Following on from the Cloud Platform Comparison poster we announced last week, we also have a companion Cloud Migration Poster. Many organisations struggle with the complexities of evaluating & executing different cloud migration strategies; our process looks at: drivers (business strategy, organisational readiness, stakeholders), constraints (risk & compliance, identity & security, data sovereignty, workload performance & scale, network, business value, and budget), enterprise architecture, solution architecture, service architecture, And how these all feed into the delivery plan which drives the service implementation, organisational change and legacy integration.
It also provides a set of Key Performance Indicators that can be used to measure the progress of the migration process, and contains a handy reference of Azure services. It's available for free under a Creative Commons license. We'd love to hear any feedback you have on this and any of our other posters.
