Recorded Webinar: Key steps in adopting cloud and SaaS delivery for enterprise data

29 March 2022

Following in the footsteps of market data migration to the cloud, enterprise data is finding its place in the cloud alongside Software-as-a-Service apps and data delivery mechanisms. The initial aim is to achieve greater efficiency and reduced costs by moving non-core processes off premise, while retaining mission critical apps and data in-house. Moving forward, the potential of faster and better decision making is pushing more enterprise data into the cloud.

While the theories are sound, the practicalities are more difficult. Decisions must be made about what data and apps should and should not be moved to the cloud, which types of cloud work best for the business, and which SaaS providers to use. Enterprise data integration, quality, privacy and security must also be considered, along with how to ensure all data is consistent, up to date and accessible.

Register for the webinar to find out more about:

  • Best practice approaches to migrating enterprise data to the cloud
  • Data management challenges of a cloud and SaaS set up
  • How to optimise your data platform for a multi-cloud environment
  • How to make the most of SaaS applications for enterprise data
