Increasingly, organisations are opting to migrate applications and data to the cloud. Done well, cloud migrations can yield numerous benefits, including lower costs, greater flexibility and enhanced disaster recovery. Done poorly, cloud migrations can reduce performance and put information at risk.

Shifting from on-premise servers to the cloud saves money on infrastructure and staffing. The cloud offers greater scalability because consumers can easily add CPU and RAM, and increase the number of servers. Cloud providers offer disaster recovery services that help protect data from being lost.
But the cloud isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. Organisations may be subject to regulatory requirements that dictate where information can be stored. Or they may be reluctant to give up full control over platform security, network latency, and data visibility. Geography is also a consideration, as global organisations may find the cloud limiting in terms of bandwidth and access to content in certain locations.
Fortunately, a cloud migration isn’t an all-or-nothing proposition. Architecture refers to design structure; just as buildings vary by architecture, so does the cloud.
Two common architectural styles are the full cloud and the hybrid cloud:
* In the full cloud model, Business Objects and all associated dependencies (Central Management Server (CMS), File Repository Server (FRS), Auditor, reporting, etc.) are hosted in the cloud.
* In the hybrid cloud model, the location of Business Objects and dependencies is split between on-premise servers and the cloud.
Organisations should consider the impact of design choices before drawing up blueprints to migrate Business Objects to the cloud. Regardless of cloud architecture, BiTech Group using 360Suite solutions reduce costs and shorten timelines by up to 80%, ensuring a cheaper, faster, easier and more successful cloud migration.
