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.

Join David Cuthbertson, CEO of Square Mile Systems, as he takes a deep dive into cloud management. Many senior decision makers have negative feelings regarding the issues of technical teams and don't want to bring them to light - data security, change control, lock in to a supplier who overcharges, proper outage stats, etc.
Just as there is more awareness of outsourcing contract nightmares, many of the same issues apply to cloud providers. Managing change in cloud-based systems is still a relatively new issue as most technical teams don't think about how cloud systems are managed and the potential risks posed by many suppliers without a viable business model.
Audience members are encouraged to send questions to the expert which will be answered during the live session.

For many firms, the migration to public cloud is well underway. Understanding what motivates these migrators and the challenges they face along the way can help you in your own journey.
Join this webinar for a rare look into an emerging group and a glimpse into the future of public cloud. You'll hear about the results of a Forrester Consulting study, commissioned by Red Hat, that looks at these aspects of firms migrating to the cloud:
> Their motivations and challenges.
> The strategies they're adopting for migration.
> What cloud migration in practice looks like.
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. Important considerations must be made around security and compliance requirements, balancing the needs of developers, as well as the existing infrastructure implementations.
In this webinar, we’ll identify multiple considerations you’ll face when starting to think about your cloud strategy and walk through how to manage those critical choices. We’ll cover how to:
- Evaluate the mix of private and public cloud options are best for your business
- Prioritize services for your developers and end users
- Identify new approaches to enable freedom of choice, mobility, and accelerate service delivery
- Define a cloud strategy that accelerates your ability to deliver new applications and innovative solutions

A number of modern, geo-distributed apps are being built in verticals such as retail, finance and SaaS. In an increasingly multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud world, the applications are becoming portable, but the databases are not. Enterprises are seeking to re-platform the data layer for scalability, developer friendliness and cloud-neutrality.
The transactional database tier powering these apps has been a high-latency, hard-to-scale, master-slave RDBMS for a long time. Multi-master configurations or the use of a separate NoSQL DB (for multi-region data distribution) are common solutions. However, none of these solutions achieve the desired business outcomes of high customer satisfaction, increased data protection, and regulatory compliance.
This talk will dive into how it is necessary to unify the best of SQL and NoSQL into one database in order to deliver the above business outcomes, and how YugaByte is helping democratize the transactional database layer by offering a single non-proprietary database that can span public and private clouds. YugaByte’s value proposition is strong for both CIOs, who can avoid cloud vendor lock-in at the database layer, and for developers, who don’t have to re-architect existing applications because of YugaByte’s built-in native compatibility to popular NoSQL and SQL interfaces.
The Webinar is hosted by Fundoo.info along with IITAGH Board Members.
All major cloud providers offer some form of discount for customers who reserve computing power in advance. Think of such reservations as a coupon that you buy in order to lock-in lower rates for your instances over a year or even three years. These reservations can result in savings of 23 percent to 75 percent compared to On Demand rates, so for committed cloud users, they can be a great deal.
There is way to increase your margin through arbitrage. Arbitrage is the purchasing of a reserved instance or instances with the intention of selling them at the On Demand price.
Architecting a secure and well-managed cloud environment goes well above and beyond the technology layers.
Given all of the technology challenges that exist for enterprises related to security, compliance, cost and governance, moving to a cloud architecture must be planned and executed in a responsible manner. It is extremely important to ensure that you are meeting your company’s strategic objectives while maintaining or exceeding your existing technology standards.
During this session, you will learn about how Microsoft Azure can equip you with a full ecosystem of security and management systems. These solutions provide control and visibility into your technology assets – not just the ones in Azure, but also on-premises and within other cloud providers.

This webinar will identify the 7 Barriers to Cloud Adoption and Digital Transformation Success. Participants will learn what the 7 barriers are and gain insights and understanding of why recognizing and overcoming them is so incredibly important.
Multiple cloud studies have revealed that some 82% of organizations have a desire to use cloud to help them simplify IT processes, become more innovative and as a result accelerate time-to-market and time-to- value.
This webinar will not only discuss the 7 barriers but also the cloud journey that most organizations follow which unfortunately results 70% of digital transformation projects to either fail completely, or fail to achieve the desired results, making their cloud efforts a waste of energy, time and money. We want to help organizations what they are up against, how to avoid disappointing experiences and successfully achieve true digital transformation.
There will be time provided to ask questions about overcoming the 7 barriers, what to consider when selecting a cloud model and that the decision shouldn't be based on hardware. It should be based on the successful deployment of cloud applications, securing data, service delivery and providing a premium experience to everyone; administrators, developers, tenants, and end-users.
Since 2013, Cloudistics has exceeded the promises of the IT status quo— public cloud, private cloud, or virtualization— by delivering a private cloud with a premium experience. Our aim is to help organizations break the barriers to cloud adoption and digital transformation success by developing cloud software that unlocks the possibilities and power of cloud for your people.
Today, organizations need higher performance and faster access to the latest innovative technologies in order to grab whatever competitive edge they can. This almost always means going to the cloud.
Unfortunately, in the rush to get there, enterprises can find themselves with data and applications scattered across private and public clouds – often multiple public clouds – spanning IaaS, PaaS and SaaS.
Without the appropriate security and compliance strategy in place, this often results in poor visibility and increased risk. The simple truth is that multi-cloud security isn’t intuitive.
We can make it easier. This webinar will cover:
•Common speed bumps your security and DevOps teams face
•Innovative security strategies to tackle a wide range of cloud risks
•Security automation and integration within the development lifecycle
•Achieving consistent and advanced multi-cloud protections
Register now and learn how to secure your multi-cloud environment with advanced, frictionless protection.
