Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud migration 

Perspecta / About us / Partner exchange / AWS / AWS cloud migration

Organizations are always looking for ways to work faster and better. To get there, that means digitally transforming operations and IT and moving enterprise systems to the cloud. It also means converting enterprise IT spending to a consumption-based model. But getting there can be a bit tricky. While these new cloud-based enterprise systems include workload applications, they also require changes in the supporting compute, data storage and networking resources.

Changes are also required to the operations processes, tools and methodologies. Challenges often arise when organizations don’t factor in static and dynamic system dependencies.

Even after a successful migration, cloud-based system resources and organizational processes are often not optimized to fully gain the expected benefits of the cloud. Many cloud migrations stall, fail and result in the repatriation of workloads back to the data center due to these non-optimized cloud systems.
