It’s understandable why companies are resistant to migrating to the cloud. Migration to the cloud is a complex initiative, especially for enterprise customers, which have a multitude of legacy extract, transform and load (ETL) tools and data lineages that can reach back 30 years or more.
Next Pathway's CEO Chetan Mathur gave recommendations to Forbes Technology Council for enterprises to move to the cloud rapidly and cost-effectively while mitigating all challenges.
"True cloud adoption and modernization cannot effectively take place unless the culture, organization and business undertake some degree of transformation.
Here are recommendations on how to move forward with your cloud migration, despite the roadblocks:
1. Recognize – and challenge – the resistance
2. Develop a plan
3. Start small
4. Leverage business units to drive adoption to the cloud
5. Work with a partner that can help ease your planned migration
Following these recommendations will help get you to the cloud quickly and cost-effectively, so your business can begin to realize its operational efficiencies and drive competitive strategies and enhanced customer experiences." - Chetan Mathur, CEO of Next Pathway, the Automated Cloud Migration company.
