CASE STUDY Deadline-Driven Cloud Migration Whether the goal is to modernize inf rastructure, move off-premises or reduce costs, many organizations are evaluating a move to the cloud. Navisite, a modern managed cloud service provider, has over a decade of experience helping organizations move Oracle workloads to the cloud to achieve these goals efficiently and on time. In this Oracle-to-Amazon Web Services (AWS) case study, we feature one such example: Warner Music Group (WMG). WMG is home to a collection of the best- known record labels in the music industry, as well as Warner Chappell Music, one of the world's leading music publishers. In the fall of 2018, WMG's new senior vice president of Global Inf rastructure and Security, John Remo, was focused on evaluating opportunities for IT modernization while reducing costs. However, a second challenge soon emerged: WMG needed to move out of its Burbank, California, data center within just a few months. The goal was to address both initiatives with one cohesive IT strategy that centered on moving to AWS, where WMG could take full advantage of the efficiencies and cost benefits of the public cloud. Getting there, however, would require the expertise of a trusted partner who could help navigate the time constraints and inherent complexities involved with moving legacy systems to the cloud. Many of the systems housed in Burbank, including artist royalty calculation applications and financial and ERP systems, were running on Oracle databases and Solaris systems—which meant it would Increased efficiencies Modernized IT operations Improved management With the help of Navisite, WMG not only successfully migrated legacy systems out of the Burbank data center and onto AWS, but did it ahead of the deadline. 1-855-739-3227 | Navisite Manages Oracle/Solaris-to-AWS Cloud Migration for Major Music Company
