Cloud Data migrations are complex and challenging, since they are generally an extensive legacy migration involving structured, unstructured, sensitive, IOT data, big data and business glossaries dataset and Clients don’t want customers exposed to a broken production application or processes due to the migration. They also obfuscate the need for more technology specialists, both during and after the migration. While Cloud solves some problems, it also creates new levels of complexity. Subject matter experts, database virtualization, significant testing and mock releases with staff and partners have to all come together for success.
What complicates things at some organizations even further is the fact that the single Cloud vendor approach is becoming a multi-cloud computing vendor approach where lock-in to a single vendor is minimized. Some even want/require the clouds to be interoperable. These technology investments in Hybrid-Cloud or Multi-Cloud add a lot of complexity and risk as well, if critical workloads are on a single cloud provider. But it is critical to know all your Legacy Data and information assets to achieve that success. That’s the view the Orion EIIG provides through the Data Fabric, for Cloud migrations to be successful.
