Theme of the meeting: Moving Towards the New Hybrid Reality of the Cloud

If you are thinking about the evolution of your applications and data towards the Cloud, you should, over the course of the next few months make some very important strategic decisions.

For example:

  • Migrate certain services towards the public Cloud in a coordinated, transparent and secure way.
  • Create your own private Cloud infrastructure. Move from virtualization to IT orchestration, automation and self-service.
  • Implement an agile IT infrastructure adapted to the needs of your development team.
  • Streamline your applications. Move towards a SaaS, PaaS approach, use container technologies and new microservices architecture.
  • In short, implement governance, management and security measures to stay in control.

Before making any choice, you must first understand and most importantly know the criterias on which you should base your decisions. Allow us, in a single morning, to help you efficiently unravel all the concepts and gain a better understanding of the Cloud market trends.

Primary Topics Covered
  • Governance, management, and multi-cloud environments
  • Evolution of the role played by IT teams
  • Application modernization and streamlining plan
  • Create the foundation for a Hybrid Cloud approach
  • Prepare your company for policy-based management and IT automation
