Executive Summary

The fact that faster cloud migration translates into superior business outcomes and faster ROI has been proven beyond a doubt. Digest this – 75% of cloud-first organizations say that within six months of moving their workloads to the cloud, they have been able to boost their competitive positions on the back of faster time to market. Mass migrators i.e. those who plan to move all or most of their applications to the cloud benefit more as compared to steady or cautious migrators who believe in going slow.  Either way, cloud adoption poses challenges and successful migration requires more than just a good understanding of the technology.
