Topic for the April 10 Forum: Toward the New Hybrid Cloud Reality

If you are currently thinking about implementing your own cloud infrastructure, or even if you are looking to further enhance the governance around data and services placed in the public cloud, this event is for you! 


4 main themes will be discussed


  • Multi-cloud governance and management
  • The changing role of IT
  • Building the foundations of a hybrid cloud approach
  • Operation simplification through IT automation


The hybrid cloud is a factor for success and a central element in the digital transformation of several companies recognized today as the leaders of their industries. It is becoming an unavoidable issue for organizations to think about and develop a hybrid cloud approach strategy in order to preserve their competitiveness in the upcoming years.

This so-called hybrid vision or “Software-Defined Data Center,” gives organizations the agility and innovation capacity to support the modernization of their way of doing things and the transformation of their activities.

  • What will be the best cloud strategy for your business?
  • What role does your team currently play in the digital transformation of your business?
  • What are the key success factors of companies that innovate, stand out, and radically transform their industry?
  • How can you build your own internal cloud based on the SDDC approach to meet the new demands of business groups and your developers?
  • How can this foundation integrate with the services of public cloud providers such as Amazon (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google?
  • How can you establish governance and control data security in a multi-cloud reality?

By participating in the forum, you’ll learn about the latest trends and innovations in enterprise cloud solutions and data center transformation.
