Abstract or Summary

This paper presents a novel framework for organisations to carry out a structured feasibility study on Cloud migration and to decide Cloud Migration Strategy. Following the framework helps an organisation to decide whether Cloud migration is a feasible option for them, and if so, the best strategic approach towards Cloud migration. It is a crucial and sensitive part for any organisation to decide whether they should move to Cloud Computing platform. The decision requires strategic approach with proper feasibility study. Several technological, human, security and financial factors are involved in decision making process to move to the Cloud. The proposed framework helps an organisation to carry out a feasibility study to decide whether to move to the Cloud, and if so, what would be the best approach towards Cloud migration. The proposed framework addresses the factors that an organisation must explore to decide on Cloud migration. Cloud Computing has its own pros and cons. A whimsical decision to move to the Cloud may be disastrous for an organisation. Following the proposed framework will help organisations to carry out a structured and integrated feasibility study deal with the decision on Cloud migration.
