Many organisations rate "time to market" as one of their key challenges and organisational goals. The desire to be "more agile" as a business is driving the adoption of Agile as a software development methodology, DevOps to improve agility and delivery for both Dev & Ops and Cloud as part of the underlying technology platform.

But what does the journey to the cloud look like? How many ways are there to get there? Who needs to be involved? Is this just about technology or is this in fact a much larger transformation?

Steve Thair, DevOpsGroup Co-Founder and Microsoft Regional Director will take you through the cloud adoption frameworks and cloud design principles promoted by both AWS and Microsoft Azure, as well as real world examples from DevOpsGroup's customer engagements with organisations both large and small.
