Wed Mar 29 2023 at 08:30 am to 11:30 am


Codurance | London, EN

Learn why ‘lift and shift’ migration won’t deliver lasting change and what steps you can take to modernise your business from the ground up.
About this Event

In economic uncertain times, it's more important than ever to keep a lid on IT spend, stay ahead of disrupters and find new ways to innovate. But aligning your business with technology is hard if you don’t have the skills, culture or experience to get things done right or at scale. Many businesses are grappling with these and many other challenges as they build their cloud-enabled strategy.

In this in-person event at Codurance London, we will explain why a ‘lift & shift’ migration won’t deliver lasting change and what steps you can take to modernise your business from the ground up using our unique Craftsmanship methodology.

We’ll cover:

  • Building a business case for change
  • Taking advantage of automated infrastructure
  • The importance of a well designed architecture
  • How to successfully transition to a new operating model
  • Building in governance, team structure and operational readiness to your strategy
  • How to empower your teams and give them the skills to succeed
  • How to migrate and modernise whilst maintaining business as usual
  • How to get started

You’ll come away from this session with a deeper understanding of why cloud adoption is just the start of a journey to innovation and some practical advice on how to step on to the path with confidence.

This in person event will take place at Codurance’s office and includes a presentation followed by Q&A and networking. If you are a technology leader looking to accelerate your cloud strategy or a business leader wanting to learn how technology can deliver greater value, we’d love to see you. The Codurance leadership team will be in attendance to provide practical advice and recommendations based on decades of experience across a range of industries and company sizes.
