These are four steps that can be followed for companies to have a successful migration to this platform:

Analyze the needs of the organization: Before starting the migration to the Cloud, it is important to understand the organization, its current situation and why it is going to move to a digital environment. The process is gradual and it is not necessary to move all processes to digital, but it depends a lot on the objectives set.

Planning is key: At this point, you already have an analysis and you can start defining the strategy. It is important to decide what to migrate and how to migrate. In addition, the most suitable type of Cloud for each company must be known, according to its needs and characteristics.

Migrate and start operations: The migration should start once an in-depth analysis of the organization’s situation has been carried out and a strategy has been defined. The process does not end after completing the migration to the Cloud, but the company’s processes must be monitored to verify that the objectives set before the transfer are being met.

Continuous improvement: The organization’s services must be improved and optimized after moving to the digital environment of the Cloud. For this, not only constant monitoring is needed, but the application of new strategies can be initiated.

In reality, the only guarantee of the success of the migration of companies to the Cloud and its virtual environment is the strategy and good management of the resources available at the time of starting the process.

Pierre Tillit, general manager of Business IT, indicated that he considers it important that organizations understand that “applying technology requires a deep analysis and a well thought out strategy. The Cloud is very powerful and can offer multiple benefits, but if it is not applied in the right way, it can harm the organization”
