Hiring a cloud migration consultant won't only save you the stress of planning and executing a migration on your own; it will also save you the time of figuring out the logistics of the cloud on your own. A cloud expert can share tips, tricks, and knowledge with you and possibly save you from having to pay to rescue your cloud migration down the road if it goes wrong.
