You need a cloud exit plan, even for AWS, Google, Microsoft, or IBM

David Linthicum

The cloud computing infrastructure market—IaaS, PaaS, and private hosting—continues to consolidate around the four major providers, as they maintain or even grow market share at the expense of smaller providers. AWS has continued to grow its revenues more rapidly than the overall market. In other words, AWS is the one to beat, and it will likely remain so for sometime.

Data Analytics in the Cloud for Developers and Founders

Speaker: Javier Ramírez, Senior AWS Developer Advocate, AWS

In this session, we address common pitfalls of building data lakes and show how AWS can help you manage data and analytics more efficiently.

Fix your databases now as you migrate to the cloud

David Linthicum

It’s easy to just lift and shift them you’ll find the popular on-premises databases also available in the cloud. So you end up with the same limitations, just running somewhere new. Don’t do that.
