Key Takeaways from AWS re: Invent — on Cloud Transformation

According to Baker McKenzie’s 2020 Digital Transformation & Cloud Survey: The Future of Enterprise Data, the cloud remains on the top of the list of essential technologies for enterprises. Some of the most commonly employed public cloud services are Google, Amazon Web Services(AWS), Microsoft Azure, Alibaba, etc. Most of the studies have revealed that AWS is one of the most often used go-to the cloud and occupies a major portion of the share in the cloud market.

Cloud transformation is referred to as the process of adoption of cloud technologies for executing all the operations and functionalities of a business. As part of cloud transformation all the workloads applications, software, and programs are migrated to the cloud. Cloud transformation might also include the migration of the entire infrastructure portfolio to the cloud following the business requirements of an organization. Cloud transformation has made its presence felt in several industries.

Some of the Key Takeaways from AWS re: Invent on Cloud Transformation

1) Cloud Performance Visibility

Most businesses are now relying on several third-party services to enable them to easily scale up and down their services. As the usage of cloud-native solutions is high, most organizations are now using microservices and containers. Deployment of hybrid and multi-cloud solutions might hamper the ability to gain extensive visibility into the cloud environment. To address such issues many organizations leverage a mixture of point monitoring tools as well as rely on SLAs from AWS and other providers.

2) Performance Diagnostics Tools

Many enterprises are planning to make the best usage of available technologies, tools, and solutions by adopting a DevOps culture for facilitating better innovation. Most organizations often fail to get an effective understanding of how updating the code impacts the experience of a user. Teams also face hiccups when they are about to fine-tune or optimize their codes and this can also affect productivity. Therefore it is imperative that an organization employs appropriate performance monitoring and diagnostic tools that let teams quickly detect and resolve the various bugs and thereby facilitating easier and faster release.

3) Modernizing the Networking

Ensuring the stability of the network is one of the most important means of ensuring that an application executes smoothly even if it were being developed using the best practices. Moreover, the traditional networks are comparatively complex and fragile in nature. Commonly deployed VPN may involve a complex setup and hence extending the networks will consume an additional overhead of time. Reconfiguring the router-based networks is increasingly time-consuming and error-prone. This makes it extensively difficult for networking teams to keep pace with the aggressive release schedules. Network latency also presents another critical problem as data is required to travel for long distances to reach end-users who are located in faraway locations. This can critically compromise the performance of applications and thus degrades the user experience.

4) Launch of Several AWS Services

At the event, AWS also announced the launch of new services; AWS App Mesh, Amazon Managed Blockchain, Amazon Managed Streaming for Kafka (Amazon MSK), AWS Control Center, AWS Well-Architected Tool, and AWS Security Hub.

Conclusion

Cloud transformation is the process of moving the workloads to the cloud and can be seen as the embracement of a cloud-based workspace to facilitate easy execution of the day-to-day functionalities of a business. Cloud transformation helps a business to offer a seamless experience to the customers as well as exploit the latest innovations offered by the cloud.
