Connecting Clouds: Getting There is ALL the Battle

The cloud-powered enterprise is powerful, flexible, agile -- and vulnerable. Its forgotten Achilles' Heel, for many organizations: the network.

Using multiple clouds to juggle the work of the organization is now standard operating procedure, but a failure to take into account cloud's impact on WAN and Internet links, and to manage the flow of data among clouds, can lead to skyrocketing costs and serious capacity crunches.

Join Nemertes Research's John Burke as he shows you where the pain points lie, and the technologies that can help you eliminate the problems.

  • WAN Economics: The Business of Disrupting Your WAN Recorded: Sep 19 2018 59 mins
    John Burke, CIO and Principal Research Analyst, Nemertes Research
    Digital Transformation initiatives often hinge on providing new and exciting services to staff or to customers across the WAN and the Internet. Engineering a WAN for continuous and more rapid change is key to enabling ongoing transformational efforts. And yet, for most companies, the WAN is among the pieces of the infrastructure hardest to change, both for technological reasons and due to the constraints on link provisioning by carriers.

    This webinar will focus on how SD-WAN provides the WAN that Digital Transformation efforts require, through its combination of centralized policy management, automation, zero-touch provisioning, and the ability to work with many links across differing media from different providers.

    Moreover, all of this puts renewed focus on choice of platform and on the economics of wide-area networking: How much does it cost to connect a site to a WAN? What technologies are easiest, fastest, best performing? Which vendors provide the best technology, service, and value?

    The webinar will also debut data from the Nemertes 2018-19 WAN Economics Research Study, including MPLS, Ethernet, wavelength, and Internet service costs; enterprise users’ ratings of their connectivity providers and data on their ability to deliver, and deliver on time; and a peek at the updated Nemertes Enterprise SD-WAN cost model.

  • Best Practices for Protecting Enterprise Data Recorded: Aug 28 2018 53 mins
    John Burke, CIO and Principal Research Analyst, Nemertes Research
    Thanks to cloud computing, the proliferation of endpoints, the emergence of new technologies and paradigms like IoT and Blockchain, enterprise data protection has undergone a paradigm shift. The challenge is no longer simply to classify and lock down structured data in protected on-premise environments. Today enterprise data managers need to protect data of all sorts (structured, unstructured, ephemeral, and permanent) wherever it resides: On the cloud, in end users’ endpoint devices, and in IoT networks and analytics platforms.

    Moreover, it’s a challenge that must be addressed: effective data management is in the critical path for most, if not all, of today’s most important strategic initiatives, including Digital Transformation, Zero Trust Security, and the move towards Agile and DevOps business processes. Without solid data management and protection, all these initiatives will fail.

    This webinar draws from Nemertes’ groundbreaking research into the foundational technologies of Digital Transformation, Security, and Risk Management to deliver best practices for protecting data. Based on our unique Nemertes Maturity Model ™, we’ll show what companies are doing to protect data in current and future environments. Attendees will learn how to position themselves on the maturity model, and come away with a series of customized next for moving towards better data protection in their environments.

    Robin Gareiss, President & Founder, Nemertes Research
    The price you pay for your UCC subscription, software, servers, or licenses is only part (and often, a small part) of your overall costs for UCC. And there are differences depending on your selected architecture and vendor.

    Nemertes has researched what companies actually spend on UCC for 14 years now. In this webinar, we will share some of the key metrics you should consider when selecting a UCC provider—along with real-world data on what it costs to operate various providers. We will cover:

    • What are the differences in operational costs, by size of rollout, for select providers?
    • How do those costs change if you decide on a cloud vs. on-premise rollout?
    • What are the top 5 questions I should ask in my UCC RFP?
