Spotlight on cloud Spotlight on cloud

The cloud is no longer just about changing how (and how much) you pay for IT. For industry leaders, it’s about enabling their organisations to continuously innovate, launch new products and respond to market changes.

However, there are big challenges in migrating to – and maintaining – this ideal state. How do you adopt new tools, techniques and best practices, such as DevOps, microservices and serverless architecture? What new skillsets are required for AI and other advanced technologies? How have leading organisations overcome these challenges – and how are they continuing to evolve?

iTnews will provide some answers to these questions in our Spotlight on Cloud. It will include coverage of the AWS Summit in Sydney on 5–6 April – where the world’s largest cloud provider showcases how its Australian customers are using cloud services in new and innovative ways.
