Enterprise migration to AWS is only a first step in the transformation journey. Migrating applications to AWS with minimal or no changes is often considered a high-velocity approach for a higher NPV and a lower risk of production issues and customer downtime. AWS migration programs are followed by a continuous cycle of right-sizing optimization, reserved instances, and continuous tweaking based on usage analytics.
The commercial benefits are typically magnified by modernizing the enterprise application portfolio using AWS’s purpose-built databases, serverless computing, containerization, and microservices architectures. These technologies, when properly leveraged, help to build a high-frequency change organization that is responsive to disruption.
