A Proven, Business-Focused Approach

SUMMARY

This study explains that companies should only migrate where there is business value; third-party applications, for instance, do not always offer business value for cloud migration.

This report is focused on the design and implementation of a smart cloud-migration strategy. Companies need to start by setting business goals, while the second step of the process consists of grouping applications into “clusters". Start with easy, low-dependency clusters, the research explains. It also suggests transforming complex apps by using microservices and only afterward migrate them. It is also essential to move to SaaS whenever it is possible.

This is the so-called “canary-based” approach to migration. Less complex applications and software migrate first so that any negative effects can be easily tested. 

The research notes that it is important to be aware that just looking for cost reduction might not be the right approach. It is essential to balance the need for cost-efficiency against the upside of disruptive cloud capabilities, like machine learning or natural- language processing.

A cloud migration normally interconnects with other aspects of the business-IT architecture. Firms should take advantage of the momentum of cloud migration to further IT automation. Finally, it is necessary to keep the cloud migration aligned with business goals and concentrate on generating the first-line impact along with cost reductions.
