One of the only ways to get out of a tight box is to invent your way out. When the world changes around you and when it changes against you – what used to be a tail wind is now a head wind – you have to lean into that and figure out what to do.

    Keynote - Unblocking Innovation for Digital Transformation

    Speaker: Miriam McLemore, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Evangelism, AWS

    Customer Keynote Speakers:
    Axel Winter, Chief Technology Officer, Central Technology
    Pongthai Chandpoung, Chief Technology Officer, SCB Abacus

    Digital transformation means something new every decade. This sort of constant change is stressful for any organization, but especially for the large enterprise. Because while nearly every enterprise began as small, scrappy team, success means growth, and growth means accumulation—more technology, more processes, more people, more red tape.

    In this session, we’ll give an executive-level view of how the cloud removes the stressful burden of on-premises applications, legacy technology, and outdated processes from the enterprise. We’ll examine what digital transformation really means, and offer prescriptive guidance around decluttering the enterprise, security, culture, and more.

    AWS enables every enterprise to rediscover its innovative roots. With the AWS cloud, enterprises become more agile, more efficient, and are better equipped to keep pace with constant change. As a partner, AWS enables every enterprise to live its own version of the Amazon Story—one of growth without burdensome accumulation, success without slowness, and constant innovation.

    Reduce Costs and Build a Strong Operational Foundation with the AWS Migration Acceleration Program

    Speaker: Surawut Phornthabthong, Solutions Architect, Thailand, AWS Solutions Architecture

    Up to 80% of enterprise IT budgets are spent on maintaining existing workloads and keeping the lights on versus focusing on new products and services to better serve customers. Migrating existing workloads to the cloud provides a lever to do that, providing efficiencies and benefits on your existing workloads.

    What if you could focus your attention and resources on differentiating your company in the marketplace? What if you could innovate at startup-like speed? And finally, what if you could dramatically reduce the risks inherent in your present infrastructure?

    If this is the working definition of success, let’s talk about how we’re going to achieve it, leveraging AWS’s proven Migration Acceleration Program as the path forward.

We also cover best practices, such as setting up key preventative and detective controls for implementing 360-degrees of security coverage, practicing DevSecOpson a massive scale, and leveraging the AWS services to meet the most strict and robust enterprise security requirements.

    Well-Operated: Cloud Management Best Practices

    Speaker: George Watts, Global OI Practice Manager, AWS Professional Services

Learn :

    1. How to ensure a smooth, fast migration by considering ongoing operations upfront

    3. How to set up your team members for success after the migration
    4. Who should own infrastructure operations when you're running Dev Ops
    5. How to adapt your security and compliance policies to the cloud
    6. When to rearchitect or "refactor" your applications.

    How to Convert Data into Insights that Enhance Decision-making

    Speaker: Craig Stires, Big Data & Analytics, AWS Business Development

    Your customers probably want a better experience with your brand. Your different business teams want and need better insights in their decision making. Almost certainly, your finance and operations teams require this to happen at a fraction of the cost of traditional on-premises options. Your business data contains critical information about customer behaviours, operational decisions, and many factors that have financial impact on your organisation. Increasingly, this data sits beyond your transactional systems, and is too big, too fast, and too complex for existing systems to handle. AWS Data and Analytics services are designed from our customers' requirements to ingest, store, analyse, and consume information at record-breaking scale. In this session you will learn how these services work together to deliver business automation, enhance customer engagement and intelligence.
