Carrying out the migration to the cloud is not a simple and quick project, although we have already reached maturity, which has considerably reduced the execution time, this initiative requires good planning with well-elaborated steps . This concern aims to reduce the impact and risks on the companies' operations.

Cloud computing has created opportunities for growth and innovative business , so the design phase is critical, having a deep understanding of the business, technical knowledge and experience are part of this important design stage.

Information Technology is currently in the midst of a major shift.

In terms of technology, we left an era characterized as client/server and migrated to cloud computing, of great reach and impossible to avoid. All sectors of the economy can and should benefit from this change , this includes integration with new technologies such as artificial intelligence, autonomous systems, internet of things and much more.

The first challenges of this generational change are linked to IT infrastructure and legacy systems, they were not built to support new technologies and leverage business. Traditional data centers have in their design a maximum limitation of capacity and loads, not designed to be elastic, integrated or flexible.

For companies to participate in this transformation and be part of this future that is already knocking the door, they must undergo a change that consists of migrating their fundamental and essential services to the cloud.

Essential paths of a cloud migration project

To start our tips on a cloud migration project , the first and important step is to change the way we think about the use of technology in companies. Cloud computing consists of a paradigm shift that needs to be transferred to the design of the new infrastructure. New concepts and visions become part of this initiative.

Tip 1: Optimize existing data center for migration plan.

This means that over the years, it is common for us to accumulate a heavy and not very agile structure. Despite the deficiencies and problems it meets the current scenario, but our goals are migration to the cloud, improvement and growth.

Tip 2: Adopt new solutions to replace all legacy

Don't make adaptations to take advantage of the legacy system. Create or adopt new cloud-enabled solutions. Maintaining the same system through adjustments is a risk and may be more expensive than migrating to new systems.

Tip 3: Explore the development of the cloud migration project

Plan, design and exhaustively test your cloud architecture project. Today there are already several tools , companies and professionals that can help with the migration to the cloud. This minimizes risks and enables projects with higher success rates.

These tips are just the beginning for a well-designed project of adopting or migrating to the cloud, subscribe to our blog to always receive news and other valuable tips.
