The cloud is sh.., long live the cloud!

If Journey2Cloud was like a fairy tale. We wouldn’t have much to talk about. But no, transforming large scale organisations to cloud infrastructure is fraught with a number of technical and organisational challenges.

Transamerica and many other organisations managing the transition towards the cloud have had to overcome a number of significant and costly hurdles. Join this session for a candid and transparent view of how large scale cloud migrations can impact organisations, initially with challenges but longer term with a number of expected and also unforeseen benefits. We will also be deep diving into the benefits of cloud adoption and what aspects remaining that are potentially slowing down and holding back cloud adoption more wide spread in the industry. We warmly invite you for this interactive session on cloud technologies and their adoption.

This talk will be co-presented with Mike Josi.
