While CIOs and IT managers have long understood the benefits of cloud, the actual cloud migration process can be tricky business. Such initiatives often overrun, go over budget and become a nightmare for organisations to keep a tight grip on.

In this third episode of Cloud Innovators, our seasoned migration experts discuss how the migration process should work, from the role of testing and the importance of security to how CIOs work on migration day with the rest of the business.

Listen in to hear plenty of practical guidance, stories about migration ‘wins’ and also how to face the bumps in the road!

Contributors featured in this episode include:

  • Fatuma Mahad, former Director for Technology and Operations at the University and College Admissions Service
  • Alex Farr, CIO for Strictly Education
  • Alex Denley, Deputy Director of Innovation and Transformation at London South Bank University
  • David Traviesas, Director, IBM Europe Cloud Migration Factory

In episode 4 of the Cloud Innovators series, we tackle where responsibility lies between CIOs and vendors, how MCSPs can supplement the skills gap and how organisations get clear insight into how their applications are performing in the cloud.

Cloud Innovators is the podcast series guiding you towards successful cloud migration, and beyond.

Featuring real-life success and horror stories from acclaimed CIOs, industry analysts and consultants, this series outlines how IT leaders venture forward with their cloud journeys, from establishing their cloud vision and navigating those migration complexities to the growing role of containers and managed services.
