Why Migrate to the Cloud?
Over the past decade, a fast-growing number of businesses have adopted cloud computing. Cloud computing enables your business to access
software and your data at any time and from any location. Creating an effective cloud strategy can be a differentiator for successful companies.
Properly developed and executed, web applications in the cloud can bring great benefits.

TIP #1: DO YOUR HOMEWORK
Studies show that less than one third of all software projects succeed. The more you understand how web application development works, the more likely you’ll have a good outcome with your project. Trusting a “black box” is risky at best, so if you can learn the basics, you’ll mitigate risk of getting ripped off. Key topics to understand include:
- Project Requirements
- Project Scope
- Project Management
- Technology Stack
- Future Plans
If you understand how software development works, you’ll be able to make smart decisions and avoid the traps that lead to failure of so many projects.
TIP #7: TEST TEST TEST
Drill down to understand if the vendor has a robust testing method. In the end, you’ll get higher quality, easier to use applications. Yes, bugs will happen, but you want to minimize them by having a repeatable, adaptive test plan. And make sure there are appropriate resources (time & money) allocated for testing and iterating.
