Event – Up in the Cloudz with AWS: A Breakfast Briefing

News and Events / July 13, 2017

We’re looking forward to running our next Breakfast Briefing session in the Westin Hotel on September 29th.

It’s shaping up to be a great morning full of customer stories, use cases and helpful information to successfully propel your company into the AWS Cloud.

We have limited spaces available, so if you are interested, register here.

Agenda for the morning

8.30 – 9.00am Breakfast kick off and Customer Speaker 
Martin Peters from DoneDeal talks Big Data. He’ll discuss their experience of analytics using Big Data services in AWS. He’ll share real-world experience of creating and running a solution using AWS Kinesis, Spark on EMR, S3 data lakes and Redshift orchestrated with AWS datapipeline.

9.00 – 9.30am Customer Speaker  Rory Moran from Zamano on their journey through the cloud-sphere
From on premise to private cloud to AWS public cloud, Rory will walk through the Zamano cloud journey and how they only really achieved “Cloud Value” when they moved to AWS.

9.30 – 10.15am Amazon Web Services The practical guide to getting it up in the cloud
Many enterprises migrating to AWS require expertise, tools, and alignment of business and IT strategy. In this section, we will visit how organisations have accelerated their migration, and their time to results, through working with DNM. We hope to have an open discussion but items that will be discussed include:

  • The importance of being well architected
  • Mass migration – a proven approach
  • My new DevOps team!
  • Workspaces over VDI/Citrix – less cost, less management, greater scale and security (need we say more!)

10.15 – 10.30am Q&A Session
