I know many of our readers must be sick of the “cloud computing” hype by now. If you’ve only heard the discussion from the point of view of some IT bloggers, marketers, and vendors you’d be led to believe the cloud is all benefit with few costs or risks associated with it. The reality for IT Operations and Development teams stuck with the task of implementing cloud based services is much different. Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) migrations can be complex, time consuming, and expensive. With that in mind, we’re pleased to join our friends from RedHat to provide an engaging webinar which will discuss strategies to succeed in your PaaS migration. We also published a blog post highlighting a few of our tips as preview.

Having reliable data will keep IT operations, application support, development and business stakeholders all on the same page. Number three, Application Performance Management (APM) tools serve as an insurance policy for your PaaS migration. How will you know if your migration is successful if you don’t have the visibility into your application and infrastructure components? You’ll need visibility both on premise and off to succeed.
