Furlow consulting


Delaware North is a major presence in the food and hospitality industry, serving more than 500 million customers at 200 venues around the world each year. The company decided to move almost all of its data center operations to AWS. The migration helped Delaware North reduce its server footprint by 91 percent, achieve a projected cost savings of $3.5 million over five years, improve PCI compliance and disaster recovery, and vastly streamline the delivery of new services and solutions internally and to its business customers. This session is for executives and enterprise architects who want to learn how a large enterprise organization adapted their teams, tooling, and methodology to successfully migrate their business-critical functions to the cloud. You will learn about the tried and tested methodology we used including: the four main stages of the migration factory; tooling for discovery, team collaboration, build and migration; how we worked alongside the Delaware North security team and their external QSAs to agree on the approach for adhering to compliance and regulations; how we developed scripts to automate as much of the workload as possible including the auditing of dangerous security groups; and the team and skill sets we needed for the migration to be successful. This session is sponsored by Cloudreach.
