    • 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 10:00 am UTC 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.

    • 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 12:00 pm UTC 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.

    • Cloud Transformation: Security in the Age of Digital Disruption
      Cloud Transformation: Security in the Age of Digital Disruption Gary Marsden, Senior Director of Data Protection Services at Gemalto Recorded: Oct 16 2018 3:00 pm UTC 54 mins
    • While the technological and commercial advances of the cloud have created significant opportunities for enterprises, service providers and IT vendors alike, this cloud-driven transformation has also undone conventional approaches to data security and created compliance challenges when it comes to data control and ownership.

      These changes have unwittingly drawn us into a realm of increasing threat vectors, poor security practices and bad actors. From reducing cost of ownership to empowering IT decision making across the value chain, it is safe to say that the cloud means that life will never be the same for anyone.

      During this webinar we will:
      - Look at the challenges facing today's IT and security teams;
      - See how this wave of disruption can be overcome using ever advancing automation, processing and intelligence technologies that can be used to build and deliver security an increasingly diverse IT landscape; and
      - Look at how security will need to evolve in the wake of digital transformation.

      Key Considerations of an Effective Cloud Strategy Matt Nolan - Senior Cloud Architect, Red Hat and Stephane Lefrere - Director, Cloud infrastructure Practice, Red Hat Recorded: May 22 2018 9:00 am UTC 41 mins
    • One of the most pressing questions enterprises have to answer is: “Should we move to the cloud or stay on-premise?” For many, the answer is a blend of both. Determining your organization’s cloud strategy can be complex.
