RiverMeadow Software is a technology driven services company specialising in the migration of workloads to both the public and private clouds.
Find out why using ‘Free’ migration tools might not be the right solution for you. As companies navigate through the adoption of Public Cloud, Private Cloud, Hybrid Cloud or Multi-Cloud, they are faced with numerous challenges and decisions. Which cloud should be adopted? What are the differing computing and cost models between clouds? Will the cloud really save my organization money?
“Lift and Shift” has proven a worthy approach for many companies who are looking for a fast, low risk way to move their workloads to the cloud. But what if you had an incremental option to lift and evolve your underlying infrastructure as part of your cloud journey?
As more and more businesses surge into the cloud as the foundation for digital transformation, the choice to migrate applications across multiple cloud-hosting environments might seem counterintuitive. Businesses are looking for ways to streamline their processes, alleviate infrastructure complexities, avoid information leakage and reduce costs in order to maximise efficiencies.
Digital transformation is big business. By 2020, 83% of enterprise workloads will be in the cloud. Meanwhile, on-premise workloads are predicted to shrink from 37% today to 27% of all workloads. Unquestionably, the decision to embrace cloud is no longer a matter of debate. As each industry becomes increasingly technological, cloud has evolved from being a market disruptor to a prerequisite for business survival.
It’s a turbulent time for businesses today. As technology continues to permeate every part of our lives, organisations flock to the cloud in their droves in an effort to cut costs, stay nimble and ensure future survival. A deluge of new challenges have subsequently emerged out of abandoning the status quo in favor of technologies that are defining a new business era.

Given the much-touted benefits of moving to the Cloud such as scalability, reliability, lower costs and security, businesses are under increasing pressure to fully leverage its advantages. With average cost savings reported at 20-30%, any delay in getting to the Cloud could cost your business dearly, both in terms of operational agility and profitability.
In this blog we’ve taken a look at the potential cost implications of delaying a migration to the Cloud and whether it is really necessary to wait until the Portfolio Planning and Discovery phase is complete before embarking on the move.
