We know that migrating your company to the cloud efficiently can be complicated. In order to do it correctly, the company must ask itself two questions: Where are we in the migration and what does it mean for the company to migrate to the cloud efficiently?
To know the current position of the company, as well as the meaning of efficient migration, these questions should be asked.
What is the reason for the company to migrate to the cloud?
The company must be clear about the reason why they are willing to migrate to a cloud server. It may be for various reasons such as outsourcing functions, reducing information technology costs…
In order to establish the objectives of the migration, the company must carry out a feasibility study in which they will see if these objectives are really achievable. If they are not, the migration will not be effective and cannot be carried out.
What does migration offer customers?
Customers increasingly demand more specialized and personalized services, this is something that can be done with the migration to the cloud server.
The company must think about its customers and not only about saving or obtaining benefits, since the migration would fail.
What is the company currently offering?
The company must understand what it is currently doing, what systems they have in place, and how they are using them. The company must know how to adapt the applications they use to get the most out of serverless environments.
What are our users doing?
How servers are used can tell us about how the business is running, from how data moves to knowing which systems need to be replaced. This will help us know what kind of support we should give users.
What is considered a good cloud team?
We must always keep in mind the CCoE (Cloud Center of Excellence) concept, it reports to management and is made up of:
- CIO: Responsible for all migration operations.
- Reliability Engineer: Keeps the server available.
- Infrastructure Engineer: Provides support to the company using shared platforms.
- Security: Monitor the security of the server.
- Cloud architect: Build all the elements of the server in the cloud.
- Project Manager: Manages processes to ensure on-time delivery.
- Network Engineer: In charge of building secure virtual connections in our environments.
- Finance: Manage the expenses of the entire migration process.
- Support: Provides users with technical support.
