All of us have learned a lot over the past few years. Covid-19 has highlighted a variety of drawbacks and advantages as “WFH” emerges as the abbreviation of choice for many businesses.
Even though WFH has become the new standard, many businesses are planning forward to address the particular requirements and goals of the post-pandemic era.
Before accelerating their transition to the cloud, businesses continue to rely on outdated infrastructure and business strategies. The exploration of the cloud and contemporary technologies requires the development of a proactive approach that aids in the shift away from the older systems.
Engaging with cloud lifecycle management service partners is crucial if current and newer businesses want to move their technology to the cloud more quickly.
Three Dimensions On The Journey to Cloud-based Operations
Discover The Apps & IT Infrastructure
In order to map dependencies and workload performance, a 360° thorough investigation of the infrastructure and applications is carried out during this phase.
To facilitate the migration, set management, and other compliance requirements, a hierarchical view is necessary.
In order to understand what should be taken into account during cloud transformation, a roadmap is built for readiness and an automated discovery plan is created for the business environment.
A set of cloud transformation sprints is also created, and the entire structure is formulated to address the subsequent sprints. While delving deeply into the discovery phase, the following considerations must be made:
- – The services that are being moved to the cloud
- – Reasons for moving to the cloud
- – Is a cloud strategy in place and how are the companies cloud plans defined
- – The applications that are dependent on one another and how are they connected
Accelerate Cloud Migration
The goal of this phase is to enable a smooth migration of the current workloads to hybrid or multi-cloud systems so that end-user services may continue. When migrating unaltered applications into a hosted cloud environment, virtual resources must be made available and deployments must be managed across several cloud providers, including public, private, and hybrid, all at once.
By determining the necessary virtual infrastructure, cloud management platform, and getting a 360-degree perspective of the application from the transformational partner, the target cloud environment is prepared. This phase aids in hastening the migration process so that it can be completed more quickly and at the lowest possible cost.
Continuous Optimization and Management
After the deployment of the cloud, accommodating the highest possible application availability around-the-clock becomes a big challenge. During unexpected demands or failures, a full stack availability of the apps across the necessary platforms is necessary.
In addition to being available 24/7, it’s critical to minimize cloud expenses by monitoring consumption statistics at the service and application level, dynamically scaling cloud resources, and deftly redistributing workloads. As a result, prices for real utilization are reduced.
