I think defining cloud migration is a good place to start. So, what is it?
According to Forbes, cloud migration is the process of moving digital operations into the cloud and usually refers to transferring from on-premises data centres, or legacy infrastructures, to the cloud.
Remembering that although approximately 98% of companies are said to be running on-premises hardware servers to maintain IT infrastructure, the arrival of COVID-19 brought drastic changes to that statistic.

Public cloud, for example, makes digital assets available either free or on a subscription basis publicly over the Internet. Google, Facebook and LinkedIn are familiar examples.
