Most CIOs today are either considering moving to or are already in the process of migrating to the cloud, whether it’s public, private or a hybrid combination. But in order to strategically migrate to any cloud solution, applications and supporting data environments and services must be clearly defined.
With the availability of cheap storage and the explosion of new data being created every day, companies are struggling with truly understanding their data environments. It’s not that they can’t find the right data, but they often THINK they have the right data when they actually don’t, as the real data may exist in multiple systems and only partially accurate as it relates to some other data or process. This is why the popularity of Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) practices has grown so dramatically, as the need to manage the flow of information system’s data across an organization is mounting in importance.
Up until a few years ago, most CIOs were content to let the data keep growing and buy more storage if necessary. But now with the push towards the cloud, CIOs are forced to bundle applications, data and services, as well as plan migrations. But in order to accomplish this, an organization’s data environment must be clearly defined, so that applications and services don’t break when the migrations occur.
While CIOs today are all in with the cloud, most do not know where to start or what to consider when defining their data environments.
