A Data-Driven Approach to Cloud Migration

The COVID-19 pandemic has made moving to the cloud an imperative for many organizations and their digital transformation efforts. The need to reduce latencies in gaining access to data for analysis has been a huge driver in a year of massive, rapid change. As we look ahead to a post-pandemic world, the cloud is more appealing than ever for data storage and analysis. It promises to make all the data that’s needed for analytics available to everyone who needs it while offering cost savings and performance boons. However, moving to the cloud brings challenges.

Making things simpler for our business communities often means making things more challenging on the IT backend. The more complexity in the technical infrastructure, the more difficulty for the people supporting that infrastructure. For those managing a move to the cloud, it is important to remember that this is a journey, one that is comprised of multiple initiatives, not a single project.

If you are responsible for your company’s migration to the cloud, this webinar is for you. Hear Claudia Imhoff, analytics and infrastructure expert; Chris Twogood, SVP of global marketing at Teradata, Kiran Narsu, VP of business development at Alation, and Ashish Yajnik, VP of product management at Teradata, for an in-depth discussion on:

- Three strategies that all organizations must develop to clarify how their data and cloud deployments will help the business reach its objectives.
- The common pitfalls that can stall and stymie cloud migrations
- How to avoid these pitfalls and create a seamless transition to the cloud
