Re: Benefits should outweigh the challenges
Yes but even well-planned migrations can still have issues I have been there before!  Conflicts arise sometimes out of thin air and issues that were never seen in testing can materialize days after the migration. If the nature of software development!

@k14ym yes, better to plan careflly in advance than to have to patch things up afterwards.

Re: Benefits should outweigh the challenges
It should seem a necessity for many to employ a contractor to help with the migrations especially since as noted "most successful workload migrations require different clouds." Getting security issues and those pesky performance and latency issues remedied as quickly and efficiently as possible should be a result of a good pairing.

Re: Benefits should outweigh the challenges
Ariella it is the healthiest way to view the relationship--I have seen so many people feel threatened by contractors rather than embrace them as teachers.

Re: Benefits should outweigh the challenges
@Maryam Absolutely, that's why some of the people talk about partnering with them. They really view it as a cooperative effort that will help advance their business.

Re: Benefits should outweigh the challenges
Exactly hopefully with training and shadowing a contractor, there will be a learning experience for employees who eventually will be able to do the follow-up!  Contractors shouldn't be looked as competition but rather as educators with expertise.

@Maryam yes, otherwise the business may find itself in the situation of homeowners who try to fix their plumbing themselves and cause a flood. With so much depending on managing yoru data, you don't want to risk a loss.

Re: Benefits should outweigh the challenges
Ariella very true sometimes its better to get experts to manage the transition the first time it can avoid alot of mishaps and provide a learning oppotunity for the inhouse staff.

Re: Benefits should outweigh the challenges
I've intreviewed people from more than one company who partner with services that help them through that cloud transition. It's important to do it right to not lose data or productivity while working through the change in systems.

Re: Benefits should outweigh the challenges
Though the security concerns are indeed there, companies are finding that the cloud firms often have better security than companies can provide on their own. Security had kept financial services firms and health care providers from being early cloud adopters, but they are moving there now.
