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.
We are already on the edge of a new paradigm in IT where developers can focus purely on their code and the applications are delivered by the cloud provider who delivers computing power as required.
Whilst this approach works for cloud native applications, how do we integrate these next generation clouds with the legacy systems we already have? How do we create a serverless environment after years of creating servers and how do we connect seemingly un-connectable systems such as mainframes into this new paradigm?
In this webinar we examine the tools and options now available and soon to be available in the next generation of cloud computing and seek to understand how these connect back to the current world and establish some possible journeys for the legacy applications into the next generation of cloud.
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.

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.

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

Version 3.0 of Security for Cloud Computing: Ten Steps to Ensure Success has just been released for publication. As organizations consider a move to cloud computing, it is important to weigh the potential security benefits and risks involved and set realistic expectations with cloud service providers. The aim of this guide to help enterprise information technology (IT) and business decision makers analyze the security implications of cloud computing on their business.
In this webinar, authors of the paper will discuss:
• Security, privacy and data residency challenges relevant to cloud computing
• Considerations that organizations should weigh when migrating data, applications, and infrastructure to a cloud computing environment
• Threats, technology risks, and safeguards for cloud computing environments
• A cloud security assessment to help customers assess the security capabilities of cloud service providers
The Practical Guide to Cloud Computing is the CSCC’s seminal deliverable outlining key definitions, characteristics, and benefits of cloud computing. The heart of the guide is a comprehensive 10-step “Roadmap for Cloud Computing” containing guidance and strategies for the successful migration and deployment of cloud computing applications.
In this webinar, the authors will review each of the 10 steps in the guide and highlight the technical changes made to this latest version including the emergence of hybrid cloud, containers, serverless computing and microservices architectures.

The topics of interoperability and portability are significant considerations in relation to the use of cloud services, but there is confusion and misunderstanding of exactly what this entails.
Interoperability and Portability for Cloud Computing: A Guide provides a clear definition of interoperability and portability and how these relate to various aspects of cloud computing and to cloud services.
This webinar will describe interoperability and portability in terms of a set of common cloud computing scenarios. This approach assists in demonstrating that both interoperability and portability have multiple aspects and relate to a number of different components in the architecture of cloud computing, each of which needs to be considered in its own right. The aim is to give both cloud service customers and cloud service providers guidance in the provision and selection of cloud services indicating how interoperability and portability affect the cost, security and risk involved.

Application development as we know it is changing due to advances in serverless, edge computing, and machine learning. This disruption is enabling developers to take advantage of vastly improved compute economics, new use cases that span from the cloud to the edge, and smarter algorithms. These trends will become even more prevalent in 2018.
Join Janakiram MSV, a well-respected analyst, advisor, and architect in the cloud computing space as he shares his take on:
Serverless – How, driven by boundless scalability and a pay-as-you-consume model, serverless function-as-a-service is well on the path to becoming the new cloud computing standard
Machine Learning – How cloud providers are enabling access to the fastest graphics processing units and storage to enable development of machine learning models that make applications smarter
Edge Computing – How, moving intelligence to the edge, and enabling smarter, quicker, and more cost-effective decisions, is starting to take hold
One of the biggest barriers to cloud adoption for IT organizations is the inability to move applications to and from the cloud. HC3 Cloud Unity is a collaboration between Google and Scale Computing, to solve this problem. By linking Scale’s hyperconverged HC3 on-prem with HC3 on Google Cloud Platform a massive two-way speedway has been created that means organizations no longer have to use or create different apps for the cloud, they can utilize their apps created for on-prem to run in the Google Cloud, which will be a game changer for end users, channel partners and MSPs globally.
• Learn how to use resources in the cloud and on-prem simultaneously
• Understand how a true hybrid model works
• Seamlessly bridge an on-prem local LAN with the private virtual network on GCP
What is Cloud Computing? - and what are the typical issues our customers are facing when rolling out cloud computing and how to deal with them in a structured approach?
