The shift to the cloud with Amit Arora
Amit Arora, Data Scientist at Hughes Network Systems, sits down with TDS to discuss the shift to the cloud.

Episode Summary

The allure of the cloud, with its promises of cost benefits, greater stability, and more recently as the lynchpin of digital transformation, is well understood. But if such promises are to be realized, tech leaders need to think beyond just lifting and shifting on-prem applications into the cloud. Companies are reprioritizing their cloud initiatives, many shifting toward multi-cloud architecture and away from more traditional infrastructure. Our guest on this episode, Amit Arora, Data Scientist at Hughes Network Systems, joins TDS to dive into this “massive paradigm shift” from a static to a dynamic world, where companies are expanding beyond the investment in their traditional data center into many other areas. We discuss the advantages of this shift as well as how to organize a successful transition from a people, process and technology standpoint. We also take a deep dive into data science and data governance.
