Organizations are migrating infrastructure to the cloud en masse.
Almost half (48%) of all respondents to a 2021 survey indicated that they plan to move 50% or more of their applications to the cloud in the coming year, with 20% planning to migrate all of their applications, according to O’Reilly.
The journey to cloud-native applications isn’t always smooth, though. Migration is a risky business that can disrupt services and introduce unexpected costs. Mastering cloud migration calls for advanced techniques that dovetail with existing continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) methods.
Progressive delivery and feature flags are fast-evolving techniques that can keep migration projects focused while sustaining momentum.
