Critics have likened cloud computing to flying in an airplane, in that loss of service could be catastrophic to an organization that trusts its data in the cloud. For those who have chosen the cloud computing route for their business, this session will liken cloud implementation to buying a car. Just as a new car purchase requires research and preparation to get the highest quality product at the best price, organizations should do their homework to ensure effective cloud service that delivers high availability and good performance.
The session will start by examining the most common concerns expressed by enterprises when making decisions around cloud computing, including possible downtime and loss of data control. With the risks carefully delineated, we will then outline the steps to the most effective cloud solution possible such as prioritizing services by tiers, establishing recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point objectives (RPOs), and the important questions to ask regarding data handling and how to negotiate favorable SLAs.

About the Presenter:
Rob Whiteley was previously at Forrester Research as an industry analyst, research director and operation effectiveness leader for the past 10 years.
In an inter-connected world where technology has no boundaries, two or more emerging technologies across industries may converge in various scenarios, leading to unexplored applications or business models. For example, technologies like next-generation stem cells, additive manufacturing and nano-coatings may converge to give rise to "personalized cosmeceuticals," which are cosmetics customized based on phenotype and genotype of the user. Unexplored business models like these may become the next disruptive billion-dollar idea for investors, corporate executives and R&D professionals. The webinar will discuss key trends that drive these convergence scenarios and potential market challenges that should be noted while considering these opportunities.Read more >
Movies have created much hype around artificial intelligence, which has distorted the understanding of the technology for people, businesses, and government. Most people picture a dystopian society when they think about artificial intelligence, but the truth is light years away from this notion. In reality, the true capabilities of AI devices don’t meet general expectations. But in the past decade, the industry has witnessed significant development in terms of technology and the skills that are pushing the boundaries of AI capabilities. Newer innovations in machine learning algorithms (deep learning) and computing technologies (neuromorphic or quantum computing) show promise for AI. But is the public or government ready for this future? Are businesses aware of what needs to be done to become AI ready?Read more >
