White paper identifies the key steps for successful migration to the cloud
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provider, Databarracks, has today launched ‘The Ultimate Guide to Cloud Migration’, a white paper focused on addressing the critical factors to consider when migrating to cloud services.
Written by Simon Mohr, Managing Director of SEM Solutions, award-winning migration specialists, the paper seeks to provide clarity on the often overlooked complexities of the migration process.
“Migration is a fundamental part of the adoption process, and yet there’s a tendency in the small and medium enterprise market to focus solely on the hosted cloud environment as a destination, without first considering the journey necessary to get there.” says Mohr.
Peter Groucutt, Managing Director of Databarracks explains, “Migration is rarely a simple process, but it shouldn’t be difficult. In order to overcome the most common, and somewhat severe, pain points it is often the case of being prepared sufficiently.”
Mohr provides a guide to best practice when considering cloud adoption, covering the pain points of a poorly managed transition, as well as a step-by-step guide to the critical control points that should be carefully considered. He shares experience from all stages of the migration process, from the planning and implementation, to testing the process and going live.
“A lot of organisations will have very fixed ideas as to how a move to cloud services should be carried out. In order for this to be successful processes must be bulletproof, with clear accountable owners assigned. There is often a misconception that migration is as easy as flicking a switch – it’s not. Many of our projects today involve as much planning as they do execution.” says Mohr.
This paper aims to breakdown the entire migration process into clear accountable control points, for organisations migrating their data to a cloud service.
