This is a broad question to answer here. There is no best answer, each situation is unique, that is why IT consulting is needed to study your current data estate and recommend the migration strategy. There are many IT services companies in India, please choose the one you prefer or follow the RFP process that you have available in your company

The "best" hyperscaler depends on various factors such as specific business requirements, workloads, scalability needs, geographic presence, security considerations, and budget. Three major hyperscalers commonly considered among the top options are Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Each offers a wide range of services and features, with their own strengths and considerations.

Cloud is the way forward for enterprise, i would first move all employee services like messaging,collaboration, document sharing to Cloud, that's big part of employee requirement.
Application needs to evaluated based on business, core apps for manufacturing which needs low latency to be closed to the machines preferred in local data center, rest of it can be moved to cloud. Hyperscaler most cloud vendors provide the best of services, preference is based business needs application integration and important is Cost.

I agree with all.. It is very difficult to decide on one of the three.. AWS, Azure & GCP.. It will depend on the long term roadmap.. Technically, all are providing more or less same features.. If u have many business applications which are on MS platform then it makes sense to go to Azure.. If u have a lot of end-customer / geo location centric data then GCP can be better choice as they offer a lot of services which are natively integrated. The Partner eco-system for AWS is good.. For GCP, it has come up.. From naufacturing perspective, they all have good features available.

In India, there are quite a few hyperscalers, namely AWS, Azure, Google, Oracle, and IBM. Each of these providers offers a range of cloud services, and it is necessary to conduct a study to determine which one is best suited in terms of business requirements, compliance, availability, customer centricity, and pricing.


The choice of strategy will depend on the application mix and should be evaluated for each specific application. The following options can be explored:


1.     Lift and shift: Moving applications to the cloud as is

2.     Re-platforming: Making modifications to the application to leverage the advantages of the cloud.

3.     Retiring: Applications planned for retirement can be excluded from the migration process.

4.     New Development on cloud: Developing new applications directly on the cloud platform.

5.     Re-licensing: Transitioning from on-premises licensing to cloud-based licensing for licensed products.


There are numerous IT vendors in India who can assist with this process. It is recommended to connect with them and obtain quotes or follow the procurement process mandated by your organization.
