Upcoming March Branch Forum: Journey to the Amazon Web Services Cloud

Thursday, 18 Feb 2016

In 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) began offering IT infrastructure services to businesses in the form of web services—now commonly known as cloud computing. One of the key benefits of cloud computing is the opportunity to replace up-front capital infrastructure expenses with low variable costs that scale with your business. With the cloud, businesses no longer need to plan for and procure servers and other IT infrastructure weeks or months in advance. Instead, they can instantly spin up hundreds or thousands of servers in minutes and deliver results faster. Today, AWS provides a highly reliable, scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform in the cloud that powers hundreds of thousands of businesses in 190 countries around the world.

In order to benefit fully from adopting the AWS cloud platform, IT professionals will need to acquire new skills and the organization will need to implement some new business processes, or modify existing ones, that focus on making work practices much more efficient and agile.

This talk will focus on the AWS cloud adoption journey and look into some popular use patterns, sample use cases, real customer examples on how a business can change the way they produce and consume these new cloud based IT services.
