Future proofing your digital business by moving to the cloud
The pandemic demonstrated that to face unexpected challenges, business needs to be agile and resilient.
By moving to the cloud, you will be able to innovate in new ways by adopting a cloud operations-based model on infrastructure as a service (IaaS) technologies. Additionally, you will be able to take advantage of further opportunities for innovation by modernising with fully managed platform as a service (PaaS) offerings.
Scalability: The cloud removes the physical constraints to scalability and reduces the financial limitations of adding servers and the supporting infrastructure to your data centre(s).
Cost-effectiveness: The cloud lets you pay for only the capacity you use. Instead of adding on-premise capacity to anticipate scalability you may not need, with cloud, you pay only for the capacity you need now and scale on demand when you need to.
Security: Clouds typically are secure environments that comply with applicable industry standards and government regulations. They are protected through security solutions and tools, best practices, and policies that cloud providers update as needed on a regular basis and at scale.
Accelerated adoption: Migrating applications to the cloud allows you to adopt new technologies faster, while also enabling affordable, just-in-time technology adoption in response to business opportunities.

Migrating applications and data to the cloud requires a set of tools to help avoid common pitfalls. Many legacy applications in a network are not optimised for the cloud, so they must be prepared for migration through use of tools designed specifically for the task.
Migration tools are necessary because they simplify and accelerate the migration process delivering minimal disruption to your day-to-day operations. Automated tools, specifically, are designed to remove the complexities of migration and speed the process.
Cloud Migration Strategy
A successful cloud migration requires the planning and execution of a comprehensive strategy that sets migration goals, creates a timeline, anticipates challenges, and defines the project’s success.
Migration strategies take into account which workloads to move to the cloud, which to keep on-premise, and which new capabilities and applications to add once in the cloud. Your migration strategy should cover specific use cases for the applications to be migrated. This may include your key line-of-business applications, data backup and recovery, productivity and collaboration applications, or software development projects. Defining use cases up-front enables you to create a solid strategy and sets the foundation for a properly executed migration process.
