    Duration: 30 mins + Q&A

    AWS has grown at a phenomenal rate since 2006 and released a total of 722 new features and services, just in the last year – how does one keep up you may wonder? Well, AWS re:Invent – the world’s largest AWS gathering – is a great starting point but of course, it’s about much more than feature releases – how do you figure out what is relevant to your business? How do you assess whether your business is ready to effectively use AWS? How do you take what is available and deploy it to your own benefit?

    In this webinar we discuss both the hottest ins and outs as well as the most thought provoking perspectives that came out of this years' re:Invent. Our Hyperscaler Practice Lead, Mark Duhm and Hyperscaler Services Product Manager, Rob Selby, will be covering a number of topics:

    - Key updates & announcements (and their relevance in today's marketplace)
    - The 'so what' to AWS strategy & roadmap updates
    - Relevant perspectives around AWS in a Hybrid Cloud world, Security and Migration
