Sami Begg, sales engineering manager for U.S. federal at Cisco's AppDynamics subsidiary, wrote in a commentary published Thursday on FCW that there are six steps federal agencies can implement as they migrate their applications and workloads to the cloud and the first one is application mapping.

Application mapping “presents to cloud migration planners a complete picture of the application and its many dependencies so they can make smarter decisions about what can be moved as is, what needs to be re-engineered for a cloud environment, and how to sequence the migration of those components to accommodate the application’s many dependencies,“ he noted.

Begg also called on agencies to identify resource metrics related to apps; understand how end users use apps; monitor the whole infrastructure stack; validate application performance and functionality; and provide a single source of truth from which all agency stakeholders can verify the success of the cloud migration.

“These steps will provide federal agencies the data, focus and process they need to ensure their cloud-destined applications continue to meet end-user and agency expectations after they have transitioned,“ he noted.
