Now that you understand why it’s important to move to the cloud, check out some steps that must be taken for this change to be successful.
Assess your current IT infrastructure
It all starts by making a rigorous assessment of the available technological framework. Ideally, IT should perform a full audit to identify equipment and tools in use in all departments of the company.
Thus, it is possible to scale everything that the company has already invested and then verify which processes and routines are worth migrating to the cloud.
Select the ideal provider
The right partner can make the difference between a successful migration to the cloud and an unfortunate tragedy. Look for a reliable cloud service provider to support you in this movement.
What you should look for in a partner is your previous experience working on similar projects, with clients who are comparable in size and industry to your company. Having a certified team also helps.
And be careful: do not close a deal without first checking all the details of the service level agreement and all contractual clauses. Remember that this is a long-standing partnership, so it must be beneficial for both parties.
Decide what you are going to migrate to the cloud
Although cloud computing is great, it is not ideal for all companies and scenarios. There may be cases where some of your applications would be better left on your servers instead of migrating to the cloud - such as applications that due to their characteristics require a local infrastructure, such as applications that require high processing at the edge or when there is difficulty or risk in relation to trusted link providers.

There is no complete and immediate migration to the cloud. The most realistic is a gradual migration, understanding which applications can be contracted in the form of software as a service (SaaS); investing in platforms as a service (PaaS) so that new applications that may already be born in the cloud, or even replace, in whole or just parts, their physical infrastructures for infrastructure as a service (IaaS), which can be done with highly specialized companies, whose expertise is the migration and support of cloud production environments.
