Title: NN Group journey to public cloud – finding the right balance between freedom and control

About 4 years ago, NN Group, a 2 billion euro result multi-national financial services company with more than 15,000 employees, embarked on a cloud journey. But, what started as a cloud program evolved soon into a huge transformation of how we do IT at NN, introducing new challenges and opportunities regarding freedom and control.

During this session we will share our most important and expensive lessons learned and will zoom in on topics like: how to find the right balance between freedom for the application team and being in control of our IT systems and data, how to efficiently design a cloud platform for scale and speed while maintaining the necessary level of security and compliance, and what change is needed on an organizational level to make this transition to cloud. We will also show how we implemented our security controls in our AWS and Azure environment.
