Five Key Questions to Ask Before Migrating to the Cloud

Originally posted to CloudPost,

By Sven Hammar, CEO, Apica System

Migrating applications to the cloud offers incredible opportunities that can make your business more versatile and efficient. Collaboration is often easier with the cloud, for example, and it can make disaster recovery a breeze.

However, the cloud isn’t necessarily the right choice for every application. Is your team thinking of shifting your application to a cloud-based model? Make sure to take the following considerations into account before making your move:

  1. Will the Cloud Be Compatible?

Before going any further, your company should first determine if the desired application can be moved to the cloud at all. The software itself may be inherently incompatible with cloud platforms, or may require specific hardware that limits vendors’ support. And while some apps are technically compatible, the software license may not allow cloud-based operation.

  1. Is the Cloud Cost-Effective?

Next, your company should weigh the pros and cons of migrating applications to the cloud versus changes in operational costs. Before migrating to the cloud, your business should identify a cloud solution that makes sense for the specific application. In most cases, the cloud is more cost-effective and efficient than running local servers, but sometimes servers make more sense. It’s important to fully understand the application’s pricing model so you don’t end up facing unexpected charges. Additionally, your business should shop around to find a vendor that offers the capabilities your applications require at a reasonable cost.
