Key Considerations of an Effective Cloud Strategy

One of the most pressing questions enterprises have to answer is: “Should we move to the cloud or stay on-premise?” For many, the answer is a blend of both. Determining your organization’s cloud strategy can be complex. Important considerations must be made around security and compliance requirements, balancing the needs of developers, as well as the existing infrastructure implementations.

In this webinar, we’ll identify multiple considerations you’ll face when starting to think about your cloud strategy and walk through how to manage those critical choices. We’ll cover how to:
- Evaluate the mix of private and public cloud options are best for your business
- Prioritize services for your developers and end users
- Identify new approaches to enable freedom of choice, mobility, and accelerate service delivery
- Define a cloud strategy that accelerates your ability to deliver new applications and innovative solutions

  • Business Value of an Agile Platform for Developing Application OpenShift on AWS Nov 26 2019 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Gary Chen, Research Director, Software Defined Compute
    The Business Value of an Agile and Flexible Platform for Developing and Running Applications with OpenShift on AWS.

    Enterprises are rapidly moving to containers to develop and run their applications.Containers may be themselves a singular and simple foundational technology, but they have brought with them a large range of inherent attributes and benefits that taken together define a full container platform:

    - Highly automated and agile orchestration with Kubernetes
    - Transitioning from monolithic application architectures to microservices, which allows greater development efficiency and operational scalability and agility
    - Shifting from waterfall software development to agile development
    - Breaking down development and operations barriers with DevOps teams
    - Operational transition to immutable infrastructures

    Georg Houben, Director Data Centre Software Fujistu | Simeon Holder BD Manager Red Hat
    Which workload goes where. How to avoid lock-in. And much more.

    Hybrid sounds great as a buzzword. But the reality of making it happen for your business is complex. And it’s getting more so.

    You’ve got to decide where to put workloads to help with your specific business goals. You have to fight vendor lock-in to maintain the flexibility you wanted from hybrid in the first place. And you have to manage the wants and needs of different stakeholders.

    Our Hybrid IT webinar will help you with the real challenges behind the buzzword. Red Hat and Fujitsu IT are joining forces for this session, in which industry experts Georg Houben and Simeon Holder will discuss the detail of making Hybrid IT work for your business.

    The key insights you’ll take away are:

    - Which workload to put where to support your business
    - What the risks of hybrid are. And how to protect against them
    - Which processes to put in place
    - How to manage stakeholders as you go
    - How to use OpenSource and avoid vendor lock-in

    According to InfoWorld, 'Hybrid IT in the enterprise has emerged primarily as a response to DevOps.'

    As such, it is no surprise that the traditional 'disruptive' DevOps practices need to be adapted for the enterprise. From an integrated approach to application life cycle management, to utilising the best parts of DevOps in the mainframe environment, the new modes of enterprise IT need to work with the legacy mainstays to deliver secure, fast and robust services.

    Join our expert panel as they share how to inspire collaboration to harness the new era of Hybrid IT and Enterprise DevOps.

  • How to Build a Better, More Successful Hybrid Cloud Strategy Recorded: Sep 11 2019 55 mins
    Margaret Dawson, VP Portfolio Product Marketing and Paul Cormier, EVP - Products and Technologies, Red Hat
    Cloud is becoming integral to many digital transformation strategies. But less than 20% of mission-critical workloads have moved to public or private clouds. Why? Because moving to any cloud—public, private, hybrid, or multi—is complex.

    Successful hybrid cloud strategies allow applications to
    - Move across environments
    - Establish consistent security policies
    - Automate and manage resources

    But technology alone doesn’t lead to this kind of digital transformation. It takes open architectures, processes, and cultures to build an IT system that not only brings true interoperability, consistency, and scalability to your cloud infrastructure but back into your datacenter’s bare metal and virtual machines.

    Join this session to learn why an open approach to architecture, culture, and process allows apps— and ideas —to flow more consistently from one place to another.

  • Why Agile Integration Is Critical To Successful Digital Transformation Recorded: Jul 9 2019 44 mins
    Randy Heffner, VP and Principal Analyst at Forrester
    Agile integration strategy — combining integration technologies, agile delivery techniques, and cloud-native platforms to improve speed and security of software delivery — is a critical foundation for successful digital transformation.

    The pace of innovation and disruption continues to accelerate, driving faster change to business models, processes, and applications. Firms that also quickly reconfigure and reconnect old and new applications have the advantage, and those with slow integration processes are at serious risk of losing customers.

    In this session, Red Hat’s guest speaker, Randy Heffner of Forrester, will describe the blurring lines between integration and application development, outline the foundations for agile integration, and provide guidance for how to build and accelerate your ability to drive business change by improving your software integration and delivery capabilities.

  • The End of the Iron Age - Building a Private Cloud Infrastructure Recorded: May 20 2019 58 mins
    Julio Villarreal Pelegrino and Stephane Lefrere
    It’s no secret that IT leaders have many factors to consider when choosing the right infrastructure for the business. Organizations are often bogged down by security policies, budgets, and compliance requirements, as well as expanding workloads that require additional support. Private infrastructure is often considered when businesses inevitably reach the limits of their hard-wired and virtual infrastructures. But, implementing a private cloud infrastructure can be a daunting task.

    In this webinar, we’ll discuss the keys to successfully embarking on a private cloud journey and the benefits of creating a secure, modern infrastructure.

    Topics in this session include:

    •How organizations are using existing services and resources while transitioning to the cloud.
    •How you can use infrastructure-as-code concepts to provide self-service and automation for increased productivity and agility while reducing costs.
    •What a typical private and hybrid cloud journey looks like and how it might modify your organization IT’s landscape.

    Featuring:
    Julio Villarreal Pelegrino, Sr Principal Consulting Architect, Red Hat
    and
    Stephane Lefrere, Director, Cloud Infrastructure Practice, Red Hat

  • Architecting your Cloud for Maximum Flexibility Recorded: May 13 2019 67 mins
    Matt Nolan Senior Cloud Architect, Red Hat and Julio Villarreal Pelegrino Sr. Principal Consulting Architect, Red Hat
    Once a cloud strategy is established, the next step is to put everything together in a way that delivers scalability, flexibility, and efficiency. This involves identifying your most common private cloud use cases and applying example architectures to meet those use cases.

    Open management frameworks allow you to securely deliver any application to any cloud or virtual infrastructure. And an enterprise automation framework lets organizations simplify the delivery of complex services and manage them more efficiently.

    In this webinar, we’ll detail critical steps in deploying infrastructure and management platforms that allow you to operate more efficiently and accelerate service delivery. We’ll cover how to:

    •Choose the right platforms for your business.
    •Identify your business objectives and map them to appropriate technologies.
    •Define the processes and services that can be automated.
    •Start small and scale quickly.
