Organizations move their infrastructure to the cloud for many reasons as they embrace cloud innovation. The cloud provides scalability, reliability, cost savings, and increased stability. Before businesses make a cloud migration, that is, moving their on-premises data centers to the cloud, it is important to understand the why behind it. The rationale behind the cloud is all about agility and doing business better. The cloud will best serve business leaders looking to bring structured and unstructured data together while serving their customers faster.
However, cloud migration isn’t always for everyone. Jumping into cloud migration can be wrong for several reasons. First, if you don’t understand what the cloud is and what it does, stop there. So many people decide to move forward with cloud computing without being trained or educated. Understanding why people migrate to the cloud and how it helps organizations is a critical first step.
“If anybody is going to cloud because that word was on the front page of CIO magazine, that’s a really bad reason to get there.” – Drew Firment, Navigate 2022
