Guest of the Week (12/2)
Michael Liebow, Global Managing Director, Cloud Platform, Accenture plc.
Congratulations Michael! You are theCUBE Guest of the Week.
Surpassing 30,000 attendees, this year’s re:Invent conference is indicative of the enterprise mandate to move to the cloud and the promise of Amazon Web Services role with the digital transformation. Organizations are slowly beginning to move some workloads off-premises and into the cloud, yet migration remains a complex task for those interested in AWS products.
Revered by developers and the “self-start IT” crowd, AWS is much more complicated for the average enterprise IT department. One solution for simplification is the Accenture AWS Business Group. Born from a 10-year partnership between the two companies, the group is jump-starting this journey by offering AWS as a Service, enabling change and accelerating agility for IT organizations.
Throughout the week, theCUBE, from the SiliconANGLE Media team, spoke with industry leaders at re:Invent who confirmed that AWS is in a position to infiltrate the enterprise and lead the way for digital transformation to the cloud. (*Disclosure below.) One notable interview for John Furrier (@furrier), and Jeff Frick (@), co-hosts of theCUBE, was with Michael Liebow, global managing director for Cloud Platform at Accenture plc.
