Why Engage in a Cloud Readiness Workshop?
Many organizations have been slow to adopt the cloud due to perceived risks or concerns surrounding security, compliance, integration, performance, or expenses. A Cloud Readiness Workshop helps organizations get the information they need to build a solid cloud migration strategy. At its core, the Cloud Readiness Workshop is really about understanding your organization’s challenges and business requirements in order to make expert recommendations to fuel your cloud adoption journey.
After the Cloud Readiness Workshop: Proof of Concept Migration
Undertaking a cloud migration and transformation project is a big step. A Cloud Readiness Workshop can help the process, but what’s next? In many cases, a Proof of Concept migration can further validate the strategy laid out in the workshop and accelerate your cloud adoption while you see the benefits of cloud migration directly. A Proof of Concept also helps to resolve potential issues before a migration project gets underway.
While your team is planning a migration, thinking about how you will optimize your new cloud landscape will help you take advantage of the efficiencies that the cloud has to offer, including cloud automation. A great cloud infrastructure makes use of a good cloud platform and a custom-built cloud automation framework that helps your team focus on high-value work, and not day-to-day tedium.
Building a comprehensive cloud migration strategy starts with careful planning and consideration. Failing to adequately prepare for a migration can mean serious complications, missed opportunities, and extra expenses. Learn the five considerations you should make before building your migration strategy.
Because every organization has different goals and needs, no single migration plan is going to work for everyone. Regardless, there are certain key best practices that can make a migration smoother and more efficient.
