What You Have to Do to Make Your Cloud Migration Go Smoothly

What You Have to Do to Make Your Cloud Migration Go Smoothly

The cloud can be a wonderful asset for a business that utilizes it well—particularly if the business can move much of its IT workload to the provider. For organizations that are considering migration to the cloud, we have some helpful tips and tricks to make the process easier than ever.

How Dependent On the Cloud Do You Want to Be?

One of the many benefits to cloud solutions is that they are not necessarily an all-in type of solution. You can host part of your infrastructure in the cloud while hosting some of it in-house, or you can host most of it in the cloud—whichever you prefer. Your business’ needs will vary from others, so you’ll want to go into the decision with clear intentions and an understanding of what your company needs.

What Key Performance Indicators Are Important to You?

Key performance indicators, or KPIs, are crucial to any successful cloud implementation. These are designed to help you gauge how effective the move to the cloud is for your company. You might discover issues during the process. Here are some of the KPIs you should consider keeping an eye on:

  • User experience - How long do pages take to load, and how long is the lag?
  • Application performance - How often are your cloud applications functioning properly (or improperly?)
  • Infrastructure - How much of your potential CPU and memory usage is being used, and how well does the network perform?
  • Business engagement - How effective is your business at converting prospects to clients? How engaged are your prospects and clients?

This is just a shortlist of what you should look for; there may be more, depending on the type of business you run.

What Baseline Are You Comparing These KPIs To?

If you want to measure the impact of your cloud solution, then you should first start by collecting information post-migration. This will give you an accurate gauge to measure your progress with. This is easy enough to do, but you have to make sure that you are doing it over a long enough timeframe to get an accurate measurement. Once you have the data, you’ll be able to take similar measurements post-migration to determine the impact of your cloud solution.
