With aggressive goals in place...various GE sub-businesses were tasked with migrating application infrastructures to cloud based solutions. As the company shifted from highly contracted IT services to GE Badged employees, information pertaining to application architectures and business case were challenging. Maintaining forward momentum with cloud migration was accomplished through the methodical transformation routines which included portfolio and tech stack evaluation for thousands of applications. The Corporate EA team established the methodology and drove the effort to resolution existing infrastrutures.
Progress for each subbusiness unit was tracked and dashboarded for leadership.
During 2016, approximately 240 Corporate applications we successfully refactored to take advantage of cloud resiliency as well as shift infrastructure dependency to operational expence and away from capital expenditures.
