Digital City Festival 2021

Don’t Make Cloud Tomorrow’s Legacy Problem

Thursday 22nd April 2021
17:00 – 18:00 GMT

ABOUT THE EVENT

Cloud computing is seen as underpinning technology to support digital transformation – but how can you avoid turning it into a legacy platform in the future?

In this talk we will share thoughts and experiences on approaches to cloud adoption which seek to minimise the impact of it being tomorrow’s legacy problem.

We will take a look at considerations around cloud strategy, cloud technology and what business activity the cloud is ideally positioned to support.
