Question: What should a client’s priority be when it comes to cloud-migration strategies?
Answer: In my opinion, there is no perfect strategy. It is the cloud experience and confidence that matters. However, in my opinion, customers should think about Cloud as a vehicle for their Digital Innovations, resulting in business transformation beyond cost considerations while evaluating migration of a specific set of applications.
It is a well-known fact that digital transformation has the potential to deliver on strategic goals for organizations such as improved revenues and profitability, new business models and customer partner or employee satisfaction, where customers might have an immediate cloud need for their infrastructure migration. Having the foresight about their IT and transformation needs in the future. Help in making the right decision on cloud providers.
MSRCosmos has been involved in helping over 50 customers across the globe migrate their applications and data center infrastructure to cloud. In most migrations we have noticed a few common challenges due to the nature of evolution of infrastructure and applications that are consider for migration.
