Cloud migration is the process of moving applications, data, or other business elements to a cloud computing environment. An enterprise performs different types of clod migration processes. These cloud migration models include application and data transfer from on-premises or local data center to the public cloud; moving applications and data from one cloud platform or provider to another (cloud-to-cloud migration); and a cloud repatriation, reverse cloud migration, or cloud exit, where applications or data are moved back to a local data center and off the cloud.

Increase in business agility and automation across the enterprises significantly drive the growth of the global cloud migration services market. With adoption of cloud services, enterprises gain competitive advantage of increased business agility and reduced complexity. Small & medium business (SMBs) and independent software vendors (ISVs) are expressively moving to cloud to attain business agility.
Moreover, faster and easier deployment of applications with pay-as-you-go model drives the market growth, globally. Application deployment on a cloud offers benefits such as reduced cost & complexity and faster application development & deployment, which attract companies to adopt cloud services. In addition, the need for business continuity is driving demand for cloud-based services.

Cloud migration further helps teams to maintain complete access to programs and files wherever they are located and provide business continuity. Furthermore, it enable employees to maintain flexibility in their work locations. Moreover, need for lower capital expenses (CapEx) and operational expenses (OpEx) is one of the major drivers of the market. For instance, if users want to lower CapEx and reduce operational difficulties, they will probably opt for public cloud services, which use a pay-as-you-go model.

However, difficulties in enterprise application’s cloud compatibility and cloud interoperability hinder market growth. Evolution of cloud technology is remarkable, but the immaturity of some cloud solutions can result in integration issues, technical incompatibilities, and operational complexity. This challenge can be mitigated by ensuring cloud interoperability and software portability. In addition, the vendor lock-in problem in cloud computing is one of the major barriers to the market, due to the lack of standardization.

Vendor lock-in is the situation when users are locked in or dependent on a single cloud provider technology implementation and find complexities that might hamper the adoption of cloud in the future to a different vendor without legal constraints, substantial costs, or technical incompatibilities. On contrary, most of the industries are digitizing and increasing their spend on infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and growing the investments in servers, compute, storage, and other cloud-based services, which are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for market expansion during the forecast period. Furthermore, higher adoption of cloud migration services by healthcare sector to improve data access, interoperability, and daily work of medical professionals and nurses is opportunistic for the growth of the market.
