Don’t think about the cloud as an inevitable next step for all workloads. The cloud is merely another tool in the toolbox, ready to be used when appropriate and put away when it’s not needed. Cloud-first isn’t always the way to go.
Evaluate workloads’ suitability for the cloud using Info-Tech’s methodology to select the optimal migration (or non-migration) path based on the value of cloud characteristics. This research will help you:
- Codify risks tied to workloads’ cloud suitability and plan mitigations.
- Build a roadmap of initiatives for actions by workload and risk mitigation.
- Define a cloud vision to share with stakeholders.
