  • Creating a Multi-Cloud Buying Strategy
    Creating a Multi-Cloud Buying Strategy Meg Ramsey, Vice President, Cloud Services Product Management, Sungard Availability Services Recorded: Oct 17 2018 47 mins
    CEOs and boards are demanding their IT departments pursue a cloud-first, or all-in cloud, strategy, but not all clouds are created equal. A multi-cloud strategy is most prudent for enterprise businesses but to do so different business, system, application and cost drivers must be considered. In this presentation we will help you create a strategic buying framework for pursuing a multi-cloud strategy that pulls in both public cloud and private cloud services.

  • Building a Cloud-First Policy in a Hybrid Environment
    Building a Cloud-First Policy in a Hybrid Environment Mike Openshaw, Senior Enterprise Architect, 6point6 Recorded: Oct 17 2018 38 mins
    Cloud computing has become synonymous with the digital agenda. Looking across the 2018 IT estate, cloud is no longer conspicuous by its presence but by its absence. Gartner projects the market size and growth of the cloud service industry at nearly three times the growth of the overall IT services industry through 2022. Cloud is agnostic of industry sector, having already established a material foothold in banks, schools, governments and healthcare.

    In this webinar, we will explore what a cloud-first policy means for you no matter where you are on your cloud journey, with a focus on both where your remaining on-premise IT estate sits and how this fits into a cloud-first world.

    About the speaker:
    Mike is a TOGAF and SAFe certified architect specialising in the strategic enterprise and solutions architecture space, with a solid background in integration, application, infrastructure and data architecture.

    He has a proven track record of delivering strategic business goals through business transformation programmes (up to £30M+) with complex interdependencies across the enterprise.

  • How to Develop a Cloud-First Strategy with a Cloud-Native Approach
    How to Develop a Cloud-First Strategy with a Cloud-Native Approach Simon Ratcliffe, CIO Advisor & Mentor, IT Evangelist, Ensono & Cloud Industry Forum Recorded: Oct 17 2018 38 mins
    There is much talk in the tech community about the best approach to adopting a cloud first strategy and which solutions best fit organisations.

    Multi-cloud, hybrid cloud, cloud first, cloud native are all options but too many organisations miss the critical factor. Any technology strategy requires that the organisational culture and the people match the technology approach. A cloud first technology strategy requires a very different mindset to more traditional approaches and adopting a different culture and approach and leading a team of people in this world is very different. Building technology without the underpinning cultural change invariably results in less than successful cloud adoption.

    In this webinar, we will examine some of the simple changes that can be made to the culture and structure of an IT function to create a foundation for a more successful implementation of a cloud first strategy.

  • Getting Ready for a Multi-cloud future with Containers and Kubernetes
    Getting Ready for a Multi-cloud future with Containers and Kubernetes Ritesh Patel, Co-Founder & VP of Products at Nirmata Recorded: Oct 16 2018 50 mins
    For the last few years, there has been an ongoing debate about multi-cloud/hybrid cloud vs single cloud approach. However, there is increasing evidence that the future will be multi-cloud. Data from a recent survey released by Forrester Research indicates:

    62% of public cloud adopters are using 2+ unique cloud environments/platforms

    74% of enterprises describe their strategy as hybrid/multi-cloud today

    So, the question is what does this mean for your applications? Does adopting multi-cloud increase management complexity? How can you effectively control and manage spend?

    In this webinar, we will discuss the benefits and challenges of a multi-cloud approach. We will see how containers are becoming a key building block for enabling application portability and how Kubernetes is becoming the toolbox across clouds. Finally, we will discuss real-world best practices for enabling multi-cloud deployments.

    About the speaker:

  • How to Integrate Cloud-Native Apps with Next-Gen Cloud Environments
    How to Integrate Cloud-Native Apps with Next-Gen Cloud Environments Simon Ratcliffe, CIO Advisor & Mentor, IT Evangelist, Ensono & Cloud Industry Forum Recorded: Oct 16 2018 33 mins
    We are already on the edge of a new paradigm in IT where developers can focus purely on their code and the applications are delivered by the cloud provider who delivers computing power as required.

    Whilst this approach works for cloud native applications, how do we integrate these next generation clouds with the legacy systems we already have? How do we create a serverless environment after years of creating servers and how do we connect seemingly un-connectable systems such as mainframes into this new paradigm?

    In this webinar we examine the tools and options now available and soon to be available in the next generation of cloud computing and seek to understand how these connect back to the current world and establish some possible journeys for the legacy applications into the next generation of cloud.

  • [Ep.21] Founders Spotlight: Matt Angerer, Founder, VerticalRent
    [Ep.21] Founders Spotlight: Matt Angerer, Founder, VerticalRent Matt Angerer, Founder, VerticalRent Recorded: Oct 3 2018 48 mins
    In 2014, the founders of VerticalRent (www.verticalrent.com) were featured by Microsoft BizSpark for their early achievements with launching the industry leading rental property management and tenant screening software platform for property managers and landlords. In that article, Microsoft wrote: Matt Angerer is an IT professional by day and a landlord by night. At all times, he has an entrepreneur’s heart and mindset.

    A lot has changed since 2014. VerticalRent has more than quadrupled in the sheer number of landlords using the platform from every corner of the United States. The one thing that has not changed is that VerticalRent remains a small operation without employees that epitomizes the concept of a Lean Startup. If you're an IT professional by day who has been toiling with the idea of launching your own "side-gig", you'll want to tune into this BrightTalk webinar to learn how Matt Angerer, Founder of VerticalRent, started with a simple idea and scaled it into a platform that services over 25,000 landlords and nearly 50,000 renters across the United States in 5 short-years -- all while keeping his day job, running his rental properties, and financially supporting a family of 4.

    Matt will share with you the techniques he learned that allowed him to balance his personal and professional life to create a software as a service business. In this Webinar, he'll cover:
    - The Learn Start Up Mentality - What it Means and How to Live it Day by Day
    - Why a Slow-Growth Approach is Better for Certain Personality Types
    - How Anyone Can Create a SaaS Platform to Create Side Revenue
    - Why SaaS is More Lucrative in the Long-Term than Consulting
    - The Darkside of Entrepreneurship and Why Its Necessary

    Join us on Wednesday, October 3rd at 9am PT / 12pm ET for this live interview!
