What do you hope to achieve by moving to the cloud? There are a number of different strategies when it comes to data migration. Determining your goals will help define the way forward.
Take stock of existing applications and systems and determine integration needs, data load considerations, and the current relationship among dissimilar physical, virtual and cloud platforms.
Different types of data require different levels of security. Determining the security and privacy needs of your individual systems and databases will ensure that your workloads move swiftly and securely to the cloud.
If your data is subject to specific regulatory requirements, make sure you gather the requisite information necessary to inform your migration plan.
Migrating to the cloud can be a significant undertaking that will affect your entire organization. Communicate with internal stakeholders to formulate a cloud readiness plan that results in limited interruption.
