    • Why Cloud Computing is Changing Your Job, Career and Team
      Why Cloud Computing is Changing Your Job, Career and Team Peter van Eijk, Head Coach, Club Cloud Computing Recorded: Dec 6 2018 9:00 am UTC 38 mins
    • Cloud computing is a disruptive change in the way we organize information technology. Yet, it is the inevitable result of many years of development. The amount of technology that we manage is growing at staggering rates, forcing us to change the way we handle that.

      That new way is the true essence of cloud and understanding that will enable you and your team to excel at fast and secure cloud adoption.

      Cloud doesn’t just replace existing ways of running IT, but it also facilitates new applications and approaches. The webinar gives some examples.

      Finally, you will uncover some learning resources to enable you to drive this change to you own benefit and the benefit of your team.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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:
      Mike is a TOGAF and SAFe certified architect specialising in the strategic enterprise and solutions architecture space, with a solid background in integration, application, infrastructure and data architecture.

      He has a proven track record of delivering strategic business goals through business transformation programmes (up to £30M+) with complex interdependencies across the enterprise.

      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

      Andy has a 25 year track record in business communications with a background in senior management roles in Marketing, Sales, and Pre-Sales consultancy. Today Andy leads Mitel Sales and Sales Engineering training initiatives throughout the EMEA and APAC regions.

      This broad experience has given Andy valuable perspectives (both technical and customer use based) for today’s IT and communications leaders and technicians.

      Andy has taken part in some major industry milestones including deploying the first high speed network for the Government and being the design authority on one of the world’s largest switch networks.

    • Interoperability and Portability for Cloud Computing: A Guide
      Interoperability and Portability for Cloud Computing: A Guide John Meegan and Mike Edwards, Cloud Standards Customer Council (CSCC) Recorded: Nov 15 2016 4:00 pm UTC 55 mins
    • 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.

      2018 Tech Trends: Serverless, Machine Learning, Edge Computing Janakiram MSV, Cloud Computing Analyst, Advisor, and Architect Recorded: Apr 25 2018 6:00 pm UTC 33 mins
    • 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
