Many organizations are leaping into the cloud in hopes of achieving “digital transformation.”
Collapsing your entire data center and moving it online might seem like a great idea, but just pushing your heritage application to the cloud won’t digitally transform your company any more that slapping an Autobots symbol on your car makes it a Transformer.
How do you actually move a workload to the public cloud? What are the pitfalls and gotchas? Why did we get a whole movie about Bumblebee and not Jazz? Let’s dive into the world of cloud migrations to find out.

- Why the principles and practices of digitization can’t only reside with that team
