Adopting the cloud, or in other words migrating a business to the cloud, is not necessarily an easy task. Failure to properly prepare business for cloud migration can end up in costly results such as company-wide disorganization, prolonged downtime, loss of productivity and even loss of data.

CloudCatalyst provides comprehensive cloud computing support tools to businesses that are either looking to migrate their business to the cloud or have recently done so. The project will share expert advice on how to safely and efficiently execute a cloud migration, and more specifically, how to avoid the most common (and avoidable) mistakes that most companies tend to make when migrating to the cloud.
