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.

The Role of Application Discovery in Cloud Migration

Posted by Danica Esteban on May 10, 2022 12:05:24 PM

Most organizations understand the importance of having a concrete plan and strategy when migrating to the cloud. In the article we've published recently, we've recommended starting your cloud migration journey by setting business objectives and establishing key performance indicators (KPIs). These two play a significant role in defining your cloud migration success. However, establishing KPIs and benchmarking metrics will be an uphill task if you don't have a complete understanding of all of your IT assets, applications, services, and the interdependencies among all of them. For this very reason, we've introduced the Discover stage as part of the cloud migration strategy we've been utilizing in IT-Conductor.

How Do You Measure 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: Benefits and Its Challenges

Posted by Linh Nguyen on Apr 13, 2022 10:45:00 AM

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.

Cloud computing has gained popularity as more and more organizations realize the business value it brings to the table. As cloud adoption becomes mainstream, it is no longer a question for organizations “if” they need to migrate to the cloud, rather, “what” their cloud-first strategy would be.

Drivers Behind Cloud Transformation Initiatives: A Closer Look

Posted by Danica Esteban on Aug 9, 2021 8:30:00 AM

According to IBM Institute for Business Value C-Suite Series: The 2021 CEO Study, with insights from more than 3,000 CEOs around the world, the COVID-19 pandemic served as a turning point for how businesses respond to uncertainties. As CEO Fernando Gonzalez of CEMEX mentioned in the study, ”COVID-19 has changed how we look at the future. We started questioning and challenging everything. The traditional ways of planning are outdated. We sense every hour, every day, every week and react to it.” The urgent question facing CEOs today is this, “What will it take to be essential?” Most CEOs emphasize that they have to focus on their edge as a business, what makes them different, and how they would deliver the most value to their customers, employees, community, and investors.

Cloud SAP Migration Made Easy Any to Any

Posted by Linh Nguyen on Dec 13, 2017 9:08:20 PM

 

We Found an Easier Way than the Easiest

Last year we wrote about The Easiest Migration to SAP on AWS, now we hate to say it, but we were wrong!  After 17 years of doing SAP Migrations, now we found an EASIER way and we can go from any platform to any cloud and vice-versa!  Why not? Even SAP is moving its own systems to a public cloud.

IT-Conductor is about IT Process Automation, so we get excited about automation technologies.  SAP OS DB Migration has always been a pain, and will probably be as long as customers run business critical applications on it and have complex infrastructures.  Since the early 2000's we have worked very complex migrations for SAP, SUN, IBM, and many large global customers and just when the tools and process get easier there comes new challenges of going to the cloud.  There are so many cloud platforms today including SAP, AWS, VMware, Azure, GCP, IBM Softlayer, CenturyLink, and many more that supports SAP. The question becomes how do we standardize the way we migrate there in an automated fashion, without having to deal with all the technical hurdles of each cloud, as well as have options to go back if we don't like the new platform.  We'll admit, we're agnostic, we want solutions to work with everything, Any-to-Any!
