Journey to the Cloud: A migration masterclass

October 22, 2020
10:00 am - 10:30 am

With an increasing number of organisations planning their workload migration to Azure, it becomes essential to understand the concepts of migration methodologies, tools, and best practices for planning a successful migration project. According to Gartner, this is even more important in 2020’s growing cyber-security landscape where they estimate 80% of Cloud breaches will happen during migrations due to misconfiguration and mismanaged credentials – in other words, entirely preventable causes. Where security, budget optimisation and governance are concerned, best practices for Cloud migration can be pivotal, as even the smallest mistake can be debilitating to organisations. So how can you achieve a perfect migration?
