Results of a study conducted by Dimensional Research show some troubling numbers. Most of those surveyed in the report shared that initial cloud migration projects were more difficult than expected, with some failing entirely.
In fact, nearly 75 percent of participants stated migration projects are taking a year or longer, and a majority reported migration projects are running late and over budget. Despite these troubles, 96 percent of participants are currently migrating applications to the cloud. If cloud-related projects are increasingly popular and often a complicated process, how can an enterprise or company overcome the hurdles for a faster, smoother and safer migration?
