A right Cloud strategy is not just to save cost but to create value by untethering IT from low value mundane tasks towards innovation and creating value through new capability , tools and services .

Since there are so many solutions and offerings it is important to select an architecture that allows customer to select the best of both worlds that also solves App migration and co-existence issues . Finally as architect It’s about understanding the pros and cons of the options and making the right architecture choices .

Where to begin?

Understanding your starting point is essential to planning and executing a successful application migration strategy. Take a comprehensive approach, including not only technical requirements, but also consideration of your business goals (both present and future), any critical timelines, and your own internal capabilities. Depending on your situation you might fall in any of the below categories as it relates to time-to-value. There is no one size fits all approach to migration but the key here is to know that whichever path you choose, there is always a way to build on top of that and continue to take more advantages of the cloud in an incremental fashion.
