I’ve heard many times that if you’re not making mistakes, you’re not making progress. If that’s true, we’re seeing a lot of progress made this year in cloud migrations!

Here are the three errors that I see enterprises repeatedly committing.

Mistake 1: Moving the wrong apps for the wrong reasons to the cloud. Enterprises continue to pick as the ones they move first. These applications are often tightly coupled to the database and have other issues that are not easily fixed.

As a result, after they’re moved, they don’t work as expected and need major surgery to work correctly. That’s a bad way to start your cloud migration.
