In today’s business, being "Cloud Native” is often touted as being critical to a business success and yes, it often can be.

However, to become “Cloud Native” is often imagined to be much more of a fundamental step-change for a business than it perhaps needs to be.

In this session we will cover what “Cloud Migration” actually means and how it will impact the IT support structures of your business. We will aim to cover the following topics: -

  • What “Cloud Native” services actually are and how they differ from “on-premise” services
  • The “6-Rs” of Cloud Migration strategies
  • A generalised framework for how to approach Cloud Migration
  • Some common migration use-cases and general advice around them
  • Potential impacts on IT support structures and what you need to be aware of.

This session will aimed to be as “grounded” as possible, so be aware - we will be talking tech!
