Together with 451’s Melanie Posey, TDS experts Andy Smith and Eric Kraieski will illuminate today’s broad trends in cloud migration, discuss 451’s latest research on the factors driving workloads to the cloud and discuss real-world challenges standing in the way of successful cloud adoption. Attendees will also be briefed on TDS’ proven formula for cloud migration, which is directly geared toward today’s challenges.
The two-tiered cloud migration approach
“The 451 research showed that 58% of respondents are moving to a hybrid IT strategy. But executing a successful cloud migration today can be tough,” said Eric Kraieski of TDS. “If an enterprise starts down the wrong path, or even simply migrates services in the wrong order, it could easily sink the whole project. Fortunately, while getting it right is critical, the formula itself doesn’t have to be complicated.”
In the webinar Posey, Kraieski and Smith will present a proven two-tiered approach involving moving mobile workloads first and then tackling the complex applications that require greater planning and coordination.
The right tools in hand
Recognizing that the right approach is only half the equation, TDS will also share insights on the tools it takes to orchestrate a migration strategy and will showcase a new software platform built specially to solve these issues. “The migration of complex apps in particular causes many projects to stumble and lose momentum,” said TDS’ Smith. “In the webinar we’ll share insights not just on strategy but also on the tools it takes to successfully orchestrate a migration project.”

CIO & CTO’s find themselves trying to get out of a traditional data center due to underutilized resources, expensive contracts, and to reduce their IT costs
Having a multi-cloud strategy helps organizations better manage changing requirements no matter how unpredictable. 2020 certainly is proof that we all need to be ready for the unexpected. Here are five reasons why a multi-cloud strategy is critical today.
IT organizations need a platform built specifically for planning, managing, and executing migrations, recovery events, M&As and other transformation projects, end-to-end.
Making decisions using data that is pieced together through a combination of spreadsheets, data exports, and email messages doesn’t provide project teams with a comprehensive understanding of compliance, security and other business requirements. That’s why TDS enhanced its rules engine, making it easy to write simple scripts that apply business rules to data, ensuring that the results will be aligned with business goals.
We continue to evolve TransitionManager’s capabilities, focusing first on what problem we are trying to solve for the customer. For enterprise architects and cloud professionals, finding the right information and leveraging the variety of tools available to plan and manage IT transformation projects is challenging and complex.
