Minimum Viable Migrations (MVM), A Path to Cloud Modernization
Featuring Ben Ellerby
Most teams take an Agile approach to day-to-day engineering, but for migration projects this strategy goes out the window. In this talk, Ben Ellerby explores how a focus on Minimum Viable Migrations allows assumptions to be tested faster, increased team focus and better value to customers.cloud modernisation cloud-migrations migration
