Planning is an important part of any cloud journey. Often an organization will start by taking inventory of their infrastructure and build a plan to migrate their on-premises virtual machines. An infrastructure migration does provide cloud-based benefits to the organization such as reliability, resiliency, and stability, but what are the next steps?
With this inventory, an organization can then begin to rationalize each workload to identify the best strategy for modernization. The strategies for application modernization are identified by "The 5 R's": Rehost, Refactor, Rearchitect, Rebuild, and Replace.
