Day Two: Ensuring Data is Fit For Purpose and Protected

Tuesday, October 6th, 2020


9:55 AM FIMA Tonight, This Morning! Not Your Average Panel!: Increasing Horsepower Behind Agility And Analytics: Strategies To Migrate To The Cloud

The cloud offers tremendous potential for agility, scalability, analytics and more efficient governance and regulatory reporting. The shift to the cloud is tied to the new and evolving data strategies and architecture as the industry moves away from legacy applications and databases. How is the cloud being aligned to support business goals and strategic plans? Does cloud migration require you to fix any problems in your current data lake environment? How do you handle different jurisdictional questions of the cloud?


Panelists will discuss:

  • Architecting a hybrid scenario where one database is on-prem with data coexisting in the cloud
  • Migrating data stores, data feeds and applications that are used to run the business
  • Reporting, customer and client data, and determining where to start first without disrupting operations
  • Conducting risk assessments and determining infrastructure that needs to be built out
