Migrating to the cloud is not new and it has been proven to be effective in this digital world. Regardless of the industry or the volume of data, cloud computing is a key milestone in the digital transformation journey. This interesting news came to us from Tech Wire Asia in their article, “A quick cloud computing catchup for business owners.”

For some industries, the move to the cloud has presented challenges and hurdles because of legacy applications that were built using archaic frameworks and hosted on infrastructure designed for previous generations of systems. Abandoning those applications was not always an option due to the volume and history of data.

The good and bad news is cloud computing today isn’t what it was just a few years ago. It has evolved and become more comprehensive but also more advanced in technology, which results in these types of challenges. It has never been more important for business leaders to understand their options and the risks.
