Once a thoroughly considered plan aligned to the business strategy is in place, it’s time to execute the migration.
Make the most of your chosen cloud provider. It is critical to find the right partner(s) to ensure your migrations are impeccably designed, prioritized, executed and evolved.
Industrialize the journey. Many companies look to partners such as Accenture to execute migrations with minimal disruptions. Automated tools like Accenture’s myNav and myWizard can be critical in ensuring your migration will succeed at pace.
Think security from day one. Security teams need to be intimately involved in a migration from the onset, defining platform-level and application-level controls, approving cloud architecture choices, and identifying the best candidates for native security automation.
Help your people adapt to the new. A cloud migration changes how the enterprise works. For the IT organization, employees will need to be reskilled to work with new tools and new platforms. Business users, too, may need to adapt to the new systems and services available to them in the cloud.
