This course will equip solution architects with the skills required to embark on a journey of assessing their current on-premises environment, defining the IT and non-IT goals for migrating to the cloud, understanding the operational targets, deciding the cloud topology, planning the migration tasks, and conducting the migration process.
This involves answering a series of specific questions that will progressively help students narrow down the range of cloud deployment options and develop a migration strategy that's built on an optimal blend of Oracle Cloud service offerings. This course is focused on principles rather than procedures and mentions relevant services and features. The overall aim is to provide students with a framework they can use at any time to assist a business migrate to cloud.
Course also includes worked examples where the attendees collaborate under the moderator's guidance to develop possible solutions which are then compared to Oracle-designed solutions.
