Performance and configuration baselines are critical in understanding the current state of your application environment prior to migrating to the cloud. Without generating cloud baselines, it would be difficult for you to measure your cloud migration success.
Defining cloud migration success starts with setting business objectives and establishing key performance indicators (KPIs) that should meet what the business aims to achieve. In agile, think of business objectives as the Definition of Done where deliverables are discussed with the teams involved to build a common understanding of work completion. On the other hand, think of KPIs as acceptance criteria that need to be satisfied before a particular deliverable can be considered complete.
Cloud migration is already mainstream. Studies show that at least 70% of businesses already migrated their workloads to the cloud. Since the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, metrics show growth in workload migration from on-premises to the cloud. While this trend may have started before COVID-19 as cloud-transformation initiatives, it was accelerated because of lockdowns and remote work setup. Companies are adapting to digital workplaces to deal with the increase in online demand, wherein cloud migration is the best solution to support this.
