“What are the challenges with migrating from an on-premise solution to a cloud-based solution?”
My team is actually in the process of migrating from an on-premise solution to a cloud-based solution for our digital signage platform in order to extend our offerings to the entire Enterprise. We are not using a vendor cloud, but an AWS (Amazon Web Services) cloud that is part of the government cloud, so results might differ from a standard situation. The biggest challenge we have come across so far is dealing with International areas and Export rules. We need to ensure the data stays in-country while keeping the cloud option available. Having our security team in the loop has been necessary to ensure we are following all export rulings. We are just in the beginning of this process, so I am sure knowledge about what to do and what not to do is still to come.
