Multiple aspects of cloud computing are motivating organizations to develop a compelling business case for cloud modernization and migration today.
Organizations recognize the financial value of moving applications and data to the cloud. Using the cloud means almost limitless scalability, and the flexibility of cloud-based resources can increase business agility. The cloud can also facilitate adopting and leveraging new techniques and services, such as machine learning, AI, and advanced analytics.
With these compelling characteristics, it is just a matter of time before most organizations plan to migrate at least some aspect of their existing application and data landscapes to the cloud. However, a smooth transition requires a tactical migration plan.
This TDWI Checklist Report recommends practices that can ease the cloud migration process, including assessing your readiness, addressing any resistance to change, and strategic considerations such as increasing automation.
