The question of whether to migrate enterprise applications to the cloud is not so easily answered for most organizations. The complexity of determining which applications should go, what resources are required, which hosting platforms and models are best, which are the most cost effective options all while maintaining security, scalability and performance creates anxiety and uncertainty around decisions and is slowing down the journey to the cloud. And for many, their initial forays into public cloud hosting has seen costs spiral out of control.

Recently Torsten Volk, Research Director with EMA, hosted a webcast with Andrew Hillier, Co-founder and CTO at Cirba, to discuss how to address the biggest challenges in public cloud adoption today.

During this webcast these two experts discussed the key barriers for Public Cloud adoption, how to assess which enterprise apps are suitable for public cloud, and how to avoid common mistakes and major risks when transforming to cloud.
