The Cloud Solution Managers will face-off to Senior Application Owners in the business to understand their current application portfolios and dependencies before developing proposals for selecting the most suitable Cloud solution to transition to. You will then build and architect the migration approach, setting up a project framework and delivering the foundational projects in order to deliver a successful migration. You will therefore be responsible for the overall platform selection and successful migration from on-premise to Cloud.
