Application migration best practices
Perform an assessment — the foundation or any migration project is an assessment of an enterprises application portfolio, including any legacy systems or applications, as well as an understanding of the ecosystem surrounding the applications, including the configurations of the physical and virtual servers, network topology, current support and data dependencies.
Involve the business as soon as possible – it’s critical to ensure that all the relevant business units take part in planning the migration and are aware of how it might affect them and existing business processes. Clear communication is key.
Map out a migration strategy — identify the business reasons and use cases for migrating to the cloud. Decide whether to migrate in phases or maybe start with the least business-critical workloads to gain experience and then move to more mission-critical applications.
