Workshop 3, Topic 1: Content Delivery – How Far Away are we From an Industry-Wide Migration for Content Encoding and Technical Services into the Cloud?

In this session, we will focus on a cloud revolution: migrating content encoding and technical services into the cloud. Whether you’re a cloud expert or simply cloud-curious, this session has something for everyone.

In the airline industry, moving to the cloud isn’t just a trend – it’s a strategic transformation. We’ll explore how this shift affects everything from cost efficiency to scalability and data management. How do we navigate the challenges and opportunities this migration presents? We’ll delve into real-world case studies, sharing successes and lessons learned.

But it’s not just about moving data – it’s about moving mindsets. We’ll brainstorm barriers to cloud migration, from technical challenges to organizational resistance, and discuss innovative solutions and strategic partnerships to facilitate a smooth transition. Our goal? To chart a course for a successful industry-wide migration to the cloud.
