Leveraging Best Practice Methods in an Age of Digital Transformation

Patrick Costello 0 1800
Organisations today are rushing at unnerving pace to become more digital. So what does digital mean? For some, it’s about the new shinny technology. For others, digital is a new way of engaging with customers, suppliers and employees. And for others still, it represents an entirely new way of doing business. 

By definition if we are surrounded by technology – pervading every aspect of our working and social lives. Then we should make every effort to maximise the value the organisation extracts from it. Effective service management is at the core of great organisations – delivering effective, efficient and economical use of “resources” in terms of People, Process and Technology.

Join others that are new to AWS at the AWSome day, a free one day training event delivered by AWS Technical Instructors. The day starts with a session highlighting how and why customers are using AWS to develop, deploy and operate secure applications and IT services. 

They will then cover AWS foundational services such as Amazon EC2, Amazon S3 and Amazon RDS before closing the day with an introduction to AWS deployment tools and techniques and the next steps that you can take to continue developing your knowledge. 

Note that they are now introducing a second track dedicated to a business audience. This track is suitable for business leaders who want to explore topics like cost optimisation, security and compliance and hear more about customers' best practices.
