Data platforms which have dominated the market for many years reach end of support life in March 2022 and this means change is on the horizon for many enterprises.

This marks a significant turning point. Enterprises have no choice but to migrate to something new and many are looking to cloud solutions. Some have already embarked on the daunting task of migrating and for those who have not finalised their plans, time is running short. Yet, the route to migration can be riddled with complexity, risk and high price tags.

To support Nimbus Ninety members on their migration journey, we are hosting a virtual roundtable on the evening of Thursday 12 May in partnership with Unravel Data, Appsbroker, Google Cloud Partner and British Telecom.
