    • Creating a Multi-Cloud Buying Strategy
      Creating a Multi-Cloud Buying Strategy Meg Ramsey, Vice President, Cloud Services Product Management, Sungard Availability Services Upcoming: Oct 17 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 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.

      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. 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

    • Advanced & Frictionless Security in a Multi-Cloud Environment
      Advanced & Frictionless Security in a Multi-Cloud Environment Anuj Sawani, Product Marketing Manager Recorded: Jul 17 2018 5:00 pm UTC 62 mins
    • 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.

    • The Top Ten Trends in Private Cloud
      The Top Ten Trends in Private Cloud Bobby Patrick, CMO, HP Cloud and Lauren Nelson, Senior Analyst, Forrester Research Recorded: Dec 11 2014 8:30 pm UTC 63 mins
    • Cloud is an essential component of every enterprise tech management strategy, but sifting through market noise to design a robust cloud strategy isn't easy. Despite reported high private cloud adoption, Forrester continues to see enterprises struggle with their private cloud build-out. Success with a private cloud comes only through embracing the true cloud model of self-service, full automation, and business and developer agility. But most technology managers lack enough hands-on experience with public clouds to truly understand the end user experience priorities and how to translate them to their own environments. Their focus is less on developer enablement and cloud-specific values and more on optimizing IT efficiency against tech management metrics. The result is developer rejection. This report outlines the top 10 facts every tech management pro should know about private clouds to avoid over-investment, missed deadlines, and strategies that limit better engagement with your internal customers. Plus, attendees will receive the Forrester white paper, Top 10 Facts Every Tech Management Leader Should Know About Private Cloud.
