Head in the Cloud? Things to Consider for Cloud Migration

Blog: Appian Insight

If your organization is like most, it’s probably thinking about moving to the cloud.

And it should…Organizations across the globe have been embracing the flexibility and cost-saving benefits of the cloud for some time now, and cloud computing has gotten sophisticated enough to create truly agile business environments.

But, you might have some hesitations…

How reliable are cloud environments?

Are apps built in the cloud scalable?

What about security?



All good questions.

Appian’s Application Platform-as-a-Service (aPaaS) allows you to rapidly create, deploy, and scale apps. Get started—fast—with intuitive, drag-and-drop design and development tools. Then scale with ease once your app is running. Redundancy and hosting across global data centers allow you to enjoy global rollout, and elastic growth adds server capacity on-demand as your solution grows.

What’s more? 24/7 system monitoring and a 99.95% SLA uptime guarantee promises reliability, and you can rest assured knowing that the Appian Cloud is “always on.

Yet, those security concerns are echoing in the back of your head.

Will my data be compromised?

How likely is the threat of a security breach?

Does this meet my compliance needs?

We understand. That’s why Appian Cloud has an exhaustive security and compliance program that meets several industry standards, including PCI compliance, HIPAA, FedRAMP, SOC 2, SOC 3, GxP, among many others.

Still not sure about moving to the cloud?

Portability options between cloud and on-premises provides ultimate flexibility so you have the control to operate and address your organization’s needs in the way that makes the most sense for your unique environment.
