The Road to Data in the Cloud: A guide to navigating cloud migration

To help to instil confidence within organizations embarking on the cloud migration journey, Teradata’s report offers tips and guidance to simplify the process:

  1. Develop a phased approach - A considered migration plan consists of three parts: a risk analysis and mitigation assessment, a long-term strategy, and a phased implementation framework.
  2. Break down the economics - Understanding your current costs will help determine a migration model that offers cost efficiency.
  3. Decide on the cloud model to suit your business needs - Once you’ve created a business case and calculated the total cost of ownership, it’s time to evaluate which cloud would work best for you.
  4. Carefully pick your applications - Identify which applications to migrate, starting with smaller, non-mission-critical applications.
