Cloud Migration — Mitigate Risk and Accelerate Time-to-Value

Enterprises face the difficult task of keeping up with the rapid growth of data lakes and providing the compute power needed to analyze and make near real time business decisions on massive amounts of data. The Cloud offers the scale, agility and functionality to help address this challenge; but getting there isn’t easy, and is fraught with risk. In this fireside chat, Paul Scott-Murphy, CTO of WANDisco will discuss with Mike Gagne, IT Director at The Hartford, how automating the migration of their data lake to the cloud achieved scale, accelerated time to value and reduced costs.

Join this session to learn about:

  • Moving Hadoop from on-premises to the cloud without interrupting users
  • The importance of a data-first migration factory approach
  • Overcoming obstacles to accelerate time to value and mitigate risk
