Published: December 1, 2022

The simple yet critical question that infrastructure and operations leaders ask themselves is how to deliver efficient infrastructure services while managing cost and risk as a part of larger digital transformation initiatives. Even though there are different ways to address this question, the most sensible way is to deliver standardized, modernized, and repeatable infrastructure in a hyper-scale public cloud environment. Hyperscale public cloud infrastructure offers improved methods for increasing the repeatability of infrastructure provisioning as IaaS with attributes such as; immutability, ephemerality, and idempotency.

However, organizations face different challenges while embracing a cloud-native architecture, limiting the extent of cloud migration and cloud modernization. Factors include the size of enterprise applications, customization rate, cloud security, and availability of skills. There isn't a one-size approach to dealing with these challenges. This report looks into the possibilities of incorporating a multitude of options, in addition to those mentioned earlier, to comprehend a successful cloud migration strategy.

Businesses can choose the right migration strategies and partners by understanding the barriers in cloud services mentioned in the Gartner® research/analysis.
