Pre-flight checks for the Cloud

So, your company is going to the Azure Cloud. Wonderful! How will you do it? There’s more to it than most know, and most are not really equipped for the flight to the Azure Cloud when it is time to taxi onto the runway.

Fuel for your journey are the business goals, which you must use to navigate when it begins to get cloudy. Your teams of ground staff, tower operators, flight crew and pilots must be organized in a purposeful way so that everyone is ready for great time in the skies. Pre-flight check is your tactical planning that gives you a practical mapping between strategy, organization, and cloud.

In this session I will discuss the exceptionally important steps of Strategy, Organization and Planning to get Ready for the Cloud. I will add my own experience as an Azure MVP, Lead Cloud Architect, and as owner of Loftysoft AB a consultancy for Azure expertise. Reality is that cloud is complex, and everyone can take even better care of the services and opportunities in the cloud platforms. It is my job to take on the cloud of my customers and “just” make it more cost optimized, faster to deliver, and easier to work with – better!

Welcome to the key advice for your better cloud now!
