Public cloud platforms offer a myriad of promises including operational flexibility combined with an elastic cost structure, increased performance, simplified disaster recovery and standardization of IT processes & policies. Obtaining these benefits at scale, however, requires an intricate organizational transformation initiative to shift workloads from on-premises infrastructure to the cloud platform with zero business disruption. This session, led by Nike’s VP of Infrastructure Operations and Director of Global Warehousing Architecture, focuses on this initiative currently under way at Nike. You will learn about Nike’s journey from planning to deployment of WMOS in a public cloud platform for their North America Logistic Center, and explore challenges, learnings, and dependencies on enterprise capabilities.
