This workshop is designed to guide business and technical leadership through the process of adopting Azure within their organization.
Attendees will learn how to form a strategic cloud strategy team that includes stakeholders across the organization. Members of the team will learn how to build a cloud strategy that clearly outlines your success criteria, including timelines and business outcomes.
A transition to the cloud doesn't have to be painful for the staff implementing the transformation. Attendees will learn best practices for helping their staff adapt to the change the cloud will bring by focusing on topics such as strategic communications, hiring and re-skilling for the cloud, as well as continuous learning.
From there, attendees will learn best practices for forming a Cloud Center of Excellence (CCoE) as well as understanding how to structure the technical teams necessary to move or modernize workloads in the cloud.
Throughout the course, attendees will learn how they can individually impact change that overtime will help transform an organization into an agile, DevOps friendly, digital workplace.
