Guiding the cloud application decision with the IBM Cloud Transformation Advisor
When moving an application to the cloud, there are two important considerations to keep in mind: the business purpose of the application, and the role that application plays in supporting business and IT strategies.
Examining your applications in this context will help you determine whether you should a) transition a particular app to a cloud environment, or b) re-architect the application itself to better serve your needs.
[This resource] introduces a methodology and a tool for determining how to approach these decisions, and provides best practices to help you optimise the benefits associated with cloud-based applications. Read on for considerations on transition versus transformation approaches, and find out how to weigh the benefits and the risks of both options.
