Ready, Set…
Remodel Infrastructure!

You shouldn’t need a hammer to remodel your application infrastructure. We will discuss trends, strategies and frameworks as you drive real value from your cloud strategy

ic-calender August 20th, 9am PT

It’s Monday morning - your boss just informed you of a mandate to migrate all workloads to the cloud. What does that even mean? In this session, we’ll provide you with frameworks and some stories, some more scary than others, to inform your strategy on defining the challenge and planning for success.

Research shows the dominance of on-premises IT as the primary workload execution venue will diminish over the next few years in favor of public cloud environments. However, some IT will remain on-premises, particularly infrastructure that supports mission-critical legacy applications. Join us as we explore findings with Melanie Posey of 451 Research and discuss the frameworks and methodologies forward-looking IT leaders are embracing to drive transformation, innovation, business value and competitive differentiation is highly IT-dependent, and increasingly cloud and data centric organizations.
