On October 27, 2022, Acceleration Economy conducted an online “Data Modernization Battleground” event, in which leading data tool vendors were invited to showcase their products before a panel of Acceleration Economy analysts.
In this Data Modernization Battleground moment, Nong Li, CEO/CTO of Okera, explains how organizations can shift their data from traditional data systems to the cloud.
00:11 — Shifting data from its previous system to the cloud can be a challenge, but there are many learnings the world has had in the last several years that inform users how to do so.
00:22 — There are two approaches to moving data from its previous system into the cloud:
- Take the existing use case and infrastructure and do a “lift and shift” into the cloud
- Modernize the application stack and ecosystem
00:54 — Depending on an individual’s use case, one solution may make more sense than the other. For those looking to shift all their data to the cloud, Li suggests understanding the criteria for a particular effort and getting as close to completion as possible. In that process, the entire organization will learn how to shift all of its data to the cloud.
