Best Practices for Optimizing Migration to the Cloud


Cloud migration and modernization projects might not be the easiest to execute, but there is a better way of doing them than turning them into a trial and error process. At this session you will learn how combining a hybrid cloud data warehouse with automated lineage will help you prepare for migration and modernization projects and accelerate their execution.

Meet Ernie Ostic, MANTA’s SVP of Products, and learn:
• How MANTA’s automated lineage helps you scope and discover what should be migrated and modernized
• What role lineage path comparison plays in the migration process
• How to prevent potential privacy exposures
