Chapter 2

How can I drive sustainable transformation?

Whatever the industry, today’s organizations want to become more agile so they can innovate and respond to changes faster.

However, they also manage a portfolio of applications and workloads that are complex and built over a long period of time. When you re-evaluate your application portfolio, you have the opportunity to consider the best path for each, considering functional, feature, or business requirements. You may consider which applications to retain and which to retire. For some applications, you may choose to move to the cloud as-is to gain total-cost-of-ownership (TCO) benefits, and for others, you may want to invest in rewriting the application in a cloud-native manner to maximize your agility. We call these decisions The 7 R’s (retain, retire, relocate, rehost, repurchase, re-platform, and refactor), and they are all part of your cloud journey toward realizing the benefits offered by AWS. The more
you understand the technical makeup and customer value of your applications, the better equipped you will be to make sound

As our customers pursue the reality of migration and operating in a cloud-first development environment, they often tell us that their ability to move fast on the right path is a critical differentiator. Without speed, organizations begin to lose momentum and executive buy-in wanes. When results are realized too slowly (or aren’t properly quantified and communicated), the business case weakens— potentially jeopardizing the project’s financing and support.
