For organizations with mission-critical websites, the topic of re-platforming the Content Management System can cause significant unrest – both from the business and the IT teams. Add to the already sensitive situation, the need to move from the current hosting infrastructure to a new cloud provider – and you have an extremely daunting series of tasks.

In this webinar, you’ll hear from Maxim and SEMI about how they successfully completed both a Drupal re-platform, and a migration to Acquia’s hosting environment, built on Amazon EC2, in extremely tight time frames. Attendees of this webinar will:

• Gain best practices on how to navigate internal discussions about re-platforming and migrating to the cloud
• Learn how these organizations were able to meet their website re-launch goals on a tight timeframe
• Obtain an overview of the significant ROI both organizations have been able to see as a result of their efforts

In addition, Jeff Barr from Amazon Web Services will join us to share best practices on how organizations can make the business case to move from existing cloud, on-premise, or co-location models to Amazon’s cloud infrastructure.
