Today, the cloud is experiencing exponential growth. While the vast majority of companies are using some form of cloud and taking advantage of cloud services, many others have not yet begun the journey to cloud and cloud services, such as infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), software as a service (SaaS), and disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS).
Other cloud services are gaining in popularity as companies embrace new technology trends. According to the 2020 State of the Cloud report, the fastest-growing cloud services are internet of things (IoT), container-as-a-service, and machine learning/artificial intelligence, with a growth rate of 17% to 21% between 2019 and 2020.
As organizations progress along their cloud journey, they need advice on how to best approach cloud services. Partnering with a technology company for cloud service migration helps a business better leverage its cloud capabilities.
Help for Those Already in the Cloud
Cloud service migration starts with assessing the current state of your cloud services. Keeping track of cloud resources and how they are performing is challenging, especially in today’s multicloud environments. A technology partner can help your company gain visibility into your cloud resources, including your cloud services, to determine if you are taking full advantage of their potential.
Reporting and analytics dashboards can be used to find ways to optimize your use of cloud services. These dashboards enable you to right-size and more effectively budget for your cloud services, as well as manage workloads more efficiently. Evaluating your current cloud services can also identify security and compliance gaps that need to be filled and areas where cloud resources could align more closely with business goals.
Cloud Service Transformation
Cloud service migration changes what you currently accomplish using the cloud by deploying a process that makes the most of your cloud capabilities. The right technology partner can provide insight into how to holistically transform the ways you approach and manage cloud services across the business. Transformation may include adopting a hybrid or multi-cloud strategy that gives your company more flexibility in the way you deploy cloud services.
A Multi-Tiered Approach to Cloud Service Migration
Cloud service migration requires several steps that evaluate the current state of cloud services and then change the way your company manages cloud resources. Cloud analytics allow your business to assess cloud usage patterns. Based on analytics, you can identify and eliminate waste so you can develop a smarter resource-allocation strategy.
Risk assessments can uncover security vulnerabilities. Using these findings, your company can implement cloud management that includes security monitoring and automation of data protection processes. Automation also helps optimize cloud services by balancing workloads and scheduling resources to enhance performance and create a more satisfying user experience.
