5 Tips for a Successful Transition to the Cloud


Planning to Transition to the Cloud 

You need to plan ahead to make the process less tedious.



Look into potential business issues that the migration might cause and how to deal with them. It's also worth it to plan for unexpected expenses.


Here are Tips for a Successful Cloud Migration


Plan the Migration 

Assess all your applications to identify those that you want to migrate. Plan as well how you're going to handle disaster recovery, risk management, and other potential situations.



If you haven't chosen a cloud provider yet, look into those that offer a cloud designed specifically for the industry you're in. The goal is for the entire migration to cause minimal disruptions.


Find Ways to Reduce Downtime 

How much your day-to-day operations can tolerate downtime depends on the type of the application involved.

Your team will have higher downtime tolerance for applications that are not that critical. In this regard, migrate those files first so everyone, most especially your IT team, can have a grasp or idea about what to expect during transitions.

Approach the migration in smaller chunks and stay in close coordination with your cloud provider.


Train Your Team Members 

Migration requires careful monitoring to ensure everything is in sync. Train your staff beforehand so they'll know what to expect once the migration rolls out.



Transitioning to the cloud doesn't come without challenges. In addition, the entire process can take longer than planned. Not all IT staff understand the process so it'll help a lot if you'll organize a training for them.


Test Everything 

Don't go live until you're sure the applications are performing properly. Your staff should be able to pinpoint issues with the migration.

If there's any problem, you can always talk to your cloud provider about solutions they'd recommend. They should be able to offer you tools you can use to help you throughout the migration.

If possible, ask your cloud provider to show you how the infrastructure is working so far. Testing will help you ensure that critical data are secured and that everything will be running smoothly once you go live.


Choose a Reliable Cloud Vendor 

If your IT team doesn't have cloud migration expertise, it's best to find a partner that has it. A cloud provider should be attentive to your needs because this is a critical process you're looking at.



Also, look for a partner with goals compatible to yours. They should as well be able to provide a transparent billing statement so you, on the other hand, can see what you're paying for. And which areas may have sudden expenses you need to prepare for.
