Cloud computing has matured, and individuals at many organizations recognize the benefits of migrating their existing on-premises reporting and analytics data warehouse applications to the cloud. Deploying a system in the cloud seems straightforward, as if it were as simple as replicating your on-premises system configuration on a cloud-based computing platform. Cloud hosts provide a broad array of computing and storage resources, and there are many native auxiliary services and third-party software platforms that can be adapted to supersede the capabilities of traditional on-premises deployments.
In this webinar, we discuss ideas for evaluating current on-premises data warehousing and analytics applications to assess their suitability for movement to the cloud. We will examine how different applications are suited to different migration scenarios, and discuss alternatives for prioritizing the systems to be moved and developing a reasonable plan to ensure a successful migration. .
Attendees will hear about ways to devise a strategy and a plan for migration to the cloud, and will learn about:
- Articulating and socializing the advantages of cloud migration for analytics applications
- Understanding migration scenarios
- Cloud migration challenges
- Assembling a migration strategy and developing a plan
