Planning of your migration process to Oracle Cloud
Moving to the Cloud is comparable in many ways with moving to a new data-center. It is something that many IT organizations have tried before. But it is also different, because the Cloud is more than just infrastructure. There are also new processes, new competencies and new possibilities. To ensure a smooth transfer, it can often pay to invest in careful planning. The organizations should consider all possibilities – both good and bad. The most common problems with migrations to the Cloud are unexpected costs, interconnection problems, holes in security and unexpected reprogramming of applications. These problems can cause unexpected obstacles, cause significant delays and end up costing you much more than you originally planned.
Oracle’s latest Pulse-investigation shows that a remarkably large proportion (33 percent) of the businesses felt that external expertise would have been advantageous with IaaS migrations. When they were asked what they would have done differently, if they started with their IaaS setup today, the businesses agreed that they wanted to “work together with external advisors, so they could understand the technology better.”
because of unexpected challenges in the migration process, many businesses choose to work together with a Cloud migration partner, for example Basecare.
