Moving to the cloud delivers multiple benefits – lower costs, greater agility and better resource utilisation. Making it possible to rapidly scale resources to support fast-changing business priorities, while achieving cost-efficiencies. But migrating production systems to a cloud environment is a complex and challenging undertaking that requires careful planning. And a deep understanding of the issues involved.
Without the right skills or migration strategy in place, you risk compromising the security, reliability, availability and uptime of your cloud environment. Any failure to understand the key migration factors that determine execution success will lead to schedule slips, budget overruns, compliance violations and other disruptions.
You need an ‘end-to-end’ process that mitigates risk, delivers predictable outcomes and ensures your digital transformation goes as planned.
Finally, to help you achieve your migration goals you need resources you can rely on, like those provided by IBM, whose broad portfolio of cloud products includes infrastructure, developer tools and services.
Key challenges for cloud migration include:
- Knowing which workloads to migrate, to which cloud model (SaaS, PaaS, IaaS)
- Gaining a 360-degree view of the businesses’ life-cycle stage, integration, compliance and security requirements to clearly define a migration strategy
- Eliminating the risk of outages or delays
