Back to Basics: Migrations hyper tuned for Efficiency and Automation
December 1, 1913 - quite an underrated day in common folklore. But, that day, perhaps the most impactful revolution after electricity was unleashed for the industrial world. Henry Ford, arguably the Father of commercial motor vehicles, first deployed his famous Assembly Line technique for the production of automotive vehicles. The average output time was reduced from 12 hours to roughly one.
On the surface, this might seem non-contextual to the IT or cloud world. But assembly lines helped establish and inspire two key paradigms: breaking complex production processes into defined independent steps synchronized in wholesome coherence and automation of all repetitive processes within.
Such diligence enabled constant standardized outputs irrespective of internal jitters and obviously, drastically reduce delivery timelines without impacting product qualities. Why can’t the Cloud IT universe tasked with hyper-complicated migrations, asset modernizations, management of multiple ecosystems, infra, platforms, apps, databases, workloads, and finally deliver ultra-innovative digital products and services operate in the same fashion?
That is a thought to ponder. And one that shaped Cloud4C’s strategy from the very beginning.
