Moving to the cloud? 3 critical data efforts you must make

David Linthicum

I’m often taken back by the number of enterprises moving the cloud that have not considered data modernization as part of their cloud migration strategy. I know why: the money. However, not doing data modernization as part of moving to the cloud will cost you much more than you think you are saving. Data should be a first-class citizen when it comes to your cloud effort. While the number of things to think for cloud migration about gets longer, don’t let data fall of your radar.

The Six Principles of Persuasion

Speaker: Michael Carducci, CTO, Mago:Tech

As senior tech leaders, we often fall prey to thinking that a “good idea” and logical case is sufficient to get the desired response and result. We might be trying to get our CEO on-board with investment in a new technology or a rearchitecture effort, or we might want culture or process changes by our team. Our “good idea” is simply the beginning. An idea must be communicated; a case must be made; and ultimately other people must be persuaded to get onboard. Michael Carducci brings a fascinating background to this webinar. He’s a technologist and regularly works to help senior leaders improve their results. He’s also a professional mentalist and has been a student of psychology, human behavior and the principles of influence for nearly two decades.

Agile Mindsets: Don't try to get a perfect architecture; Plan to get it wrong

Social, Agile and Transformation

I still find teams that have adopted scrum and other agile practices, but still strive for perfection when trying to conceive architectures and implementation plans. Some will also try to think through every edge case to ensure that designs are fully future-proofed. This is an unrealistic proposition for most teams and people. There's too many unknowns, too much complexity, and businesses do.
