Migrations of existing enterprise applications to the cloud can be complex. There are no migration methodologies or magic bullets that enable a simple lift and shift or automated migration. Typical migration projects take a great deal of discovery work, re-architecture, and refactoring. In this session, we will share known challenges and considerations that must be accounted for when designing, planning, and executing a migration. Topics will include: scale-out and distributed architectures, geographic dispersion, leveraging existing cloud services, and logging & monitoring. In addition, this session will address how in-depth discovery efforts can be paired with configuration management, automation, and source control to minimize the risk of future technical debt. Finally, we’ll cover the business and technical factors the affect the complexity of application refactoring.
