While cloud computing has certainly gained attention, the potential for increased uptake of the technology is still large. As a consequence, how to move and migrate to the cloud is an unanswered question for many organizations. Gaining an understanding of cloud migration processes from on-premise architectures is the authors' aim here. For this purpose, they look at three provider-driven case studies based on the common three layers of cloud computing: Infrastructure (IaaS), platform (PaaS) and software (SaaS) as a service.
