By now, most organizations are familiar with the benefits of a shift to the cloud, including scalability, agility, and cost-efficiency. Yet, the path to the cloud is not always clear and there are many lessons to be learned along the way.
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions are maturing, but limitations with functionality and integration prevent it from being the sole answer. Organizations often turn to Infrastructure–as-a-Service (IaaS) or Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions to meet company requirements.
The Lift & Shift (a.k.a. Move & Improve) cloud migration model involves moving the underlying infrastructure to run on virtual servers in the cloud, and replicating existing applications to run on the (public or private) cloud platform, without redesigning them.
