In an age of advanced technology, cut-throat competition, and quick success, companies are looking at solutions that will be an omnipotent force in maintaining their existence.

And in that sense, technologies such as the ‘cloud’ do just the things we want and which we cannot describe verbally. How?

This single technology can serve multiple business goals with a suite of advantages and services.

Your business may be driven by the need for:

  • Increased productivity
  • A consolidated and reliant data center
  • The flexibility to unify work elements and business operations after a merger or acquisition
  • Enhancing infrastructure capacity
  • Cutting down on operational costs and hardware
  • Increasing existing business operations TAT and much more..

But while there are many providers out there, how do you decide which one to approach? And how will you know which ones move and operate the way you want them to?

World tech giants are ever-ready with their fine-tuned cloud solutions to meet whatever your need, your business size and the reach of operations.

One such effective service is Amazon Web Services, fondly known as AWS!

Migrating to an AWS Cloud, with more than 90 services including computing, data analytics, storage, databases, continuous integration, and artificial intelligence has written the success stories of many businesses.

But before understanding the AWS Cloud Migration, let’s understand how companies using the cloud are driven to cloud adoption.

AWS Cloud Migration Process

In an emerging trend, large enterprises are choosing cloud migration as a business transformation drive. The common migration pattern encompasses five phases:

Phase 1: Creating the Migration Blueprint Along the Business Framework

In this phase, users need to outline clear-cut business objectives and accordingly analyze the types of benefits that they will receive. This begins with creating some starter experience and designing a project for migration. The process also entails taking into account existing infrastructure and applications with their limitations.

Phase 2: Constructing a Migration Plan Upon Understanding of Interrelation Between Apps

Users need to understand how their IT framework works & how their apps are interconnected and decide a migration strategy accordingly to meet each business case. Considering the aforementioned and building a migration plan accordingly puts users in a better position throughout the migration process.

Phase 3 & 4: Application-wise Designing, Migration and Validating Application

While it is important to understand your entire IT portfolio, it is important to focus on individual applications as well. Users need to design, migrate and validate each application. AWS designs migrate and validate each application according to AWS six common application strategies. Once users are sure of migrating a few applications critical to business and have a compact migration plan, they can kickstart the migration process and scale their cloud operations.

Phase 5: Cloud Operations

Once the applications have been migrated to the cloud, users can conduct regular business operations on a new foundation and incorporate innovation into the operating model. Users get to work with an operating model that is constantly evolving as they scale business operations on the cloud.

Every technology’s successful implementation and incorporation depends on the kind of tools used and AWS has a suite of proven tools that are tailored to get the migration process done just right!
