A practical guide to AWS Cloud migration
- Define your approach to cloud computing from business case to strategy and change management to technology.
- Build a solid foundation for your enterprise workloads on AWS by assessing and validating your application portfolio, and integrating your unique IT environment with solutions based on AWS cloud services.
- Design and optimize your business applications to be cloud-aware, taking direct advantage of the benefits of AWS services.
- Meet your internal and external compliance requirements by developing and implementing automated security policies and controls based on proven, validated designs.
Early planning, communication, and buy-in are essential. Understanding the forcing function (time, cost, and availability) is key and will be different for each organization. When defining the migration model, organizations must have a clear strategy, map out a realistic project timeline, and limit the number of variables and dependencies for transitioning on-premises applications to the cloud. Throughout the project, build momentum with key constituents with regular meetings to review progress and status of the migration project to keep people enthused, while also setting realistic expectations about the availability time frame.
