Debunking 3 Common Myths for Delaying Cloud Migration

July 13, 2022 | Comments(0) |

Often Communication Service Providers (CSPs) keep postponing the Cloud Migration process due to the 3 common misconceptions surrounding cloud migration. This post debunks these common misconceptions. 

#Myth-1 

Cloud Migration is Expensive 

Often CSPs postpone cloud migration by stating that it can be expensive, but the fact is that 90% of cloud migration expenses are OPEX (Operational Expenditure) and not CAPEX (Capital Expenditure). Thus, Cloud Migration works on a pay-as-use model and will not drill a hole in your pocket. 

#Myth-2 

Cloud Migration is Laborious and Painful 

Many CSPs have a bad experience with past network migration and co-relate it to the planned cloud migration and fear it can be painful. By relying on a seasoned cloud consulting organization like CloudThat you can always overcome the hurdles of cloud migration. 

#Myth-3 

We are yet to recover the true value of investments made on On-premises Infrastructure

Quite often the CSPs want to extract complete value from investments made in the on-premises infrastructure. Truly, recovering the expenditure made on on-premises hardware can never be recovered. Delaying the migration process by stating this reason will do more harm than bringing in productivity.  

To conclude, standing on the shoulders of a seasoned cloud consulting organization like CloudThat helps you mitigate any risks involved in initiating the cloud migration process.
