This is the second of a three-part series on how OpsRamp helps enterprise IT operations team manage the challenges of migrating to the cloud. Read part one here.

 

IT teams can build the migration blueprint and test different migration activities in the staging environment using the data collected and processes established during the pre-migration phase. The migration blueprint and related testing help identify gaps, requirements, and barriers to designing a successful migration, including:

  • In-depth analysis of the current environment
  • Change management processes to track execution and record output
  • Backup plans where necessary
  • Acceptance testing
  • Final sign off and approval

 

Here’s how OpsRamp can help optimize the migration phase of the cloud journey:

Digital Operations Command Center: IT teams can maintain contextual visibility and clear control for different migration processes with a single source of truth for hybrid infrastructure. Enterprises can measure business service availability and uptime during migration with intuitive service maps and dynamic network topology maps for their IT infrastructure.

Unified Service Intelligence: Custom monitoring templates for specialized workloads deliver real-time status updates and rapid detection of issues through intelligent alerting. Cloud architects can track the performance of entire business transactions and maintain service levels for workloads hosted on public cloud services with synthetic monitoring. Even though IT services or underlying infrastructure might change, IT teams can ensure optimal user experiences with the right performance insights across datacenter and hybrid cloud services.

Incident Remediation: Migrations rarely go off without a hitch. OpsQ, OpsRamp’s AIOps powered event management engine helps incident management teams proactively monitor potential service disruptions and identify root-cause alerts before, during and after migration.

 

 

Part 3 of this series will discuss the monitoring, management, and remediation of incidents in the cloud now that migration is complete.
