Over the last several years we have seen a surge in demand for online cloud services. Many companies are migrating their data and services to a cloud environment in order to meet the demands of employees working remotely. Organizations that had already started moving to cloud are accelerating their cloud transformation. Companies that have not started are now asking, how fast can we get something going?
Cloud adoption by the enterprise is increasingly common.
Currently, the majority of enterprises use the cloud in one form or another form while most organizations are leveraging multiple clouds and hybrid cloud architectures. Cloud Computing comes in many shapes and sizes and migration can involve one or many of the types of clouds. Public clouds are defined as having services that are delivered over the public internet, and private clouds consist of secure cloud infrastructure available to only a specific organization. Companies usually use several clouds, both public and private, in a hybrid cloud environment that can also include on-prem computing assets. This multi cloud trend is driven by matching applications to the cloud infrastructure that is best suited to each specific workload. Multicloud strategies add stability while increasing flexibility and scalability.
Digital transformation is a big driver of cloud migration trends.
Organizations are utilizing cloud infrastructures to spur innovation,hone go-to-market strategies, and enhance customer experience. Companies can also leverage the elasticity of the cloud to accelerate development projects and introduce new services and products in their respective markets.
There are many questions to be answered as it relates to a cloud migration, and businesses of all sizes require assistance in making their cloud journeys. If your technical forecast says “Cloudy with a chance of IT flexibility” then here are some things we’d like you to think about for your cloud migration strategy.
