Starter for 10: Meet Jonna Iljin, Nordcloud’s Head of Design
When people start working with Nordcloud, they generally comment on 2 things. First, how friendly and knowledgeable everyone is. Second,...
Together with Christopher Ziegler (Industry 4.0 Lead from AWS Germany), our Thomas Baus showed the participants of the workshop, in addition to a general introduction to Amazon Web Services, some ways to success in the cloud. The focus was on the following topics, among others:
A holistic view of cloud projects is the key to success, because cloud is not a purely technological topic. It’s not just about replacing virtual servers with cloud-based instances. A cloud – in particular AWS Cloud – offers much more than just infrastructure and requires much more than a purely technical migration. The successful and sustainable use of cloud services is an end-2-end transformation and should therefore not be driven as a pure IT project.
Bi-modal IT organization as a concept for dividing corporate IT into modern and traditional subject areas to enable fast and efficient adaptation of new paradigms such as that of cloud services. Our customer Husqvarna was mentioned as an example. There, together with AWS and Nordcloud, a digital IT service unit has been established as a backend for all cloud-based innovation topics such as IoT and analytics.
Successful case studies from the local market were also considered. In the course of this, some of the typical concerns of medium-sized companies (security, costs, employees …) were taken up and eliminated – in the truest sense of the word – by intelligent approaches. In this context, the great case study by IDC on AWS use of Deutsche Bahn was also referenced. You can find them here .
In addition to AWS and us, there was also a LEITWERK speaker on “Licensing in the Cloud”. The possible advantages and challenges with regard to their licensing when moving workloads to the cloud were discussed. Subsequently, the topics of finger food and cold drinks were further deepened in a relaxed atmosphere and concrete use cases were discussed.
At AWS and Nordcloud, we deliberately want to make small and medium-sized companies in the German-speaking world sustainable through our services around Amazon Web Services. The innovative strength and agility of the numerous hidden champions is very great, for example, in the area of manufacturing companies.
