It’s 2020, and still 70% of transformation project fail. Cloud adoption is accelerating, but so many companies are still struggling to plan a migration & setup a proper Governance in a reliable way. Do you have questions like “what are the 120 AWS accounts that be just discovered are about”, and “who is the owner of a troublesome cloud account”? Then this talk from LeanIX can give valuable insights on how successful companies provide transparency and the required business context.

Day-to-day threats can destroy data and ruin a business. That’s why it is critical for all businesses to have a current, active disaster recovery (DR) plan. If you’ve completed a cloud migration project, perhaps it was your dress rehearsal and your chance to see how well prepared you really are.

 

In this session, attendees will learn to adapt their BC/DR plans to support Cloud Migration.

 

Areas that will be covered include:

  • Server operations failover and failback
  • Production application-specific operations failover and failback
  • Production database operations failover and failback
  • Production workload failover and failback
  • Workload onboarding into public cloud
  • Software and data dependency discovery and mapping
  • Critical path analysis of recovery and continuity workflows
  • Production data consistency and integrity assurance
  • WAN throughput and latency optimization
