Whether you have chosen a cloud provider, or you are just looking, you need to begin carefully planning your workload migration. To get started, its important to assemble a team and carefully examine your workloads, users, access needs, security risks and, most importantly, budget. You also need to plan how you will scale your cloud solution as your business grows as well as set up an exit plan.

Migrating all or part of your business to the cloud will impact your organization in various ways, but you can minimize that impact by having a proper plan in place. Through hands-on exercises based on a case study, this course will take you through the planning stages for a variety of workloads.

You will leave this class with the tools and information you need to create a comprehensive migration plan for your company.
