The cloud is transforming IT - improving performance, adding new capabilities, and lowering costs. However, for companies with decades of legacy IT investment, migration can be difficult. Google Cloud offers custom programs and professional services to drive cloud migration, so customers can focus on their applications and data and let Google manage the underlying infrastructure. You'll find many different types of migrations, including local or cloud placement, as well as cloud-to-cloud. The type of migration will depend on the type of application or workload that the customer wants to move and where it will move. You will hear different terms or nomenclatures for migrations, such as lift and change, move and improve, restructure and more.
