Recorded Webinar: Maximising success when migrating big data and analytics to cloud

13 April 2021

Migrating big data and analytics workflows to the cloud promises significant cost savings through efficient use of infrastructure resources and software that scales dynamically based on data volume, query load, or both. These are valuable gains for investment banks, but they can only be fully realised by taking a new approach to architecture and software engineering.

To achieve a truly dynamic cloud environment that can scale limitlessly, banks need to transition from monolithic legacy architectures to software and databases that natively support horizontal distribution at geographic scale. Microservices architectures are key to this and adopting them can yield not only technical benefits, but also faster delivery by changing your Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) to support Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD).

The webinar will cover:

  • Approaches to migrating big data and analytics to the cloud
  • Challenges of achieving a successful migration
  • How to develop a microservices architecture
  • How to adopt and use CI/CD deployment techniques
  • Benefits of successful big data and analytics migration
