Communication

Communication is the last key to successful VMware Cloud on AWS migrations, according to Carter.

“We always say to customers and partners that once you've figured out the metrics, and you've met them or not, you need to start communicating that so you can share the learnings as you go along as well,” Carter said. “We've had several customers who've spoken for us at re:Invent, VMworld and other conferences. And when they…share the story, it helps for all groups, not just the infrastructure group, to learn to understand the value of what IT is bringing to the table. It helps partners to be able to communicate back to their customer the value that they brought in terms of either labor savings, cost savings, but also increased agility. And it improves morale.”

After sharing MIT’s experience with VMware Cloud on AWS, AWS now has a line of educational institutions that want to follow suit, according to Carter.

“A couple weeks ago, we were talking to another educational institution, and they told us that they had been working for three years to refactor their apps to get them over to the cloud,” she said.
