A Simplified Approach to a Successful Cloud Migration
Today’s customers expect the best from the service providers, therefore, most companies are investing extensively in the essential infrastructures like cloud and container services. Business leaders are steering their organizations towards building applications in the cloud increasing their development speed in order to respond to the market requirements and trends faster. Cloud is capable of scaling the workloads easily and can also be attractive in terms of cost structure.
The C-level leaders have to be careful as cloud migrations are challenging. The key to success in the cloud space is employing the right data to make intelligent decisions. Improving their decision-making capabilities is crucial for organizations. Therefore, organizations today understand how important it is to measure every business operation that they are running.
Therefore, companies rely on planning and instrumentation to implement successful cloud migrations. At first, they create a baseline for their applications to identify if any problem occurs during the migration. Secondly, they develop an understanding the application and service frameworks in their environment to prioritize the order of the workloads to be migrated. Relying on the key performance indicators (KPIs), organizations check the cloud-readiness of their on-premise servers and applications. Finally, when the required performance of the applications is attained in the cloud, companies accelerate their initiatives and take a step further to experiment in the cloud.
