eBook: A Modern Approach to Cloud Migration Costs and Planning

Sponsored by Apptio

Migrating to the cloud can be transformative, but it is not without risk – cost overrun, operational disruption, and delicate timelines can easily impede migration efforts. Successful cloud migrations require organisations to adopt a “cloud-smart” mindset, determining when to migrate workloads by prioritising those that maximize organisational benefit while minimising effort and cost.

No migration plan is the same. While target end-states may be similar, each organisation must tailor their plan based on business objectives, resources, timing, requirements, and capabilities.

For many, the most challenging migration-related question is “where do I start to formulate my plan?”

To help you find a starting point for your cloud journey, this e-book will highlight key cloud migration considerations, steps, and challenges – helping you embark on your journey with the right information and best practices.

This eBook covers:

  • Understanding your costs
  • Developing and executing your migration strategy
  • Preparing for a soft landing in the cloud
  • Operational best practices and more..
