Why Your Staff May Resist a Move to the Cloud

Deciding to move part of your business to the cloud is something you will have considered carefully before implementing. You will have gone through every aspect of how this change will help you, your business and your staff. There will have been meetings, planning sessions, budget calculations, a lot of time and effort put into the project, and now you're excited and eager to get going. It can, therefore, be very disappointing and frustrating to reach this stage of the process and find that when you tell your staff about the changes, they seem at best underwhelmed and quite possibly unhappy and even angry. Why are you getting this reaction, and what can you do about it?

You know it makes sense

When you have analyzed how a change in your business will affect your operations and profits, you are in possession of all the facts and know how beneficial this change will be. You've had time to digest every aspect and implication of how this new system will work and you know it will make significant improvements in your productivity and your ability to interact seamlessly with your clients. The problem is that your staff don't know any of these things! When you gather them together to tell them all about the fantastic new system they'll be using, they won't take in all the positives, but will hear words like "change" and "automation." This may cause them to start to worry about the disruption to their routines and even whether this means their job is in danger.

RISC Networks and Velostrata Team Up to Deliver End-to-End Cloud Journey Solution

Grazed from RISC Networks and Velostrata

RISC Networks and Velostrata announce joint integration to deliver the best-in-class cloud migration solution. Successful cloud migrations almost always require a collaborative effort. Cloud migration occurs through several different, but crucial, phases, and require an end-to-end solution which leverages the right software and partners from beginning to end.

RISC Networks ITOA Platform is implemented for the first and final phases of the migration process: discovery and migration planning to start, and migration validation after the move. You can't successfully move applications and related databases without gaining a complete picture of how everything is interconnected. The RISC Networks Platform allows you to discover all in-scope devices, automatically create application stacks and quickly see the level of effort (rscore) required to move a stack. Additionally, IT professionals can rationalize their applications, evaluate cost and resource estimates, and create a cloud migration plan within the platform. At this point, users (automatically) convert the Asset Report from the RISC Networks Portal into a Velostrata automation runbook. Through the implementation of the Velostrata runbook, users can automatically migrate their on-premises workloads and applications into the cloud based on the sequence and instance types (among other customer desired variables) defined in their runbook.

Bitnami, the leading provider of packaged applications for any platform, announced the availability of Bitnami Stacksmith, a tool that simplifies the migration of enterprise applications to the cloud by automating the manual tasks required to package, deploy and maintain software stacks for leading container and cloud platforms.

Bitnami is known for its automated end to end process of packaging and maintaining software for any platform. It publishes a catalog of over 120 open source applications and development stacks which get deployed over 1 million times a month across all platforms including leading cloud vendors like Amazon, Azure, Google and Oracle. Now, for the first time with Stacksmith, enterprises can leverage this powerful application automation technology and tooling to replatform their own applications from the datacenter to the cloud. With this simple SaaS solution, enterprise developers and operations teams now have a single tool to migrate and maintain custom in-house applications.

Stacksmith is designed to deliver a complete application migration experience for enterprises, in support of data center consolidation and digital transformation initiatives. It takes a running application in the traditional datacenter, repackages it, and delivers a running application in the public or private cloud. This is a significant departure from many other solutions in the market that simply build a container or virtual machine, or require teams of consultants.
