Who is this presentation for?

Data engineers, data architects, developers




Data is now moving out of the great rift valley and a grand evolution is in progress. Lift and shift provides an easy escape, but you still need to leverage the advancements in new technologies underlying microservices, new development (serverless), and deployment (containers) options. In addition, for compliance needs, common metadata has to be maintained for workloads that may execute across disparate environments.

Sanjeev Mohan walks you through an architectural blueprint for understanding key imperatives to cloud migration. You’ll discover best practices for easing the migration challenges.

On one hand, modern architectures beguile with promises of infinite elasticity and advanced analytics, but they leave technical executives sleepless as they worry about all the strategic and operational challenges. On the other hand, there are a raft of innovations and technologies to evaluate, but you need to sift through the hype and pick the products that have the best propensity to future-proof your investment.
