The biggest benefit to using technology like AWS is the ability to react quickly to business needs. CorpInfo allowed our team to hit the ground running.”
Live Nation is the world’s leading live entertainment company comprised of global market leaders such as Artist Nation, Live Nation, Ticketmaster, and Live Nation concerts. When they first decided to explore cloud computing, they looked at multiple vendors, but it became pretty clear that AWS was more mature than the competition.
At the time, AWS was a relatively new technology. And although the Live Nation team was well-versed in traditional IT, they didn’t have any experience with AWS or the public cloud. They brought in CorpInfo to partner with them on their journey into the cloud. This allowed their team to hit the ground running. They took formal training classes, and had many team members get AWS certifications and help move their applications into AWS. It’s been such a success, that they are now looking at every application they current support and are trying to figure out the best way to build it in AWS.
The Live Nation team is now going straight into production deployments with the goal of getting 100% of their data centers closed by the end of 2016. The biggest benefit to using technology like AWS is the ability to react quickly to business needs. There are other advantages such as Group Security, the fact that all their hardware is now virtualized, and all the many new AWS services launched are available to them. Since Amazon innovates so quickly, the Live Nation team enjoys so many new capabilities in the cloud that just weren’t possible with the old way of doing things.
