Bootstrapping - Session 3 - Costs & Agility: Achieving the IT “X Factor

640

Published on

This presentation explores how customers are saving money and enabling new kinds of work with AWS today. The topics we will cover in this session will include; how the cost model changes with cloud computing, how to do detailed IT cost comparisons (TCO) for on-premise versus AWS. We’ll be joined by Mark Miller. the CEO of Tellybug, who deliver real time voting, play along and social engagement for “The XFactor”, “The Voice” and “Britain’s Got Talent”. For a couple of hours a week Tellybug is driving enough traffic to be the equivalent of the second most visited website on the internet. We’ll learn how they cope with such huge infrastructure challenges and how they manage costs.

Dan Rogers, Product & Digital Marketing, AWS
Matt Millar, CEO, Tellybug
