There are various types of cloud migrations a business can perform. The most common is the transfer of data and applications from a local, on-premises server or data centre to the public cloud. However, a cloud migration could also entail moving data and applications from one cloud platform or provider to another which is known as cloud-to-cloud migration.
Benefits of cloud migration
The general benefit of any cloud migration is to host applications and data in the most effective IT environment possible. Based on factors such as cost, performance, and security.
Many businesses perform the migration of on-premises applications and data from their local data centre to public cloud infrastructure (such as Microsoft Azure) to take advantage of benefits. Such as self-service provisioning, greater redundancy, and a flexible pay-per-use model.

1. Cloud Discovery
One of the most important but also most overlooked steps in the migration process is cloud discovery. This phase is crucial in providing the information needed to shape the business case, set budgets, and to define the migration processes. It also plays a critical role in managing all the moving pieces as you moved onto a cloud platform.
