Migration as a way to keep ahead of the competition – even in the cloud(s)
Your technologies, business processes, systems and devices aren’t static. Whether you’re moving from monolithic suites to composable architectures or want to use new analytics tools, a smooth migration route is crucial to maintain your success and keep your valuable data. The cloud has become the new golden rule in this process.

Why should you consider (cloud) migration?
No matter how familiar you are with your processes, systems, devices and technology, there will always be a time to switch to new software or a new platform. Or a time to realise that continuing to use certain legacy systems will damage your organisation’s digital performance. If any of these situations occur, you need to migrate all your relevant data to a new environment.
Over the last few years, migration to the cloud has become more important to many organisations. And there are great arguments to support that. For instance, you can upscale your capacity quickly and downscale it when needed. Also, (pricey) regular updates, with or without limited downtime, and manual interventions will largely become a thing of the past. It makes migration to the cloud an intense process, which you might want to have handled by professionals.
At iO, we have technology and strategy experts who combine their knowledge and expertise to find the perfect time for migration and then ensure that the process runs smoothly.

Our expert views
- Today, even innovation and transformation processes are highly subject to innovation and transformation. Uilke Duinstra, innovation strategist at the Utrecht campus of iO, is getting more and more questions from customers like: “We are a mobility company, but we also want to enter the energy market. How do we do that?” or “We are a B2B company, but how do we also become B2C?” More generally, it concerns questions such as “How can we develop relevant new services step by step, without immediately plunging into a multimillion-dollar project we’re not sure will work at all?” These kinds of issues, which show that domains and sectors are increasingly fading, require a new approach to innovation processes.Read more

Serious about innovation? Identify problems that matter.Not every innovation leads directly to improvement. As a company, when approaching innovation, you have to start the process by identifying the most important issues before you can begin to determine the correct strategy. But how do you identify the problems that are worth solving? And how far into the future can you reasonably predict?Read more
