One of the most widely discussed topics in IT today is making the move to the Cloud. Most organizations that consider the journey into cloud computing seek gaining quick access to new services, platforms and toolsets – while stabilizing sprawling IT costs. Cloud may solve many objectives for the right workloads, but I’m hard pressed even as a cloud service provider - and most analysts would agree - to say that every single workload type should move to the cloud. So, what’s the CIO-level roadmap to determine which workloads move when?Executing a migration to the Cloud requires meticulous upfront planning and a thorough understanding of which workloads make sense to move (why), which cloud(s), how and when?

Gradually but surely, cloud infrastructure and services are penetrating deeper into the corporate IT environment. Cloud computing is changing everything from how businesses operate, to how they connect, to how they develop and deliver software and services. As organisations increase the amount of off-premise IT infrastructure they use, maintaining a high level of security and control over digital assets in the cloud becomes critical. Security has been a key concern hindering the cloud migration trend in recent years. According to a 2017 cloud security survey conducted by Crowd Research Partners, security topped the list of cloud inhibitors, with 33 per cent of respondents marking security risks as one of the biggest barriers to cloud adoption in their organisations. And while cloud security has many facets, one of the largest, most visible issues is the security and privacy of sensitive data.
