Synopsis

How did a large Utility’s aggressive cloud migration strategy enable home working for most office based staff during the COVID-19 lockdown. What worked, what caused the most problems and do cloud services really deliver what they claim when your backs are against the wall? Personal experience from the front line during this unprecedented test of disaster plans, cloud scaling and 90% home working.
