The promise of substantially reduced administration, low-cost overheads, faster ROI, and the ability to reach new markets and customers in regulated industries, drives crucial interest in the adoption of the Cloud. However, as with all technology transformation projects, clients usually start with the path of least resistance which is a lift-and-shift move of their existing applications.

In this webinar, we get insights directly from the horses mouth to learn best practices with real life examples in cloud migration.

Join our subject matter experts, Hamdy Eed, Senior Solution Architect at Amazon Web Services and Giovanni Gravesande, Solutions Architect, Migrations at Amazon Web Services to discuss:

  • Cloud migration use cases where lift-and-shift move is the shortest path to success
  • Use cases where it may be less than suitable and lead to drastic outcomes
  • Other migration and modernization best practices for migrating your existing workloads to the Cloud
