to execute it?

As a cloud candidate, you may also have the following reservations:

  • What workloads make business sense for your organization to move to the cloud?
  • How will align your cloud strategy to your business and IT goals?
  • You are not sure about data security; how will it be protected and where it will be located?
  • How will your existing or legacy workloads will run in the cloud?

Aligning business goals and devising an effective cloud strategy is critical.
