Panel Discussion: Cloud Pragmatics—And Now The Tough Part

2:00pm to 2:50pm
South Ballroom

Technology is easy (well, sometimes): we see a problem, we design a solution, we pick some technologies and learn how to use them. AWS and Azure represent a raft of new tech to be embraced, understood, and added to our problem-solving toolkit, and we know how to do that. But a significant part of cloud adoption lives in the murky world of institutional commitment, organizational culture, and individual human nature. How do you navigate those waters? How do you start a cloud adoption initiative, and keep it going? This year, the IT Summit is presenting a special session with experts sharing their experiences, insights, and recommended approaches in addressing these pragmatic questions surrounding a decision to move services to the cloud.
