Cloud Migration: Are You Cloud Ready?

A cloud adoption assessment will help your enterprise determine whether the organization is ready for cloud, type of cloud, cost estimate and the areas that need the most attention to successfully adopt cloud.

The result of the assessment will provide your organization with pros and cons to support a business case – cloud migration.

are you cloud ready?
 

Cultural readiness

An important measure while considering a migration to the cloud is the acceptance of cloud among your organization’s staff. Due to the proliferation of cloud use in our everyday lives, personally and in business, acceptance generally has increased.

‘Cloud’ and ‘digital’ have become widely used words, but mean different things to different people. Do your stakeholder priorities align with the benefits your project should bring?
 

Needs assessment

Mapping the needs and wants of directors, heads of service and other stakeholders into an assessment (in relation to cloud) enables you to plan exemplars and use cases that are the best fit for cloud. Showing value early is a great way for organizations to buy into the benefits and so identifying services which are ‘quick wins’ will certainly help your cause.

This process also identifies the areas of the organization that don’t see the relevance of cloud.

Disseminate the digital vision clearly to heads of service and other stakeholders. In parallel, seek to understand their goals and priorities and relate those to characteristics of cloud
 

Technical readiness

A detailed assessment of the business’ ICT landscape should be carried out because your ICT landscape would be a mix of applications, operating systems and hardware versions. A methodical approach and a mix of the right tools and expertise is required to assess the ICT estate

The assessment should look into the networks, servers and applications against a range of cloud options to identify incompatibilities and other gaps which will need to be remedied if the systems are migration candidates

Before thinking about adopting cloud, legacy systems should also be checked to ensure they will work effectively with your chosen cloud provider. If it is discovered too late that they are not compatible, the implications on cost and time could be dramatic.
 

Budgetary readiness

Cloud is a rental model. This could be a change in the way your organization funds projects, these rental commitments must be understood by finance directors. For cloud adoption to succeed long term, it must be able to demonstrate an improvement in cost control and financial forecasting.

A comparison of the enterprise’s current ICT spending alongside the projected cloud deployment and service expense can give the business insights on the most cost-beneficial plan.

Transformational projects are investments, there must be acceptance of the necessity for investing to save and investing to focus on the organizational mission.
 

Resource readiness

Can you realistically achieve your goals on time, using your existing resources?

Understanding your current commitments is key to knowing if you can also balance the demands of cloud migration project. If there is a time pressure it is unlikely that internal teams will succeed in balancing business-as-usual commitments against the burden of cloud-related training, planning and execution.  

Choosing a credible and reliable service provider can help you in this situation and add value to the organization.

The cloud readiness assessment is as much about philosophical readiness as much as system readiness. Open minds to cloud technology, and you open up possibilities.

What is Serverless Computing?

Build Apps faster with Serverless Computing

Don’t Waste your time on maintaining servers

Serverless computing allows you to focus your efforts on business because the infrastructure you need to run and scale your apps is managed for you.

 

What is Serverless Computing?

Serverless computing is a cloud computing execution model in which the cloud provider dynamically manages the allocation of machine resource. Serverless computing is steered by the reaction to triggers and events happening in near-real-time–in the cloud. The code written by a developer is executed and only the precise amount of computing resources are taken to complete the task, no more, no less.

Infrastructure has always been an issue for developers. With Serverless computing they can circumvent administrative tasks and focus on business logic

  • Benefit from a fully managed service

 

Escape the burden of server maintenance. Avoid administrative tasks and focus on business logic. With serverless architecture, you simply deploy your code and it runs with high availability.

 

  • Scale flexibly

 

Serverless compute can handle tens of thousands of concurrent functions almost instantly (within seconds), to match any workload and without requiring scale configuration—it reacts to events and triggers in near-real time.

 

  • Only pay for resources you use

 

With serverless architecture, you only pay for the time your code is running. Serverless computing is event-driven and resources are allocated as soon as they are triggered by an event. You are only charged for the time and resources it takes to execute your code—through sub-second billing.

 

  • Enhance developer productivity

 

Leverage features such as local debugging in Visual Studio, visual debug history, deployment slots and more. To help developers maximize their efficiency, Microsoft serverless platform goes a step beyond abstracting server infrastructures to provide prolific features.

  • Seamless Connections

Fabricate modern apps by stitching together valuable and complementary functionality from various sources. Easily interact with a range of Azure functions, external services and logic apps to exploit on more than 100 connectors to Microsoft and third-party services.

 

 

  • Develop Intelligent Apps

 

Integrate intelligence into your apps with ease. With Azure, built-in intelligence is within the reach of all app developers. Enable your serverless code or logic to use Machine Learning and Cognitive Services.

Serverless computing is more cost-effective than purchasing the servers with required configurations
