    • Creating a Multi-Cloud Buying Strategy
      Creating a Multi-Cloud Buying Strategy Meg Ramsey, Vice President, Cloud Services Product Management, Sungard Availability Services Recorded: Oct 17 2018 3:00 pm UTC 47 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.

    • 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.

      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

    • 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:

    • 85% of organisations are committed to a multi-cloud architecture. The other 15% are probably doing it by accident. However, with every additional cloud comes increased operational complexity, a new set of interfaces, and another potential security loophole to worry about.

      In this webinar, you will learn:
      • 5 key principles including abstraction, standardisation, and automation ‒ the new imperatives for network operations
      • How planning for a multi-cloud architecture will help you avoid the pitfalls of disparate environments across multiple cloud providers

    • Why bringing communications (and not just your computing) into the cloud matters
      Why bringing communications (and not just your computing) into the cloud matters Global Cloud Solutions Specialist at Mitel Recorded: Oct 17 2018 9:00 am UTC 49 mins
    • The conversation about the transition to a Cloud-first world is often dominated by Cloud computing but business communications is one of the most affected areas of this transformation.

      The analyst firm MZA predicts that the value of the hosted cloud market will more than triple by 2022 to $7.2 billion worldwide with 2.5x growth in the number of Cloud users.

      IT leaders are increasingly having to do more with less while simultaneously turning their IT and communications infrastructure into something that drives growth. This is happening against a background of changing models of work and the need to continuously improve the customer experience.

      As part of a quest to make life easier for the IT leader of today we will explore why it’s important to also consider your business communications.

      - Why bringing your communications and not just your computing into the cloud matters
      - The relevance of cloud to improving the customer experience
      - How collaboration is boosted in a unified communications environment
      - What paths exist on your journey to the cloud including on-premises, hybrid and cloud
