Cloud Masterclass: Why cloud thrives or dies on your infrastructure

Cloud adoption is mainstream, but accelerating.

Recent research from the Cloud Industry Forum found that nine in ten organisations (89%) currently use cloud-based services and the vast majority (85)% expect to increase their usage over the next 12 months.

So, it’s a good time to explore the potential challenges, risks and rewards of multi-cloud adoption, so you can identify how to best exploit the benefits, while also avoiding the pitfalls.

In an earlier webinar, we highlighted 3 common challenges that organisations face with multi-cloud adoption:
- traditional infrastructure not supporting cloud transformation
- complexities of multi-cloud management
- attraction and retention of the right skills and tools to manage and secure hybrid cloud

In this live expert panel, we turn our focus on infrastructure and explore in more detail why cloud networking in particular is so critical to your cloud strategy.

Join our experts as they share their in-depth experience and learning and get some valuable tips on how to get your multi-cloud strategy in good shape.

  • Cloud masterclass: delivering hybrid cloud successfully and at scale Jul 9 2019 9:00 am UTC 30 mins
    David Simpkins, Simon Walker, and Ryan Greer
    A cloud-only approach can present problems that we’ve discussed in earlier webinars. And it’s these problems that are driving most global organisations towards a hybrid cloud strategy. But how do you deliver successfully on that approach at scale?

    As cloud solutions prove their reliability, security and deliver on their cost advantages, the rate of migration will only continue to increase. But not all workloads can migrate to the cloud. Some legacy services are restricted because of technology, regulation or security. And there’s the burden of proof that the cloud has transformed costs.

    86% of customers with workloads in public cloud by 2020 will be multi cloud (1)
    80% will overshoot cloud budgets due to lack of cost optimisation by 2020 (2)

    How do you get visibility across your private and public cloud estate and manage both effectively? Which workloads will migrate and which won’t? And once you have workloads in the cloud, how can you optimise costs to deliver against your business plan?

    These are the questions we’ll explore with a team of experts on private and public cloud migration services in our webinar on 9 July. They’ll share what they’ve learnt from tackling these challenges with large multinational organisations.

  • Cloud masterclass: mastering multi-cloud management Recorded: Apr 30 2019 32 mins
    David Simpkins, Simon Walker, and Dushan Ratnam
    In this masterclass, we explore how best to manage your multi-cloud environment and achieve business success.

    According to the Cloud Industry Forum:
    - Over 1/3 of organisations are using at least 3 different cloud providers
    - Over half the organisations believe that their security and regulatory solution for their cloud-based services isn’t as good as it could be

    The worrying conclusion is that it’s getting harder to manage your cloud experience across hybrid (public and private) cloud, and your compliance manager is going to get more demanding!

    This doesn’t just need the right tools, process, or systems, it needs the right people and skills, especially as you grow and scale your cloud.

    Are you getting the best guidance from your service providers to help you succeed?

  • Expert panel: How to Secure your Business from Network to Cloud Recorded: Jan 23 2019 29 mins
    Rob Daniels, GM, security portfolio strategy & propositions, & David Simpkins, GM, managed services & public cloud
    You’re under immense pressure for digital transformation. Moving to the cloud presents new possibilities: but the security of your data and apps is critical. It’s not all plain sailing because the cloud requires a fundamentally different approach to security. If you dig your heels in, you’ll find that Shadow IT increases and people will circumvent you. It’s also increasingly difficult to keep an eye on your entire network, so you’ll need to continually reassess where you’re most exposed.

    In this webinar, live from the studio, you’ll discover how to:
    - Create a security strategy that works as an enabler to support your cloud migration, not a separate work stream or standalone function
    - Take steps to protect your new cloud infrastructure as well as your legacy network
    - Avoid certain pitfalls when it comes to cloud migration that could open up new vulnerabilities and threats
  • Cloud migration: two paths to avoid Recorded: Oct 24 2018 31 mins
    David Simpkins, Elena Christodoulou and Dushan Ratnam from BT
    We regularly see two main paths being taken when organisations decide to roll out a cloud project – and either can lead to all kinds of problems.

    Often, we hear “everything must be cloud first”, but at the other end of the scale, there are organisations letting business units do their own thing. Each approach can negatively affect the success and benefits cloud has to offer.

    We can help you navigate the potential storms quicker and more easily. Hear from our cloud experts about some of the best practice in successful multi-cloud projects. Learn how to become more agile and innovative, whilst reducing your costs. It’s never too late to get your cloud journey on the right track.

    Join David Simpkins, General manager, managed services and public cloud, BT; Elena Christodoulou, Director, global strategic alliances, BT; and Dushan Ratnam, Senior product manager, BT, on 24 October,2018.
