In episode seven of gravity9’s Digital Matters podcast Partner Andy Ross talks with Cloudsoft’s  VP of Engineering, Aled Sage and Principal Engineer Alasdair Hodge about migration to the Cloud and why it isn’t just an IT initiative.

  • A breakdown of the main Cloud offerings, including; AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform and Alibaba, and what differentiates them from one another.
  • The key benefits to Cloud migration outside of IT and why it is an enabler for innovation and creativity.
  • Why Cloud is an enabler and how start-ups are leveraging the benefits of Cloud to bring their ideas to life.
  • The impact of Cloud on the wider organisation, how it is forcing, once siloed, departments to work more closely together and how Finance and Procurement, amongst other departments, are having to adapt.
  • The common pitfalls organisations face when undertaking migration and how to avoid these.
  • The most common Cloud migration strategies and how one size doesn’t fit all.
  • What the future holds for the Cloud and the rise of the hybrid Cloud.
