Deciding to migrate a business’ IT infrastructure to the Cloud involves a great deal more than the realization that one may not have to purchase all of the software, hardware and IT infrastructure nominally required to run the business. First, is it a sound economic decision? How can we measure net present value? Benefit ratios? Payback periods?
Are there metrics we can use to determine if the Cloud is a viable solution? Measuring the Cloud requires that we examine issues of security, usage and response time in terms of metrics – can these be quantified? Once a decision has been made to migrate, how can we devise a plan? Questions like how can I characterize my business; what are my mission critical systems, and do I follow the evolution or the Big Bang concept must be addressed.
And, once there, how can a business establish sustainable operations within the Cloud?
These and other key issues with migrating to the Cloud are addressed for the business management team contemplating a move into the Cloud.
