About the talk
In this session, we will demonstrate our approach to migrating to GCP. We will walk through our decision process for whether to utilize cloud-native tools versus building in-house solutions. Learn how best to prepare your workforce for this organizational and technological change, and what we learned from our process along the way. We will provide a blueprint for migrating media and publishing infrastructure to GCP with examples of the Forbes.com architecture before and after. The GCP migration was extremely important for our business, and Google has been a great partner along our journey to the cloud.
