We’re here to show you how, and to get you started.

Opening Words

We will take 10 minutes for everyone to get to know each other before we kick off.

AI Motivations and Use Cases for Migrating to the cloud

The morning will start with a dive into the motivations and use cases for migrating to Azure. During this session we will cover some of the common motivations, and challenges that may come with it so you know how to best overcome them.

Leveraging the Cloud Adoption Framework and Landing Zones

We’ll then get straight into the bit that everyone’s interested in – how to migrate to Azure with best practice. The answer? By following Microsoft’s Cloud Adoption Framework.

We will dive into each step of the Cloud Adoption Framework and what you will need to consider at each step, spending time investigating the importance of deploying a Landing Zone for long-term success.

A quick break
Building long-term success with a Cloud Operating Model

To ensure that your migration is a success, you can’t just lift and shift. You need to make sure that your business is geared up to shift its Operating Model into the Cloud. We will highlight the importance of this and what considerations you should make when moving into the cloud to ensure long-term value from your migration.

Accessing Microsoft Funding to Speed up your Migration

Finally, we will finish the event with the different Microsoft funded resources available to accelerate your migration, and how to access them.
