Navigating Cloud Change Management: Strategies for Data Modernization and AI Readiness 

Webinar Speaker: Fern Halper, TDWI VP Research, Senior Research Director for Advanced Analytics

Date: Wednesday, July 24, 2024

Time: 9:00 a.m. PT / 12:00 p.m. ET

A recent 2024 TDWI survey shows that 45% of organizations are evolving their data strategies primarily to support modern analytics, including machine learning and AI. As companies gather diverse data types, they face pressures to modernize their foundational data systems to handle growing data volumes and enable automation to process data more effectively for AI. This often necessitates a move from on-premises databases to cloud platforms.

Cloud platforms enable agility, data availability, and scalability to support the compute-intensive nature of AI. Yet the complexity around refactoring, replatforming, and cost continues to be a challenge, along with other issues. In addition, organizations need to transform their economic models, develop new processes and delivery pipelines, and upskill existing teams to ensure migration costs result in tangible benefits and outcomes.

Join this TDWI webinar with TDWI’s VP of research, Fern Halper, and Paul Lewis, chief technology officer (CTO) at Pythian, as they discuss how to best modernize to the cloud and key strategies for overcoming challenges. Topics include:

  • Building a cloud-smart strategy: Why organizations are migrating databases to the cloud
  • Common challenges of cloud migrations and data modernization including organizational change management and technical complexity
  • Best practices for migrating and modernizing data in the cloud
