      Key considerations of an effective cloud strategy Matt Nolan, senior cloud architect, Red Hat & Stephane Lefrere, director, cloud infrastructure practice, Red Hat Upcoming: Oct 31 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 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. 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

    • Big Data Trends & Oracle Cloud Infrastructure
      Big Data Trends & Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Andrew Reichman, Sr. Director of Cloud Strategy, Oracle Recorded: Sep 22 2017 7:00 pm UTC 36 mins
    • Cloud has changed the game when it comes to data analytics. Previously, organizations had to lock themselves into a particular architecture and level of capacity for three to seven years and do all the lifting themselves. Cloud on the other hand allows them to experiment with different hardware and software options, get more of the solution as a service and scale up and down to meet project spikes and accelerate busy jobs at will. This makes it much more viable for any company to get the advantages of advanced analytics against large data sets, without an oversize IT staff or huge capital investments.

      Oracle cloud is specifically designed to help enterprises take advantage of cloud for data analytics—it offers massive non-variable performance, predictable low cost and broad choice of deployment and software options. Oracle and Qubole work together to deliver a new breed of data platform—capable of taming the scale, performance, cost and complexity issues associated with gaining business insight from data of all types.

      Watch this webinar to understand:
      - Summary of industry trends for big data on the cloud
      - How Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is optimized for big data workloads from a cost, performance and flexibility perspective
      - How Oracle Cloud Big Data solutions compare with on-premises and competing cloud options

    • Map A Monitoring and Management Strategy for Your Cloud
      Map A Monitoring and Management Strategy for Your Cloud David S. Linthicum, Leading Cloud Influencer and Blogger, SVP, Cloud Technology Partners Recorded: Jan 2 2017 5:00 pm UTC 29 mins
    • Monitoring and management of cloud-based production environments is often an afterthought. Why? Because there are so many other aspects to worry about, such as security, cost management, governance, etc. Monitoring often falls by the wayside or it is assumed the native tools from the cloud provider are sufficient for the task. The value of monitoring and management is not just the data points on applications, databases, storage and compute performance, but perhaps more importantly, the trends the tools may be seeing through predictive analytics. Trend analysis means gathering many data points over time and drawing conclusions as to what they mean.

      Join this session with cloud management expert David Linthicum to understand the most important monitoring and management concepts. Topics to be covered will include:
      • The need to span all of the clouds that you’re leveraging – private, public and hybrid.
      • The need to archive historical monitoring data and analyze over time to note trends and predict when problems may arise.
      • The need to pre-program responses to common issues and take automated corrective actions to “self heal” without manual intervention
      • The need to map a cloud management strategy that is right for you and ensure you get things right the first time.

    • Get Your Cloud (Service) Strategy Right!
      Get Your Cloud (Service) Strategy Right! Martin Palmgren, IT Strategy and Transformation Executive @ .Communicate Recorded: Jun 29 2011 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    • As you move to the cloud, ensure that you secure your IT Delivery apabilities with spelled out business objectives to which the IT organisation can deliver with an effective Service Strategy to leverage IT in the execution of the Business Strategy http://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/29211 .

      Where security is important, and I would think twice on the data that I would choose to put on the cloud, Time to Market and Cost Effectiveness are the critical success factors.

      Time to Market should not only include “how fast do we get IT services set” but how can we leverage the business strategy execution with IT as we support the end to end delivery of new products / services to market.
      The impact of Cost Effectiveness can be measured only as Total Cost of Ownership with cost, consumption and chargeback is defined (Cloud Computing: Fluff or Lightening http://www.brighttalk.com/community/it-service-management/webcast/21892 ).

      We also need to define a clear IT Service Strategy with an “IT Business Model” (“This is how we deliver IT services to the business”) and a “Business (IT) Value proposition” (“This is how we support business objectives with services in a time to market perspective”).
