AWS Implementation Challenges and Benefits

Cloud is about how you do computing, not where you do computing. – Paul Maritz

If we take a look at the recent development in cloud computing, we can easily say that the change has been huge. Businesses have embraced the technology with arms wide open.

Amazon AWS has been one of the biggest players in this market, with net revenue of more than $ 17450 million US in the year 2017 alone. Looking at these statistics it is quite evident that businesses have realized how important AWS can prove to be for them.

As astounding as these statistics might sound, the fact of the matter is that migration to AWS cloud brings with it its own set of challenges. What are those challenges? We will be discussing that first, and then shall shed light on the major benefits businesses can reap by implementing AWS.

So, let us begin with the challenges –

  1. Staying in sync with business objectives

When migrating to AWS, the first challenge a business has to face is to make sure that the new AWS apps are in sync with the business objectives.

In order for this to happen, you need to, first of all, identify the measurable KPIs and then evaluate the apps in accordance with them. This will help you evaluate the ROI and will further help you take the necessary action to make AWS migration successful.

  1. On-boarding staff

The most important aspect of AWS migration is the acceptance by the end users. After all, they are the ones who will be using the technology to work.

Like with everything else, it is hard to bring change. In order to make sure that your team is able to accept the technology, you need to put the migration in a positive light. Make them understand the benefits this new technology will bring not just for the business, but for simplifying their work life as well because without smooth on-boarding you will not be able to make AWS migration successful.

  1. Smooth migration

Migrating your entire business data and information to an altogether new technology can prove to be a huge roadblock to progress. This is where choosing the right partner who has the required experience and knows how to carry out smooth migration becomes the key.

You cannot just go with any other service provider. Therefore, as a business owner, you need to evaluate the various service options out there and then choose the one that has the experience and expertise to carry out the job smoothly.

  1. Data security

In today’s time, data is the biggest asset for a business. And, you cannot take the security of your data lightly. A slight carelessness in handling the data during the migration process could mean you end up losing more than you could have ever expected to gain through AWS migration.

To prevent this from happening, you need to figure out a few things – what type of data should you store in the cloud? How will the data be managed? At what location will the data be stored? All these questions become crucial when it comes to data security. Get all these answers from the service provider before you carry out the AWS migration to have the peace of mind.

  1. Cost-effectiveness

Once you will evaluate all the above-mentioned points, you can easily predict the ROI and cost-effectiveness of AWS migration, which is going to be the most important factor in your decision.

After all, a smart business move is the one that brings positive ROI. Whether it is the migration to a new technology or hiring a new employee, unless you are able to make some gain for your business from it, it won’t be considered as a good decision.

Amidst all these challenges, the good thing is that migrating to the cloud will empower your business with the latest technology. Not only will this boost up the speed of carrying out various processes, but it will also make sure that your team is able to perform more efficiently.

And, that’s what matters in the end!
