When you are thinking of moving your business to the cloud, where do you start? Do you look at what technology is out there, pick the one that sounds the best and then integrate it into your business? Or do you first look at your business and then integrate the technology?

Technology First, Plan Second

Often, companies employ the first approach. They have a look at all the new technologies and pick the one that looks and sounds the best. And then they try to figure out how to make the new technology work for their business.

What they don’t realise is that that new technology might not be what their business actually needs. It looks great. It sounds great. It has great features, but is it appropriate for solving your specific business needs?

Try It The Other Way Around

Instead of picking the shiniest toy, take the one that’s the best to play with. If you want to make sure you pick the technology that is best suited for your business needs, start with the business needs, not the technology.

The best way to approach the question of ‘What Technology Do I Need to Migrate My Business To The Cloud?’‘ is to start with a high level plan.

Develop a logical plan and architecture that outline how you are going to integrate cloud computing into your business functions, and what needs the technology is going to address. From that bigger picture, you can go into the details and better understand what features the technology must have to suit your business needs.
