    Ilyas Iyoob, Director of Advanced Analytics, and Lani Dame, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Recorded: Feb 16 2016 27 mins
    When selecting a cloud provider, many Enterprises choose a couple providers based on factors like cost, independent of the workload. It's not until an issue arises or costs run up that they realize they might not have made the best choice for each application - but the damage has already been done. Rather than guessing, what if you could take a data-driven approach so you can select the best-fit provider for your distinct workloads?

    77 percent of IT professionals are planning to deploy to multiple clouds within the next 12 months, based on a recent Dimensional Research survey. Why the movement to multi-cloud? Organizations are learning not all clouds are created equal and understanding how to identify the right provider and service to strike a balance between cost and capability is key. Maximizing the value of a multi-cloud strategy and building multi-cloud application architectures requires a robust catalog, ability to compare providers against key application characteristics, and way to easily collaborate and design a multi-layered architecture. In this webinar we walk through the identification and design of a multi-layer, multi-cloud architecture highlighting how the planning and design tools from Gravitant can augment current processes and speed the planning and design of a multi-cloud solution.

    Erin Hindman, Cloud Solution Expert, and Lani Dame, Sr. Product Marketing Manager Recorded: Feb 18 2015 42 mins
    Service catalogs have traditionally been focused on delivering internal resources but with the growth of cloud usage, IT must now extend this process to external cloud services. Yet, current service catalog functionality does not match the dynamic nature of cloud or have the fast and easy buying experience users expect, causing a lack in visibility and control for IT.

    Join Gravitant as we talk about a new concept emerging called the service store, which provides users the experience of an app store while being powered by a dynamic service catalog. Learn how using this approach can set the foundation for your cloud strategy in the key areas of multi-provider management, governance, cost visibility, and more.
