Data migration to the cloud – remedy for tech debt
Modernization of IT systems is often the result of a new business strategy, high costs of system maintenance and development, low level of security, efficiency, and often determination of technological debt. Determining the amount of technological debt and the risks associated with it are often part of risk management in the company and are included in the Business Continuity Plan. New digital strategies and digital energy transformations require highly scalable IT systems, data security and, accordingly, transfer of data to cloud. An element associated with digital transformation and its important stage is data migration to the cloud which stands for moving applications and data from one location (on-premise) to servers of the public cloud service provider (virtual servers). This is the beginning of digital transformation.
