Lessons Learned and Sleep Lost: Moving to the cloud the right way
The cloud has seen a HUGE amount of uptake from companies struggling to find ways to stay productive. "In-Premises" environments have transitioned to less active usage or have been slated for migration to cloud based alternatives.
As a consultant, this has given me the opportunity to work with a lot of customers lately to work on these changes and I have learned a few lessons.
- Transitioning to the cloud quickly was a necessity for many, but there are bunch of skipped steps that need to be looked a, starting with Governance.
- If your On-premises systems are still active, you may want to spend even MORE time monitoring them.
- The Cloud is not less secure, bit it is different.
