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.

Google vault will be supporting two new formats in the future, Gmail confidential mode emails & Jamboard files stored in Google Drive. Google Vault gives you a chance to retain, hold, search, and export data to support your organization’s retention and eDiscovery needs.

Zoom’s Work Transformation Summit on Jan. 19: Fresh Approaches for Moving Forward

These past two years have undoubtedly reshaped work. More specifically, these past two years — shuffling between remote, in-person, and hybrid work scenarios — reshaped what employees expect out of their jobs, how they want to work, and what the office means to them.  Organizations are challenged with making big decisions to meet those expectations, and those decisions will dramatically alter how they hire, manage their facilities, buy technology, and maintain productivity. Simply adjusting policies and retooling previous work models won’t do. It takes a comprehensive reimagining. To help organizations navigate this next phase of work, Zoom is hosting our  Work Transformation Summit  on Jan. 19, a free, half-day virtual event designed to provide you and your organization with meaningful strategies, creative approaches, and innovative solutions for redefining work.  Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from peers and industry experts on the importance of embracing technolo

Access well-known educational technology tools straight from Google Classroom.

  We're making it simpler for instructors to use popular EdTech products that are most effective for their class right in Google Classroom with a new seamless integration of single sign-on, assigning, and grading. With the help of this feature, teachers can find, assign, and grade interesting content for their classes, and both teachers and students can access their EdTech tools without needing to navigate to other websites or apps or go through a cumbersome login process that requires remembering numerous usernames and passwords. This offers a more simplified experience when using technology to affect learning, in addition to saving instructors and students time. We partnered with 15+ EdTech companies to build custom add-ons, including Kahoot!, Pear Deck, IXL, and Nearpod.  Admins :  In order for educators to use add-ons, district administrators must provide access to them.
