One of the key principles at Amazon is that we start with customers and work backwards. Increased agility, elasticity, focus on core business, optimized costs, and better security are all good outcomes when it comes to working with AWS. But, for an enterprise with many existing complex applications, integrated operations, and sophisticated teams, this integration and transition requires thought and planning. Within this session, we will start with a typical enterprise customer and work backwards step by step to show how an extreme IT makeover it possible with reusable examples; demonstrating that an application doesn’t have to be written for cloud to realize cloud’s benefits. Many large-scale shops are already leveraging AWS without sacrificing what they are good at, and we will explain the framework for kicking off this initiative within your own organization.
