Data Journey to Cloud: Challenges and Solutions

TUESDAY, JULY 24TH 4:35pm – 5:25pm

Cloud transformations have traditionally focused on moving infrastructure, platforms and applications to cloud. Now, as organizations discover the power of data as a strategic lever for growth, it’s imperative that becomes part of the cloud adoption strategy.

A Data on Cloud journey ensures transformational insights for decision-making are available – using modern logical DW, Visualization and Analytics solutions on Cloud. In this session, we’ll provide a methodology to realize the full potential of data in the cloud. In addition, we’ll share some challenges and solutions, as well as customer experiences of those that are using Google Cloud Platform.

Big Data Anti Patterns and GCP Antidotes

WEDNESDAY, JULY 25TH 1:00pm – 1:20pm
Moscone South Expo (S1205)

Organizations are rushing to use Hadoop and Big Data in droves without paying significant attention to the underlying complexity of successfully implementing Big Data solutions. This had led to many well documented Big Data anti patterns. In this session, you will learn how Google Cloud Platform Big Data products can be put to good use to address such anti patterns. We will present some real problems from existing customers and show how such problems can be solved through careful planning and the use of the right products from GCP suite of Big Data products.

Migrating Apps to Cloud: Systematic or Random

THURSDAY, JULY 26TH 11:40am – 12:30pm
Moscone West | Floor: Level 3 | Room: W3010

The cloud has emerged as the next platform for innovation and speed, given the advances in cloud technology and maturity of cloud offerings in the marketplace. The successful examples and stories of organizations taking their workloads to the cloud has resulted in many organizations adopting a me-too approach. However, in their rush to move applications to the cloud, many organizations adopted a random approach to migrate apps, while cutting corners along the way for the sake of advancing to the next stage. Others, on the other hand, adopted a methodical approach to think, plan, and carefully consider which workloads are appropriate for cloud migration. In this session, we compare both approaches and provide a proven methodology for migrating applications to the cloud, and GCP in particular. In addition, we will share lessons learned and customer examples (good and bad) on how to be in control of the app migration journey to the cloud to achieve desired success.
