Plan to Win: What to Measure to Ensure a Successful Cloud Migration



Preparation is key to the success a football team has on the pitch. Time and effort is dedicated to planning what happens before a game with constant adjustments during it while each team member must be prepared to play their part. Migrating to the Cloud is similar, and requires preparation before, during and after the move.

There are critical insights you must know at each step—from how your app performance improved (or didn’t), to what the user experience looks like before, during and after the move. Knowing the right questions to ask—and having the right insight —is essential to succeed in your cloud migration.

No matter what stage of your cloud migration journey or what type of migration path you’re on—whether it’s “lift and shift” or completely re-architecting—there will be valuable insights you can put to use to get your cloud ready.

Join Kevin Downs, Sr. Technical Account Manager at New Relic, for a technical discussion of everything you need to monitor, measure and validate for a successful cloud migration including how to:

  • Establish application baselines and benchmark existing performance

  • Detect errors or possible issues before, during, and after your migration

  • Compare on-prem performance to cloud performance to validate success
