The transformative power of cloud computing has had a huge impact on businesses. The cloud model has changed how IT and management work. What is important to consider is how much cloud technologies and methodologies have ensured a strategic and commercial gain for organizations that have successfully migrated to the cloud.

In addition to the adoption of the cloud , another point worth mentioning in this transformation is the strategy adopted in managing the entire technology structure associated with the company's operational management.

In pursuit of best practices

Nowadays we already have a good number of success stories of companies that have adopted the cloud, either in a migration or in a strategic decision since the conception of the idea and the implementation of the company. Likewise, we have those who tried and did not achieve the expected success.

The important thing is that in this history of successes and failures we already have a set of good practices that strongly help in the elaboration of the adequate strategy according to each type of company. Along with this, we have the increase of experienced professionals and companies dedicated to assisting in projects aimed at adopting the cloud, as is the case of Sky.One .

The starting point for creating the best strategy undoubtedly begins with assessing the risks and benefits of adopting cloud computing, and doing so is not an easy task, given that we have increasingly large and complex IT environments. Experts are always discussing the best ways to perform this type of analysis using the best metrics to adopt.

Evaluate cloud costs before and after migration

Another important point that stands out in the best strategy for using the cloud is to be constantly evaluating migration costs, based on the architecture of the entire solution. It is necessary to evaluate all the resources that will be adopted before the migration, being essential to re-evaluate them whenever possible.

This occurs for different reasons. First, because we have technology in constant evolution, with solutions that involve the network structure, hardware and software that can provide better results both in terms of technology and cost reduction.

A second point is the user experience. Evaluate the results that are obtained with practice along with the architecture adopted at the beginning of the project. It is always recommended to check whether the adopted technology structure yielded the investment that was made.

Monitor all resources in use

Once in the cloud, you need to keep an eye on the use of technological resources. AWS, the world's leading cloud provider, offers native management and monitoring tools, as well as strategic partnerships that allow the creation of customized solutions, such as Sky.Saver developed by Sky.One .

Without these tools, companies can spend a lot of money on unused or underutilized cloud resources. Forming a cloud resource usage management strategy avoids unnecessary waste.

Best practices can remedy issues including inefficient resource management and help utilize optimization techniques to get the most out of cloud resources.

Analyze data storage and traffic

One of the main points that goes into the account of cloud computing costs is data, traffic and storage, so it is important to assess the amount of data that travels over the network and all the information that is stored on servers and banks. data.

Try to reevaluate the information that is really necessary in the use of your architecture. Some examples range from log files, media files and the backup of information with low relevance in the database. Do a study together with the network and development team and see what is really needed.

From these examples it is possible to see how necessary it is to develop a correct strategy for using the cloud. When well adjusted, it allows even more access to the benefits offered by the use of cloud computing.
