Cloud Migration: Smart Ways to Make the Move

Cloud Migration Services

The cloud is critical to business success.

According to predictions from research firm Gartner, by 2025 companies will use cloud-native platforms to deploy 95% of new digital workloads, up from just 30% in 2021. What’s more, 85% of organizations are now on track to adopt this cloud-first principle by 2025, which includes not only a shift to cloud services but a recognition that effective digital transformation strategies are impossible without the use of cloud-native solutions.

The challenge? Streamlining the shift from on-prem to cloud-based services. Here’s why: While recognition that cloud services are necessary is the first step in effective transition, it’s easy for companies to over-spend or under-commit, in turn making it difficult to get the most from cloud computing platforms.

In this piece, we’ll break down the benefits of cloud migration, explore common strategies for the shift, and offer seven smart ways to make the move.
