6:30-7:00 Moving Quickly with Data Services in AWS
How is cloud changing data storage options for development teams at Thomson Reuters? Come hear how projects are changing the way they work with data in the cloud and what role a centralized cloud team can play in helping your business get products to market more quickly without worry about ending up on the front page of the news as the latest data breach. Any storage medium is up for discussion, but we’ll be primarily sticking to relational databases, elastic search, NoSQL and object storage. This will be useful to both teams that are looking to just get started in AWS to teams who already have production workloads in AWS. Although it assumes a basic knowledge of the relational database, elastic search, and NoSQL options in AWS, you will be able to get value if you haven’t used those technologies before.
