Journey into the Clouds – “Cloud-first” Digital Transformation

A webinar sponsored by Astrix 

Date:  Wednesday, November 17, 2021

Time:  1:00 PM EST / 10:00 AM PST


With digital transformation at the top of the agenda, it’s no surprise that most organizations are adopting a ‘cloud-first’ strategy to modernize their operations. Cloud based computing can provide considerable game-changing technological advances and cost effective scalable solutions to the modern laboratory. However, before you dive head-first into the clouds, developing a detailed migration plan is essential to the success of your transition to a cloud-based infrastructure.

Considering a hybrid cloud solution may offer the most flexibility while adapting to your new digital strategy, but balancing the benefits versus the risks of this complex architecture require careful analysis, planning and execution.

In this webinar we will discuss:

  • Why is industry moving to the cloud?
  • Transitioning legacy on-premises applications to the cloud
  • Adopting cloud-hosted Software-as-a-Solution (SaaS) offerings
  • Differences between SaaS and cloud-hosted environments
  • Operating in a hybrid setting with a mix of on-premises and cloud-hosted solution
