Given the current situation with COVID we are making the next Meetup a virtual event with help from our good friends at Cloudability.

You can access the webinar using this link https://apptio.zoom.us/j/812818832

The agenda has shifted slightly and we will also have a second speaker (to be confirmed shortly) but here's the brief description:

17:00 – Patrick Raymond (LiveRamp)
LiveRamp migrated 100 PB's of storage, 100K CPUs and 270TB of RAM from an on-premise datacentre to GCP in one year while containerising 200 applications. The migration was a fantastic success, but the immediate issue they faced was budget overruns! Patrick will provide some concrete ideas that you can use to improve your own cloud transformation and empower your teams. It's a great example to showcase why the solution to the problem of managing cloud costs is not just a tool, not just a process and not just a culture, it’s all of the above.

17:45 – JR Storment - Founder of FinOps foundation
JR along with Ashley Hromatko will give an update on the progress of the foundation including training and certification that's available for anyone who's interested in becoming a fully certified FinOps practitioner

Look forward to virtually seeing you all on the 30th!

Keep safe and best wishes!!
