Ensure cloud migration success

From discovery and auditing to technical scoping and repatriation of applications and data, to the governance that need to be complied with throughout the process, cloud migration is an extremely complex procedure, with a high delay/failure rate. 

Whether it’s a cloud-native, hybrid, or workload-specific configuration, enterprises face common struggles when undertaking this transition.

 

Enterprise challenges: 

  • Complexity around aligning people, process, and technology that are compounded by their scale
  • An inability to get a full view of the ‘current state’, and bring order to the chaos 
  • Pressure to compress downtimes/waiting time, for customers, both internal and external
  • Top-down pressure for details, visibility, and progress, to deliver on business transformation goals 
  • Proliferation of migration tools, meaning multiple interfaces, and no single source of truth or control
  • Cross-team communication and collaboration issues between development and business functions when planning, mobilizing teams, and executing the migration 
  • Large regulatory fines if sufficient due diligence and processes are not undertaken prior to migration
