  • Creating Modern Business Foundations upon Hybrid IT Infrastructures Recorded: Feb 15 2018 50 mins
    Todd Traver, Vice President, IT Optimization and Strategy, Uptime Institute
    Modern businesses are being transformed into digital businesses. To do so, IT is being re-imagined to span hybrid infrastructures; including multiple data centers, co-location facilities and cloud service providers. This hybrid approach has many benefits including cost savings, but can increase the overall difficulty in supporting such environments to deliver a predictable level of IT services. We’ll discuss one methodology designed to assess your current risk profile and spot vulnerabilities.
