Presented by

Stacey Halota, Graham Holdings; Pratyush Rai, Kaplan North America

About this talk

Moving to the cloud is a big decision and encompasses areas including scope, risk, cost and many others. The benefits of a successful migration can be significant, but there is risk to any large project that must be managed. In this fireside chat we will speak to a CISO and CTO who made this journey (and are still on it) and get their insight into what went into the planning process, lessons learned along the way, what is working well, and what they would have done differently. During the journey three business units under different leadership combined into one that now encompasses two different cloud varieties and traditional data centers. In addition, the migration has spanned several years and is still taking place, so the evolution of their planning process and future roadmap will be discussed. Specific topics include: · Factors considered when moving to the cloud · Major factors affecting the initial and subsequent decisions · Information security considerations · Applying privacy law in the cloud · Managing risk in the cloud · Efficiency gains · Running cloud concurrently with traditional data centers · Tool selection process for a diverse environment · Cloud and the remote workforce · Lessons learned · Future plans and roadmap ahead
