Key Considerations When Planning Your Migration

  1. Business Impact: Which cloud opportunities will deliver the greatest business value, and where are the quick wins that will demonstrate impact and build belief within the business?
  2. Security and Compliance Needs: What are the specific security and compliance requirements of your business? How can adopting cloud solutions with in-built security and resilience improve your ability to protect your users and your data?
  3. Current Environment Complexity: How complex is your current on-premises IT environment and what interdependencies exist? Understanding this will help you plan a phased transition and identify the support you’ll need.
  4. Time to Value: How quickly are you looking to achieve the business benefits? What’s the opportunity cost of resource constraints delaying your migration and what else could you invest in to grow your business if you accelerate your migration plans?
