I know we don’t normally discuss current events, but this time we felt it necessary. Here at Tidalolutely crucial that we all stand in solidarity against hate and injustice in the US and in the world.

Stay safe everyone.


Partner’s Corner

A big welcome to Blue Turtle Technologies from South Africa as our new migration partner. We expect that their customers will now reap all of the benefits of moving to the cloud much faster now.

Our first All-Virtual Migration Enablement Workshop is kicking off on Tuesday, June 9th from 9:00am until 3:00pm EST. Register now and join us from home while our own David Colebatch walks you through the first 3 phases of the cloud migration process.

Can’t wait? Take a sneak peak at a teaser of the kanban template you’ll walk away from the workshop with, gearing you up for migration with a comprehensive action plan!

Ask David

“Hey David, can you share any best practices about the interview process?” - Mike from Ontario.

Hey Mike,

The interview is one of the best ways to gain insights into your application assessments. Here’s a few tips:

  1. Make sure that BOTH the technical AND the business owner are involved in the same interview.
  2. Pre-Brief your technical leads that the goal is to hear primarily from the business. In some organizations, this might feel uncomfortable (ie this is a technical migration!) but the process and the outcome are worth it.
  3. Keep it short, 15-20 minutes is sufficient
  4. Don’t ask too many questions, we like to keep it around 20
  5. Capture technical data like whether or not they own the source code
  6. Capture security & privacy information like if the app has PII
  7. Capture the value to the business unit, and
  8. Finally, record the entire process. We like to store the recording right on the application record in the Tidal platform.

I hope you found this useful! It’s a great way to build business stakeholder confidence in your migration - people and the change management fundamentals at play.

Keep the questions coming!
