Simplifying and De-Risking Big Data Cloud Migrations

A new perspective on de-risking the process


18:00-19:45 GMT

Wednesday 19 January 2022
Virtual - On Zoom

Data platforms which have dominated the market for many years reach end of support life in March 2022 and this means change is on the horizon for many enterprises.

This marks a significant turning point. Enterprises have no choice but to migrate to something new and many are looking to cloud solutions. Some have already embarked on the daunting task of migrating and for those who have not finalised their plans, time is running short. Yet, the route to migration can be riddled with complexity, risk and high price tags.

To support Nimbus Ninety members on their migration journey, we are hosting an event on the evening of Wednesday 19 January in partnership with Unravel Data, Appsbroker, Google Cloud Partner.
