Star Knowledge: Easing the Transition to Cloud

CIO Vendor An increasing number of organizations are moving applications to the cloud in order to lower infrastructure costs, modernize current IT asset base, optimize business agility and prepare the business for future needs. However, the process of cloud migration is not just limited to moving digital business operations to the cloud. A successful migration largely depends on migration providers and specialists gaining a complete understanding of how the solution would work, the customer’s long term goals, security challenges, complexities with hybrid setup, compliance and ROI. Additionally, the solution provider must ensure minimal disruption within the current ecosystem while transitioning to cloud in tandem with identifying any risk that may be involved and steps to mitigate it. One needs a strategic approach for migrating applications to a cloud environment.
