The article “No pain, no gain – The road to the cloud” published in IT&Production – 11 2020 highlights the tasks and current challenges many companies are facing, but especially the methodology with which the transition from the existing application landscape to a cloud-supported structure can be made.

The cloud is not a place, but a form of information management. The transformation of business applications requires prudence and foresight. Do companies become dependent on hyperscalers? Does the sovereignty over their own data remain with the companies? And what needs to happen when migrating to the cloud? How can the cloud be used especially in smart logistics and manufacturing as a supplement to the integrated business application landscape?

The article has been written by Peter Gibbels, Center Director Center Integrated Business Applications, Shyam Ghodasara, Project Manager Center Integrated Business Applications, and Ralf Bigge, Managing Director EICe Aachen and was published in German in IT&Production – November 2020 (p. 90).
