The Cloud is Enterprise Ready: Migrate Core Enterprise Systems to the Cloud

As enterprises seek to fully realize the scalability, availability, security and agility of cloud computing, many are recognizing that they must migrate core business applications, such as finance and human resource systems, rather than just public-facing websites.

For example, the University of Arizona addressed the challenge of creating a more efficient and agile IT operation. After initial success in migrating their Research Administration system, they became the first major university to migrate their PeopleSoft application environments to AWS.

With re:Invent a week away, there is still space available to hear directly from the University of Arizona about their enterprise migration roadmap, lessons learned, plans and budgets, and the tools available to support major enterprise migrations. Save your seat in that session here.

Many organizations, like the University of Arizona, are extending or moving their business applications to AWS to simplify infrastructure management, deploy more quickly, provide greater availability, increase agility, allow for faster innovation, and reduce cost. Having a clear understanding of existing infrastructure costs, the components of the migration bubble and corresponding costs, and projected savings will help enterprises calculate payback time and projected ROI.

With a long history in enabling enterprises to successfully adopt cloud computing, AWS delivers a set of services specifically designed for the unique security, compliance, privacy, and governance requirements of large organizations.

Focus on the needs of your enterprise, not your infrastructure. Learn how to create a roadmap to cloud computing, transform application development, deploy mission-critical workloads at scale, and retrain staff. Attend the re:Invent session featuring the Deputy Chief Information Officer and the Director of Enterprise Technical Services at the University of Arizona.
