About this talk

An increasing number of organizations are deciding to move their digital operations into the cloud, but this is only the first step in a long migration process. Today’s companies are presented with several options on how to get to the cloud and this choice carries seriously high stakes. Get it right and the business will see cost savings and improved performance. Get it wrong and join McKinsey’s estimated 70% of companies whose digital transformation efforts failed.

Specifically, we’ll look at: - The migration options on the table, whether IaaS, PaaS or SaaS - The limits, opportunities and best company fits of each approach - Some of the more common pitfalls that organizations fall into - And more
