The Main Cloud Migration Challenges for Enterprises


The fundamental problem is that most enterprises underestimate the actual challenges — the “unknown unknowns,” so to speak. Migrating to thecloud services triggers a paradigm shift that affects large parts of the enterprise. Although non-trivial, the technical aspects are less of a challenge than the actual transformation within the enterprise. This includes a wide range of aspects. e.g. rules, norms, structure, procedures, and tools.

Cloud Governance and Cloud Management is largely uncharted territory for most enterprises and the reluctance of enterprises to rigorously governand manage cloud services generates significant security and financial risk. This includes vendor lock-in as a real danger for enterprises. Unfortunately, there are no one-size-fits-all blueprints that can be copied and pasted across enterprises.
