You can start the migration of mission critical applications with a Proof-of-Value (POV) pilot environment. With cloud, the advantages of a POV are two-fold: first, firstly, agility and speed of deployment (no equipment procurement lead time and cost, no borrowing or re-purposing of equipment) and, secondly, early engagement with the line-of-business.

The best way to start cloud application deployment is to begin with the simplest migrations. Workloads that have little or no dependency on other applications are ideal, for example databases and applications used in test and development. Continue reading “4 Steps to Application Deployment in the Cloud Steps 3 and 4 – Identifying Target Applications and Migration to the Cloud”
Once the classification of applications is completed, each application needs to be evaluated using the following criteria:
The first step towards building a successful roadmap to the cloud is to prepare an inventory of your current business applications. Once the inventory is complete, these applications may be classified into the following 7 broad categories. This helps with the prioritization of application workloads for migration to the cloud. It also helps you understand the time, effort, and cost involved in cloud migration for each application.
