Getting Ready for Cloud Migration

Contributed by Neev Technologies on 12 Dec 2012

Many enterprises are struggling both with deciding which applications should be moved to the cloud and which combination of vendors to use.

Typically, IT infrastructure is split into three areas: on-premise, the private cloud, and the public cloud. As enterprises come to better understand the nature of their on-premise environments, they can find better ways to take advantage of the cloud, reaping both cost savings and business benefits. With this aspiration, however, comes the sobering recognition that they often don’t understand their existing assets all that well.

Enterprise IT leaders recognize that there are highly specific cost-benefit analyses to be done regarding whether to keep an application on-premise, put it in a private cloud, or run it in a public cloud, but don’t always have a clear grasp of the economic and flexibility trade offs of doing so.

The starting point of cloud migration analysis understands the value created by the on-premise assets and the cost of providing that value. Organization should look at the complete portfolio in terms of the infrastructure, applications, and the support the application is calling for. Then, it should look at the nature of the applications. Some applications are able to be moved to the cloud, and some can be moved at some point in time, but not yet. Some may be better served by staying on premise.

Here are some of the questions you need to answer:

  1. What does the “cloud” mean for your business?
  2. Which business needs can be addressed by the cloud?
  3. When is “cloud” right for your business?
  4. Are you really ready to take advantage?
  5. How you can take advantage of the cloud
  6. What is the economic advantage?
  7. What are the components of the cloud that can be utilized?

A typical engagement exercise can be a few days to a few weeks and will give you a firm idea on the following:

  1. Identify cloud services advantages
  2. Architecture assessment
  3. Optimization of current environment
  4. Identifying dependencies & key performance criterion
  5. Recoding or redesign needs and benefits
  6. Economic advantage
  7. Feasibility & roadmap for movement to cloud
