What is cloud migration and what are its benefits?

Cloud migration is the process of moving data, applications or other business elements to a cloud computing environment. Some clouds are public, whereby services are delivered over the public internet, and some clouds are private, consisting of secure cloud infrastructure available to only a specific organization. Organizations commonly use several clouds, both public and private, in a hybrid cloud environment that also includes on-premise computing assets.

Enterprises need to move to cloud to stay agile, flexible and competitive, but they need to do it without risking business disruption, security, compliance or performance. Migration may involve one or more clouds.
