Knowing the right route to take when starting on your journey to the cloud is hard. The cloud can unlock a huge number of benefits both commercial and technical for organisations big and small. IT professionals are under pressure to make it happen, and quickly. But many organisations are still tackling that crucial first step. Do you lift & shift? Or go fully native? It’s often a toss-up between risk or reward.
In the travel market, meeting customer expectations is key to success. Customers expect to be able to browse, engage with content and book their holiday with ease. If they can’t, you risk losing out on their business. A* Travel, one of the leading providers of tailor-made holidays across the world, wanted to start their journey in the cloud to improve their website speed, increase SEO rankings, and ultimately the number of conversions they could achieve through the site.
