In the last ten years, cloud computing, adoption, and migration have transitioned from being just places for storage to becoming indispensable strategy for businesses to accelerate service delivery with high efficiency and at a lower cost. There are businesses that have been built exclusively for the cloud. These born-in-the-cloud companies (think Airbnb, Netflix, and Spotify) enjoy unparalleled scalability, connectivity, speed, and flexibility. They have become iconic symbols of cloud success. However, cloud adoption is not just the forte of internet or customer-facing companies. Businesses with on-premises infrastructures across professional services, finance, retail, hi-tech, healthcare, manufacturing, and telecom are also aggressively adopting the cloud. “Cloud shift highlights the appeal of greater flexibility and agility, which is perceived as a benefit of on-demand capacity and pay-as-you-go pricing in cloud”, says Michael Warrilow1 , Research VP at Gartner. The possibility that traditional, on-premises infrastructure could become obsolete, along with huge, recurring licensing costs and capacity constraints are also hastening cloud adoption and migration. Official estimates2 from leading research analysts confirm that cloud adoption and services are growing significantly across industries. In this disruptive, cloud-enabled environment, businesses with on-premises, legacy infrastructures simply cannot afford to lag behind.
