9:00 AM – 10:00 AM Keynote:
Enabling Transformation through Agility and Innovation

Enterprises embrace cloud computing as a flywheel for frequent value delivery. This requires tighter alignment with business unit stakeholders to increase agility and the pace of innovation. In this session, we explore the potential for transformation that comes with cloud adoption and discuss how some of the world’s leading enterprises have been able to transform and quickly deliver business value outcomes. We also explore organizational and technology best practices that you can implement to turn your enterprise into a more agile and innovative one.
10:00 AM – 10:45 AM Migration and Modernization:
Best Practices for Migrating Your Enterprise Workloads to AWS

Enterprises have built up complex portfolios of enterprise applications commonly built on SAP, Oracle, Windows and SQL Server and virtualized with VMware vSphere. Moving these application portfolios to the cloud is imperative to free-up resources and gain agility for the business. This session will show you how AWS can help enterprises achieve value faster and reduce their time to cloud maturity by utilizing best practices and strategies developed by working with hundreds of customers on their large-scale migrations.
10:45 AM – 11:15 AM Morning Break and Sponsor Booths Open
11:15 PM – 12:00 PM Cloud Economics and Financial Management:
Developing a FinOps Culture

The flexibility offered by AWS to pay as you go offers an opportunity to continually optimize your costs as you grow. To maximize this opportunity, a cost-conscious culture that assigns responsibility for efficiency should be adopted to ensure your organization delivers on its business outcomes in the most efficient and cost effective way. This session will cover a wide range of cost planning, monitoring, and optimization strategies that can be implemented to help you achieve your AWS financial goals and will feature real-world experiences from AWS customers.
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM Lunch and Sponsor Booths Open
1:00 PM – 1:45 PM Rapid Innovation:
Demystifying AI for the Enterprise

Artificial intelligence (AI) is often discussed as a future technology with transformational impact across society. In reality, many enterprises already use innovative AI powered solutions to drive new levels of scale, create new efficiencies, and generate new predictions. In this session, we will explore real world use cases that demonstrate how AI helps organizations innovate for realized business outcomes.
1:45 PM – 2:30 PM Enterprise Readiness - Culture, Organization & Governance:
How to Build your Cloud Enablement Engine with the People You Already Have

You know your business can benefit from the cloud, but what does this mean for your staff and operating model? In this webinar, we share best practices we've learned from helping thousands of organizations transform their operating models to accelerate cloud adoption and create innovation flywheels. We show you how you can start with a small, dedicated team from your existing business, design, engineering, and operations staff to free development teams to focus on delivering applications instead of focusing on platform or governance concerns.
2:30 PM – 3:15 PM Afternoon Break and Sponsor Booths Open
3:15 PM – 4:00 PM Enterprise Readiness - Culture, Organization & Governance:
Amazon Culture of Innovation

Organizations of all sizes often ask how their companies can innovate like Amazon. Since its humble beginnings as the "World's Largest Bookstore," Amazon has not only innovated across e-commerce and other adjacent segments but has also introduced entirely new and unrelated businesses to the organization. Over the years Amazon has gotten very good at taking hard-to-solve problems and making them easy for the masses to use. This session will look at how Amazon views and leverages technology as a utility to increase the pace of innovation across the organization.
4:00 PM – 4:45 PM Security:
Elevate Your Security with the Cloud

Cloud security and compliance is now an enabler to help enterprises innovate quickly and securely. For many enterprises moving to cloud, the security model can be different from their traditional on-premise infrastructure. While the security requirements will likely remain constant, the security controls may be different. At AWS, security is our top priority and this session provides an overview of our security model and best practices to help you innovate quickly while maintaining enterprise-level security in the cloud.
