Executive summary



The nub of the business issue we spotlight here is that cloud migration is often recommended simplistically, almost as a fashion option, with implied promises of ultimate agility, elastic capabilities without limits and low cost; but the reality is often different. Cloud provides a wide choice of platforms, some with innovative and attractive characteristics, but three truths remain important: 
• Workloads must run on the most appropriate platform for satisfying the business need, with a written business case justification. 
• The choice of appropriate platform  must be a fact-based, not a fashionbased, decision. 
• If you change the platform for existing workloads, regardless of the economics of the destination platform, the economics of the journey matter.
