Elevance Health: What a successful cloud journey looks like

The journey to cloud can be fraught with pitfalls, but there are many true success stories out there. In this episode, David Linthicum talks with Elevance Health's CTO Amish Patel about his organization’s cloud journey—and its ongoing success, despite many challenges along the way. For Amish, success is tied to reducing multi-cloud complexity with standardization, automation, orchestration, and a unified view of capabilities—and by creating a supportive, developer-friendly cloud culture.


The ability to kind of think differently in how we're going to remove a lot of this redundancy that exists in these multi-cloud solutions...seems to be the path going forward.

Amish Patel is the Chief Technology Officer at Elevance Health. He is responsible for advancing Elevance Health’s cloud journey, technology platforms, and exponential engineering to create the next generation of innovative digital capabilities.



Hitting the cloud complexity wall—and hopping over it

If you're like many other companies, your multi-cloud journey has hit a complexity wall that can increase costs and reduce value. One key to solving cloud complexity lies in abstraction and automation.
