The challenges of migrating to the Cloud

For several years now, the adoption of the Cloud has been a major digital transformation issue, requiring companies to deal with emerging technologies: 5G, IA, IoT, cybersecurity, etc. Following the pandemic, they have also had to speed up their adoption of digital tools in response to the problems caused by the crisis.

Companies are having to rethink their IT infrastructure and services to make them more agile and migrate to the Cloud. This future-turned-reality is also accompanied by an awareness of IT resource management – not only in financial terms, but also in terms of eco-responsibility. The Cloud allows better management of server costs and of data applications.

However, we are now seeing a shortage of advanced skills in this area. In addition to the technical scope of the cloud, there is a need to review operating methods too: more agility, better financial management of IT resources, digital sobriety, etc.

Migrating to the Cloud requires transferring the hosting of your applications to a Cloud solution (public, hybrid, private cloud or an AWS-type multicloud), while ensuring that data security and confidentiality issues are addressed. It is therefore vital to choose the most suitable migration strategy for your infrastructure: the application architecture may or may not remain the same, depending on the chosen strategy.
