How to find the best fit for cloud migration | Federal Times

Government officials and industry experts at an Oct. 24 federal cloud lunch event expressed strong confidence that a majority of IT applications would eventually be moved to the cloud, but noted that specific characteristics of those applications would ultimately determine whether they would fit into that majority or be left on premises.

Rather than security concerns, experts said that applications would be least likely to be moved to the cloud if they were single use or didn’t have any scalability needs.

“One of the things that I’ve told folks is, if you have a very consistent usage of data, the data in your environment is constant or constantly growing, you’re not going to get a massive amount of benefit or cost savings from the cloud,” said Craig Bowman, vice president of advanced solutions at Verizon.
