  •  The difference between working in a datacenter and operating in the cloud.

  •  Patterns and anti-patterns for organizing cloud operating models.

  •  Best practices for making the organizational change required for a move to the cloud.

  •  Why site reliability engineering is essential for cloud operations.

  •  How to improve organizational performance through value stream mapping.
