4 steps to a successful cloud migration


Digital transformation and migration to the cloud are top priorities for a lot of enterprises. At Google Cloud, we’re working hard to make this journey easier. For example, we recently launched Migrate for Compute Engine and Migrate for Anthos to simplify cloud migration and modernization. These services have helped customers like Cardinal Health perform successful, large-scale migrations to GCP
But we understand that the migration journey can be daunting. To make things easier, we developed a whitepaper on application migration featuring investigative processes and advice to help you design an effective migration and modernization strategy. This guide outlines the four basic steps you need to follow to migrate successfully and efficiently:  
  1. Build an inventory of your applications and infrastructure: Understanding how many items, such as applications and hardware appliances, exist in your current environment is an important first step.
  2. Categorize your applications: Analyze the characteristics of all of your applications and evaluate them across two dimensions: migration to cloud, and modernization.
  3. Decide whether or not to migrate an application to the cloud: Not all applications should move to the cloud quite yet. The whitepaper lists the questions to ask to determine whether or not to migrate a given application.
  4. Pick your migration strategy: For the applications you decided to migrate, decide on your ideal strategy—pure lift and shift, containers, cloud managed services, or a combination thereof.
There’s a lot to consider when you start thinking about digital transformation, and every cloud modernization project has its nuances and unique considerations. The secret to success is understanding the advantages and disadvantages of the options at your disposal, and weighing them against what you want to transform and why. To learn how to migrate and modernize your applications with Google Cloud, download this whitepaper.
