Abstract

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've heard about all the benefits of moving to the cloud. While the benefits are certainly legitimate, they aren't as easy to obtain as some literature would lead you to believe. Cloud migration efforts commonly fail to meet expectations. It would be nothing short of hubris to provide a "guaranteed" framework for a successful cloud migration. However, understanding the common causes of failed migrations can help you avoid a similar fate.
