Then find your goals...
STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 805 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Cloud Migration improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 805 standard requirements:
- Monitoring and Management. The monitoring and management of the application running in the cloud service must be considered. Can in-house tools still be used, or is it necessary to adapt to new monitoring and management facilities supplied by the cloud service?
- There are also data governance, privacy and legal issues that may be associated with ventures into the cloud. who owns the data and how do they assure that the data is not made available to nascent third parties who have no business accessing it?
- Can your application be packaged into a virtual machine (vm) instance and run on cloud infrastructure or does it need specialized hardware and/or special access to hardware that the aws cloud cannot provide?
- What is the experience level of the organizations IT professionals, including their ability to negotiate and engage in technical discussions in a foreign language (particularly for non English speakers)?
- Business Considerations. Business considerations include the overall organizational readiness for using cloud computing. Is the application owner willing and comfortable with a cloud platform?
- Other technical choices depend on the security measures applied by the cloud provider to the cloud service. Does the provider implement strong user authentication techniques for the service?
- How do you prove to a client or an auditor that adequate security measures are in place, now that this is not only your problem, but a shared responsibility between you and a cloud provider?
- Consider what happens if the receiving application is migrated to a cloud service, and the ERP application remains in-house. What protocols do these applications use to talk to each other?
- How can you verify that the virtualization platform or cloud management software running on the systems you use, which you did not install and do not control, does not contain malware?
- Identity theft could also be an inside job. Employees at big companies that host e-mail services have physical access to e-mail accounts. How do you know nobodys reading it?
