Zero Cost Cloud Migration – Thinking Beyond CapEx vs. OpEx

For everything from CRM software to Business Collaboration tools, over 80% of Enterprises rely on multiple cloud computing services. But Enterprises often find themselves wrangling with multiple technical and financial issues when they are jumping into a cloud migration without the correct planning.

Especially, when confronted with the complexity of today’s multi-cloud environments, the situation quickly becomes much more complicated. What initially seemed straightforward becomes significantly more expensive.

For many, enterprises the best way to determine ROI is its capital expenses (CapEx) versus operational expenses (OpEx). But the real fact is you must look beyond the CapEx vs. OpEx benefits and assess the other value drivers at play, to understand the complete value of cloud migration for your enterprise

Let’s first dig into CapEx and OpEx.

What is CapEX and OPEX?
CapEx
To create long term benefits in the future, enterprises incurred some expenses, and those expenses are known as CapEx. Some examples of IT items that fall under this category would be whole systems and servers, printers and scanners, or air conditioners and generators. Maintenance of such items is also considered CapEx, as it extends their lifetime and usefulness.

OpEx
On the other hand, the expenses to run day-to-day business – the operating cost is OpEx. Here the enterprises will pay according to usage.

OpEx is how cloud computing services are procured, while CapEx is the standard model of traditional IT procurement. The two have very different implications for operational flexibility and cost.

CapEx Vs. OpEx

In the initial stages of Cloud Migration, it’s important to determine which workloads will be migrated to a public cloud (OpEx) and which ones to keep on-premise (CapEx). As migrating workloads in the public cloud doesn’t require steep upfront CapEx, proper planning will avoid costly surprises. More specifically, it’s essential to perform a thorough cost-benefit analysis provides clear insights into usage levels and their associated expenses from the start.

But in the 2nd stage, when they want to withdraw from one cloud service provider and opt for a new provider and they have to pay the both until the migration is completed., how the enterprises will handle the cost? It is time to think beyond CapEx and OpEx.
