10 Ways Cloud Migration Will Fundamentally Change in 2024

Cloud migration has been accelerating over the last few years, but major transformations are still to come. As we look ahead to 2024, here are 10 key ways that cloud migration will fundamentally evolve.

  • AI Will Automate Migration Artificial intelligence will take over many of the manual, repetitive tasks involved in migration. AI can analyze configurations, emulate workloads, optimize placement, and even self-heal problems. This will allow companies to migrate faster and reduce errors.
  • Multi-Cloud Adoption Will Surge
    Rather than relying on a single provider, more companies will adopt multi-cloud strategies that use the best cloud for each workload. This prevents vendor lock-in and takes advantage of unique strengths of each platform.
  • Edge Computing Will Complement Cloud Edge computing brings data storage and processing closer to the source. As 5G spreads, edge solutions will become the norm for IoT devices and low-latency apps. Edge and cloud will work together.
  • Containers & Microservices Take Over Monolithic apps won’t cut it for cloud native environments. Containers and microservices will become the norm, allowing for greater portability and scalability. Cloud migration will mean refactoring apps.
  • Everything Over IP Will Accelerate Adoption As networks shift to IP and 5G, more legacy infrastructure will be ready for cloud migration. Networks will become faster and more agile. This removes a key barrier to widespread adoption.
  • Cloud Security Tools Will Mature Native security tools offered by cloud providers will improve dramatically. These tools will make cloud migration more secure by offering transparency, control, and mitigation of risks.
  • Cost Optimization Becomes Integrated Cloud cost management tools will become smarter and more integrated into migration planning. Optimizing costs of migrated apps will be built into the process earlier instead of being a later consideration.
  • Migration-as-a-Service Takes Off Specialized migration platform vendors will provide migration-as-a-service offerings to reduce complexity. With automation and best practices built in, these services simplify cloud migration.
  • Hybrid Cloud Becomes the Norm Rather than being all in on cloud, hybrid models that move some workloads to the cloud while keeping others on-premises will become the most common migration approach. This provides flexibility.
  • Migration Efforts Scale Up As the cloud skills gap closes and automated tools proliferate, companies will be able to migrate more applications and workloads faster. The scale of migration projects will accelerate.


Migration Is Key to Cloud Success:

The cloud landscape of 2024 will involve new challenges and opportunities when it comes to migration. Companies that leverage automation, develop cloud-native apps, and partner with skilled experts will adapt best. Migrating to the cloud remains a journey, but the destination is clear – ubiquitous cloud adoption.
