When moving IT infrastructure to the cloud, it’s essential to have a strategic plan to guide you. Here are a few things you should consider.
First of all, setting expectations for everyone involved in the process is important, particularly when it comes to the costs of migration and any cultural adjustments needed.
Next, you should begin by focusing on company leadership. Because your leadership should drive your cloud move, their buy-in alone is probably not sufficient for your cloud migration to succeed—they have to own it.
If leadership is driving your move to the cloud, it may be useful to set expectations about “simple” subjects like cost forklifting (if this is not a greenfield effort) and subsequent effort to move to “cloud native.” Additionally, more abstract notions around employee retraining and the hiring of new employees (and/or consultants) to assist in the effort should be addressed. It’s also important to set expectations about the length of the entire process.
