The benefits of migrating to the cloud are well-documented. The cloud is a catalyst for transformation. While the cloud is changing the way IT is delivered and consumed, there are other challenges that appear post-migration.

Creating an operational infrastructure that works requires a number of complex decisions. In fact, many companies fail to properly plan for many post-migration issues, challenges, and key objectives including:

  • How does the cloud change your IT strategy?
  • Organizational velocity and the impact on culture, budgets, and technology
  • The evolving role of data
  • Culture, hiring, and outsourcing considerations
  • Achieving leverage (no-code/low-code solutions, DevOps, etc.)

The good news is that all of these have solutions. They are the next steps in your transformation journey that began with your decision to migrate to the cloud.

Join us on December 9, 2021, 12 - 1 PM ET, as our panel of your peers and industry experts discuss their experiences of challenges post migration to the cloud and the best way to overcome them.
