Cloud Migration Strategy
Should I move to the Cloud?
The “Cloud” is just an easy way to say “far away servers that we don’t own.” To put it differently, the Cloud is software and services that run on the Internet.
You probably use several Cloud applications on your smartphone, such as email, messages, weather, etc. The Cloud is everywhere, including Oracle EPM and Analytics!
Migration to the Cloud Benefits:
- No CAPEX infrastructure investments
- Minimum IT resources
- No more spreadsheets
- Accelerated EPM and BI adoption
- Reduction in training costs from intuitive UI
- More focus on analytics vs. software support
- Automatic upgrades and patches
That said, we understand that some organizations are pulling back on their Cloud migration strategy. And some don’t want to move at all. We’re OK with that. We want what works best for you.
However, you may want to evaluate your Cloud migration strategy as upgrades approach. If you’re getting all new Windows laptops and your current version is not supported, that’s a fire drill!
A lift and shift, moving what you have now to the Cloud, can be done quickly. Or you may want to take a step back and lift and improve your processes at the same time.
