Adoption of cloud computing has moved from being critical a few years ago to becoming a strategic necessity for enterprises to succeed in the current digital ecosystem. Today, they are relying on cloud-native services and apps to promote innovation, agility, and cost efficiency. While cloud offers an attractive route to achieve agility and scalability, moving workloads can be just as exhausting as pushing a boulder up a hill. According to Gartner, cloud migration offers unique challenges. Gartner’s Philip Dawson explains, “Cloud migration initiatives for enterprise applications are often thwarted by application size, high levels of customization and insufficient skills. Before migrating applications, I&O leaders must break down the barriers by modernizing infrastructure and applications into Cloudlike configurations.”

In cloud migrations, one of the very important steps is creation of landing zones. Landing Zones are essential as they provide a controlled, secure, and uniform environment for the deployment and management of cloud resources, promoting scalability, economic viability, and operational efficiency. Creating a landing zone is critical, but it also involves complexities when done manually.

Challenges in Traditional Cloud Migration and Landing Zone Setup

According to a recent survey conducted by Gartner, operational issues are identified as the primary barrier to achieving a successful cloud migration, with 70% of firms reporting this challenge. A staggering 50% of projects halt or fail completely during the migration process, making it a significant bottleneck in and of itself. Furthermore, according to an IDC survey, up to 30% of migration projects that use traditional manual migration methodologies fail to achieve their objectives, which can result in expensive delays, security flaws, and operational inefficiencies.

Traditional cloud migration, especially manual landing zone setup presents numerous challenges that can significantly impede the migration process and hinder the effective governance and management of cloud resources. Key obstacles include:

  • Lack of consistency and standardization across environments

  • Scalability limitations

  • Increased security and compliance risks

  • Resource misconfiguration and configuration drift

  • Documentation and knowledge transfer difficulties

  • Challenges in cost optimization

  • Resource-intensive monitoring and maintenance

  • Complexities in integrating with automated workflows

The above challenges, combined with other cloud migration issues such as creating secure configurations, optimal resource allocation, skill shortages, and operational inefficiencies, can derail the entire cloud migration process.

All of this significantly slows down the migration process, which results in lost opportunities and a delay in utilizing the cloud's transformative benefits.

To tackle these challenges, organizations are now turning to software-driven migration strategies that make use of hyper automation tools. Adopting a software-driven migration approach can help mitigate these challenges by automating and standardizing the deployment of a pre-configured, secure, and compliant landing zone in the cloud.

Why Software-Driven, Zero-code Migrations

A SaaS based, zero-code migration approach can help organizations overcome these challenges by automating and standardizing the deployment of a pre-configured, secure, and compliant landing zone in the cloud without requiring extensive coding or programming efforts. Many research studies shows that the organizations that adopt a zero-code migration strategy can reduce migration timelines significantly ranging from 20-50%, while minimizing errors and ensuring consistent, repeatable deployments.
