According to Gartner Research, more than 70% of organisations have started the migration of at least a part of their workloads to the cloud.
To guarantee a successful migration, each migration process must be considered unique, with complexity depending directly on the total number of resources in each project’s scope. The range of systems and platforms that can be migrated to the cloud is vast, with most of them already offering cloud-native versions.
Even if organisations decide to move to the cloud to benefit from it rapidly, a successful migration requires careful planning. IT Leaders’ main challenge is to define the starting point or understand the critical approach vectors, stages, technology, security policies, and the transformation required to garner the best from cloud provider services.
The future is multi-cloud, so organisations also need to consider which is the right cloud to use based on the workloads they want to migrate, although not all workloads are advised to move to the cloud – this is where a hybrid cloud approach is required.
IT leaders need to start with three basic questions: What will be migrated? Why is it being migrated? And how will the migration be executed? Celfocus created a Migration Framework that allows clients to identify the best strategy and capture the value of cloud migration.
Migrating the Omnichannel Portal to the Cloud was a challenging project for this CSP Tier 2 from Europe. With the support of Celfocus, the CSP adopted next-generation cloud migration approaches, anchored in a deep knowledge of the applications to be migrated. This ensured the necessary adaptation to get the most out of the best-performing cloud services, improving customer experience and ensuring better resource utilisation, performance optimisation, and lower operational costs.
