8 Things to Consider When Moving an Enterprise System to the Cloud

By Chris Preimesberger  |  Posted 2016-05-02

Contrary to popular belief, not all companies have moved all, or even some, of their applications into cloud deployments. Some enterprises will never do this if it doesn't fit their business model. However, according to RightScale's 2015 State of the Cloud Survey, a whopping 93 percent of enterprises are adopting the cloud because it does fit their business model. This is because the cloud offers more data flexibility and accessibility, in addition to lowering costs and improving overall productivity, than on-site hardware systems. But the actual move to the cloud can be complex, time-consuming and expensive if not planned well. This is the case particularly for enterprises that must move huge amounts of data, including archives, from multiple systems. A little preparation and planning goes a long way to avoid unnecessary complications like these when moving to the cloud. To ensure the process is as smooth as possible, enterprises should consider the following steps. This eWEEK slide show uses our own reporting plus industry information from Geeman Yip, CEO of cloud enablement software provider BitTitan.
