Avoid failures when migrating to the cloud
Although executives are optimistic about the adoption of cloud computing , migrating the business to this environment is not always a simple task. Many failures happen, for the most part, because of the leaders themselves, as this article on the CIO website suggests .
The publication cites a study by the security provider Fortinet in which 74% of the companies interviewed transferred an application allocated in the cloud to the local server after not seeing the benefits that the application should bring to the business.
Failure in these projects is not a recent problem and technology is not responsible for these errors. Therefore, the CIO site highlighted 3 tips that you can consider when migrating your business to the cloud:
1. Choose a partner provider
You cannot, and should not, take the cloud migration journey alone. It is necessary to close partnerships with providers that will help you to map and define what is necessary to be in a cloud environment .
What are the best applications to move? How to integrate systems and services? How to plan and execute this migration? Public, hybrid or multicloud cloud ? These are questions that this provider can help you answer when designing a strategy.
2. Adapt applications to the cloud
Migrating an application to the cloud means adapting it to this environment. But the problem is that a traditional application is not designed to take advantage of cloud computing and you should keep that in mind.
What is SD-WAN and why businesses use SD-WAN systems in modern technology?
If you take a non-adapted application, it will consume each bit executed as if it were always at peak demand. At the end of the month, you will have to pay for a larger budget than you planned.
3. Find the right skills
Managing your cloud is knowing what skills are needed for the chosen infrastructure. For example, microservice is a type of architecture that will allow your solution to continue running if part of it is unstable.
