Once the team at American Express had agreed they needed cloud solution, Justin Moore thought their transition to OpenStack would be smooth sailing. The reality was that many organizational hurdles stood in his way.
In this session, Justin Moore, director of cloud operations at American Express, will discuss how he implemented an OpenStack private cloud at American Express that improved time-to-provisioning by 90 percent. He will provide several recommendations from his own experience in building a cloud-first strategy, including how to get stakeholders to stop finger-pointing and instead re-think organizational and technical processes.
Audience members will gain a better understanding of opposing viewpoints that hinder the transition to a cloud model, and learn approaches for addressing those concerns and building consensus.
