With enterprise cloud adoption on the rise, CIOs are faced with creating a cloud strategy that will deliver greater business value and innovation. And while most are turning to hybrid cloud, this model does not factor in legacy infrastructure or give business users the unified experience they demand. The true solution is an integrated, multi-sourced operating model called Hybrid IT. The 451 Group VP of Research William Fellows shares why moving to the Hybrid IT model is the most complete approach and best practices for selecting the process and tools to get started.Read more >

But how do you stay in control of your data? Through this webcast, you'll see how IBM clients and Business Partners are taking advantage of hybrid clouds, and how they're resolving the important issues of data management, data protection, and data security.
With datasets continuing to grow larger and cloud computing getting easier to set up and use, one of the biggest challenges facing IT departments responsible for managing Apache Hadoop environments is how to efficiently support and enable data storage. The main choice for moving data to cloud-based Hadoop deployments is to use HDFS, but efficiencies and processes have not gotten to a level that is both sustainable and repeatable while being affordable for IT organizations.
In this 30-minute webinar, speaker Scott Jeschonek will look at the current best practices of using HDFS and Hadoop completely in the cloud. Next, he will highlight the limitations of this approach by contrasting classic on-premises Hadoop with Hadoop in the cloud, suggesting that the two are not the same. Finally, a new approach will be proposed that enables the use of Hadoop compute clusters while data is kept in its on-premises source instead of loading into the cloud. Participants will be able to consider a "Hybrid Hadoop" workflow that provides the economics needed for replication with more flexibility in the data source location, and the efficiency of eliminating the load process before cloud compute jobs.

Hybrid WAN has existed for over a decade connecting branch offices via both private WAN (i.e., MPLS) and encrypted VPN over the Internet. Until now, hybrid WAN has been unable to deliver a seamless, simple and quality experience for Enterprise branch offices.
SD-WAN enables quality, simplicity and maximum throughput by combining hybrid WAN with software-defined networking (SDN) and cloud-based principals at scale. This webinar will explain how an existing or new hybrid WAN can be made cost effective, throughput optimized and highly reliable using SD-WAN.
Cloud was initially pitched as a way to reduce waste and boost agility, but for many, agility has been the main gain. The boost to budgets is often only felt initially by shifting the spend from CAPEX to OPEX, but without careful management those utility bills can become crippling. This session looks a number of ways that are proven to reduce costs with some real-world examples. Even if cost saving isn’t on your agenda, the same tools and processes will also help you to scale quicker and efficiently extend your service catalogue.
The 5 topics we will cover will help you to:
Reduce your spending on infrastructure and licenses
Help you to reduce your Opex cloud billing
Simplify hybrid provisioning processes
Enable new cloud use-cases to keep LOB owners happy
We look forward to seeing you at the session!

Join us on Wednesday, 20th January and learn how you can implement new data centre modernisation projects efficiently, identify and remove data protection blind spots and ease the transition of your applications to the cloud.
Heather Hinton, CTO for IBM Security and Compliance Architecture & Innovation, Sesh Murthy, Cloud Raxak CTO, and Raghuram Yeluri, Intel Security Architect, will discuss how to secure applications across the hybrid cloud through automated compliance. Automated security compliance can reduce cloud security costs up to 50% while also reducing the risk of a security breach. They will discuss the best ways to leverage cloud computing, while staying compliant with the security requirements of regulated industries including financial services, retail, healthcare, and more.
The Hybrid cloud is being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. A recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy, and 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS--software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The challenge in moving workloads to the Cloud, has been the cost and complexity of ensuring initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical to maintaining positive ROI.
Raxak Protect is an automated security compliance SaaS platform and managed service, that enables cloud apps to be deployed securely, quickly, cost-effectively, and without human error, across both private and public clouds.
In this webinar, IBM and Cloud Raxak will describe how:
1. To secure IBM dedicated and shared hybrid cloud solutions using Raxak Protect automated compliance.
2. To deliver audit-ready evidence of security compliance for any workload including regulated workloads in finance (FFIEC), healthcare (HIPAA) and Retail (PCI).
3. Raxak Protect leverages hardware features like Intel Cloud Integrity Technology to create an immutable root of trust for assured compliance.
