Cloud Economics in a Time of Crisis

Presented by

Panel of Experts including David Totten, Microsoft, David Campbell, Goldman Sachs and John Capello, Nasuni

About this talk

Moving to a cloud strategy is the most effective way to break free of outdated IT practices and the financial constraints they put on a business, particularly during these uncertain times. Unfortunately, building a business justification for the cloud is not always as straightforward as it seems, often relying on false apples-to-oranges comparisons. What is often missed is that cloud solutions replace many existing hardware, equipment, and physical space expenses, and reduce “soft costs” with intangible benefits for employees and IT. Cloud initiatives can also harbor new, hidden costs on their own. In this live panel, leading industry experts with extensive cloud expertise will walk you through: • How to ensure your TCO and ROI models are built correctly and make an ‘apples to apples’ comparison • Uncovering and exploring your existing hard and soft costs that will be impacted by moving to the cloud • Understanding the financial impact of moving from a CapEx to a subscription based OpEx model Speakers John Capello, Vice President of Product Strategy, Nasuni David Campbell, Managing Director, Goldman Sachs David Totten, Chief Technology Officer US Partner Ecosystem, Microsoft Moderator Krischel Crawley, Vice President Sales - West, Nasuni
