    Harvard Business Publishing has successfully migrated all production services to AWS and SaaS and shut down their data centers. Just like Cortez, HBP burned their ships to motivate and power HBP to the finish line. The migration to SaaS and AWS has drastically changed the role of HBP IT, and now the finish line has become a new starting point.

    In this interactive session Sr. Director IT Operations Ken Griffin will discuss how working with multiple cloud vendors and how lock-in has affected HBP. And how the process to build, manage, secure and maintain infrastructure in AWS has changed the way HBP IT works with Engineering and Security groups.

    He will discuss AWS lock-In, fault tolerance, security, cost management, employee burnout (not just in IT), getting help, training, retooling, innovation, reducing technical debt and lessons learned along the way.

    Ken will candidly share his experience and invites attendees to bring up their own questions and concerns. When you leave this session, you will understand that for HBP, why cloud migration was possible, difficult, expensive during the migration and ultimately worth it.
