Codurance invites you to their event

Crafting the Cloud - aligning migration and application modernisation with AWS

About this event

Learn why ‘lift and shift’ migration won’t deliver lasting change and what steps you can take to modernise your business from the ground up.

In economic uncertain times, it's more important than ever to keep a lid on IT spend, stay ahead of disrupters and find new ways to innovate. But aligning your business with technology is hard if you don’t have the skills, culture or experience to get things done right or at scale. Many businesses are grappling with these and many other challenges as they build their cloud-enabled strategy.

In this webinar featuring talks from Codurance and its partner AWS we will explain why a ‘lift & shift’ migration won’t deliver lasting change and what steps you can take to modernise your business from the ground up using our unique Software Craftsmanship methodology.

You’ll also learn how businesses like Cazoo, Roche and Digital Theatre have adopted AWS cloud technologies to accelerate their pace of delivery whilst aligning to best practices - and how you can do this too.

We’ll cover:

  • Building a business case for change
  • Taking advantage of automated infrastructure
  • The importance of a well designed architecture
  • How to successfully transition to a new operating model
  • Building in governance, team structure and operational readiness to your strategy
  • How to increase visibility and understanding of cloud usage costs
  • How to empower your teams and give them the skills to succeed
  • How to migrate and modernise whilst maintaining business as usual
  • How to get started

You’ll come away from this session with a deeper understanding of why cloud adoption is just the start of a journey to innovation and some practical advice on how to step on to the path with confidence.

This webinar event includes a presentation by speakers from Codurance and Amazon Web Services followed by Q&A. If you are a technology leader looking to accelerate your cloud strategy or a business leader wanting to learn how technology can deliver greater value, this event is for you.
