Enterprises undergoing digital transformations usually look for avenues to modernize, innovate, and adapt their application landscapes to the latest technology available on the huge public cloud platforms like AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. The complex business requirements that trigger discussions on migrating workloads to the cloud are:

  • Moving attention from underlying infrastructure and platforms to application innovation.
  • Uneven availability, scalability, and agility of cloud resources as compared with on-premises deployments.
  • Alternative solutions to replace end-of-life hardware/software.
  • Need for hybrid architecture to use multiple services that are not available on-premises.
  • Effective compliance and security management.
