Cloud Migration Done Right: Don’t do it ALL in one go

Blog: Indium Software - Big Data

The Covid-19 pandemic has been bad news at the economic, personal, and social levels globally. But this cloud too has a silver lining! Especially for cloud adoption itself – or rather, digitization.

According to a McKinsey Global Survey of executives, digitization of internal operations and customer and supply-chain interactions have accelerated up by three to four years with the share of digital or digitally enabled products in their portfolios having speeded up by an astounding seven years. To meet the increasing demand in times of lockdown and social distancing, businesses had to adopt at least temporary digital solutions to cope and maximize revenues.

This has definitely had an impact on the DNA of the organizations as many of these changes are expected to be more long-lasting with a corresponding increase in funding for digital initiatives as well. Cloud is at the forefront of all digital initiatives and all digitization efforts begin with the migration of at least a part of the data and apps to the cloud.

And this trend is expected to continue. According to an IDC forecast, nearly 90% of businesses globally are expected to opt for hybrid, private or multiple public cloud environments to meet their growing infrastructure needs by 2022 to be agile and scale up quickly to meet the increasing demands.

Have a Long-Term Strategy for Your Cloud Migration

While migrating to the cloud sooner or later is inevitable, the cloud is not just a technology but should be part of a digitization strategy. In the pandemic situation, most businesses adopted the cloud as a reaction and response to the changing environment rather than a proactive and deliberate approach.

Like all transformations, migration to the cloud too needs plans, goals, processes and so on. Businesses need to have a clear understanding of why they want to migrate, the process they should follow, the timing, which parts of their business, where to locate their cloud server and so on before making the irretrievable investment. Creating a long-term strategy will enable businesses to derive the best value from these investments.

To thrive in this post-pandemic world and to continue on their transformation journey, businesses need to now pause and evaluate the effectiveness of their current approach. What is driving the migration to the cloud?

A Holistic Approach Customized to Your Needs

Identifying the specific objective will influence the course of the path you choose for the migration. It will require collaboration and agreement across the organization to ensure you stay on the path and achieve the goals. To develop an enterprise-wide strategy:

More than the actual migration, what is more difficult is to decide on the right destination, the right path, and routing the right map for the migration to the cloud. To some extent, this will depend on the maturity of your current cloud deployment.

Over time, you may have to change your strategic decisions based on the changing needs of the organizations and the different maturity levels at the various functions. Cloud’s flexibility and scalability facilitate data management with ease but getting it right initially is crucial to future-proofing your business and protect your investment.
