While cloud migration is not new, operating in a completely cloud-native environment is still uncommon among North American businesses. This is because many organizations struggle to complete migration and optimize cloud management, causing them to miss out on true cloud enablement.
Levvel’s research analysts talked to hundreds of technology leaders to better understand the challenges of moving technology workloads to the cloud, and we found many companies struggle to overcome issues like security concerns, training and development costs, and implementation complexities. A lot of these roadblocks arise because of an incomplete understanding of and approach to cloud technology.
For example, while our research shows security concerns are the greatest barrier to full cloud adoption, today’s public cloud services offer cybersecurity capabilities far beyond those possible with on-premise systems, and delaying migration for fear of security breaches is actually counterproductive. Many companies are unaware of the regulatory advances within the public cloud, as government, healthcare, and privacy compliance features have grown substantially within the past few years.
This report provides knowledge on the benefits of a modern, public cloud and how cloud solutions can help the business achieve its goals. It highlights the main issues organizations face when deploying cloud environments and offers solutions to overcome these challenges. It also serves to help decision-makers fully understand the “why” and “how” of cloud migration before embarking on expensive/complicated initiatives and provides a guide to determine your migration and cloud management plan. Reading this report will make your cloud migration and optimization initiatives more secure, successful, and sustainable.
