Adopt a Smart Strategy for Cloud Migration
Cloud is likely an integral part of any modern application strategy. With many cloud options to choose from including IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS, it is critical to pick a cloud strategy that will support business needs first. Public, private, and proprietary cloud delivery models can further complicate choices. A wrong cloud move can mean potentially wasting thousands, if not millions of dollars and resources to vendor lock-in for years. Make smart and strategic cloud choices, steering clear of adopting cloud for cloud’s sake and instead make each cloud decision a business-first strategy. Maximize business value by leveraging current ERP investments and taking advantage of public cloud infrastructure options and adopting best-in-class cloud technologies to accelerate innovation.
“Lift and shift” IT infrastructure to the cloud
Moving a data center to the cloud can be the least complex and most cost-effective cloud migration strategy. While always in control, IaaS frees the enterprise from owning and maintaining computer hardware, which makes it easier to focus resources on business value, not operations.
Rimini Street provides vendor-agnostic planning and advice to help avoid the risk of lock-in to proprietary cloud models and to maximize business value by moving to proven, public cloud options.
Break free of ERP software vendor cloud roadmaps
Many CIOs are turning to cloud computing as a top strategy to reduce “lights-on” spend on ERP and improve IT’s ability to respond to today’s business priorities. Many Oracle and SAP licensees are realizing their single, “one-size-fits-all” ERP vendor may not be the right default choice for defining a cloud strategy. Enterprises don’t want to abandon years of ERP investment for a costly migration to less functionality in a cloud ERP suite. And they can’t wait to innovate at slow ERP speed. Best practices include seeking a vendor-agnostic, trusted partner who can help carefully select the best solutions among public infrastructure cloud options and hybrid–IT models.
Hybrid IT — A pragmatic cloud strategy
Deploy best-fit, cloud-based capabilities that can support business growth and create a competitive advantage when initiating a cloud strategy. These include SaaS “systems of engagement” technologies from new modern cloud vendors around core ERP systems of record. These best-in-class, hybrid IT solutions are generally more effective, less expensive, and faster to deploy than mega-vendor cloud-suites and full ERP cloud migrations.
