Cloud Transformation

Cloud Transformation - The process of taking existing IT solutions, including data, applications, tools, etc. and moves them to cloud; the organization fundamentally continues to operate the same, just using cloud-based solutions and infrastructure.

Cloud transformation alone is not business transformation; organizations are not reinventing or rethinking their business model, strategy, or operations.

Shifting IT resources to cloud is sometimes called “cloud transformation,” but the reality is that it in most cases it is IT “lift and shift.”
