HFS Webinar: Accelerating and Consolidating Your Cloud Native Future

February 18, 2021

The secular shift toward an accelerated adoption of cloud capabilities continues unabated.

Disruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic, competitive threats and continued M&A have only accelerated things. Yet, despite all the marketing noise around technology capabilities such as containerization and microservices, the steeper challenge in journey toward cloud-native operations is more about culture, people, and processes than technology.

We have more to learn from the experiences of organizations that have the battle scars from venturing out on that journey. Many got caught out by a lack of cost controls and governance and learned on how to optimize on point use cases.  Therefore, more than anything else we need more clarity on not only the ultimate destinations for all those journeys but also the key tenets around an approach that ensure success.

On this webinar, we were delighted to be joined by Mark Smith, who is using his deep experience in leading complex technology programmes to help Ardonagh Group navigate its transformation journey and the discussion shed more light on:

A structured framework for the cloud journey itself

3 tenets to building a cloud-native culture mindset, mental models & metrics

A practitioner’s guide to building a new culture that embraces the principles of “cloud-native”
