Moving to the Cloud - the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

If at first the Cloud was generally looked upon with distrust, the last decade has showed a significant shift in perception, with people becoming more and more familiar with what the Cloud is and what it can do for them.

While many advantages and business benefits of the Cloud have been repeatedly proven, moving to the Cloud brings its own challenges in areas such as IT & Data Governance, Cybersecurity, Change Management, Cost Control & DevOps/ITOps. And, unfortunately, many of those challenges are discovered long after the Cloud adoption is completed, bringing along unplanned effort and costs.

The session will look at the most common obstacles one has to overcome after the decision to move to the Cloud has been made, the reasons as to why (and why NOT) move to the Cloud, the main items to look at and keep track of before and during the move, and of course what happens *after* the move to the Cloud is completed. Real-life examples included.
