Migrate and Modernize - Executive Masterclass and Overview

10:00 AM – 11:00 AM | Fireside chat
Executive Masterclass - Making the case for change (Level 100)

How do you build a case for change beyond just IT cost savings, and get buy-in and ownership across your organization to achieve these benefits?

The cloud can help increase agility, resilience, and security; it can enable innovation and better customer service; it can help streamline operations. Which of these benefits is most closely tied to the business’s strategic objectives? Once you decide, your business case flows from that—as does clarity, prioritization of what you’ll do in the cloud, a sense of urgency, and your way to measure results. The benefits of the cloud are not just technical benefits, but business benefits, and that’s where the business case is.

In this Executive Masterclass, you will hear from our customers that have boarded the cloud adoption journey, how they build their case for change.

Based on IDC’s finding, 92% of the value AWS customers receive is from benefits beyond cost.

Who should attend: Business Decision Makers, Technical Decision Makers, Migration Leads, Cloud Architects/Engineers, IT Professionals, Solution Architects, IT Operations and Admin and anyone looking to innovate with speed and agility.
