I want to adopt Cloud but Where do I start?

Today, all that is related to the ICT world has heard of Cloud. No one questions whether or not the future or the benefits to an organization. But what is not yet clear is how to start the transition from IT models that currently have the organizations towards cloud models.
When you begin planning the transition to cloud computing models should always keep in mind the following:

Not be carried all at once to a cloud model, you can and should do so gradually . Each organization must decide its roadmap depending on the characteristics of your business, services provided, its strategic plan, etc..
Do not be all IT resources into a single deployment model. Moreover, most likely you will choose to have mixed deployment models – some resources in public cloud models and other private cloud models.
There are various service models and cloud application can be moved to a SaaS model (bring a self-developed application to a SaaS business application equivalent) or IaaS model (machines host the application in cloud environments).
Not everything has to be on cloud service models. Some resources will remain for a while in traditional models – for example business-critical applications don’t migrate until they gain experience within the organization in these models and generate enough confidence.


For the adoption of cloud models possible, should be a guideline in the process of provision and management of all IT resources (applications, platforms and infrastructure) that can be taken to a cloud service model.
When making the transition can take several methodologies. In essence all come to apply similar criteria. The important thing is to choose an already proven and apply.
The steps to follow:
Analyze what I have and what I have : What is my current situation?, what are the needs that I have to cover? What I have marked on my systems plan? What are the guidelines of the strategic plan of my company? All this will allow me to know what situation I am in, that I have set goals and commitments must fulfill.
Prioritize services to move Cloud solutions : prioritize when each organization should take into account the parameters that are most important to it depending on your business, goals, life cycle, etc.. The prioritization is based on global criteria related to the value it brings – benefits of migration to the cloud service (service quality, efficiency, etc..) – And the effort involved, resources required to make the migration (cost, time , etc.) -. The result will be a prioritization matrix to check the roadmap to follow in the transition.
Designing Roadmap : Once prioritized services provides an implementation strategy and planning migrations structured in short, medium and long term. Starting with those with a high value, low effort.
When available, the roadmap should assess IT provider which made hiring service models and deployment model. Important aspects to consider are the SLA’s, strength of the supplier, experience, etc..

With this in mind, I want to point out a few moments of forced cloud deployment models:

  • New projects
  • Technology refreshes cycles and obsolescence
  • Need test environments, pre-and / or training
  • Moments environments downsizing
  • Purchase of IT infrastructure (renovation, extensions)
  • Ultimately … all time that is being valued make a new investment
